Advantages of SMS for Manufacturing

Communication is critical in the manufacturing industry. You must ensure your employees are on the job at the right times to keep things moving in the factory. Equipment needs to stay online and operational. The right amount of inventory must flow in and out of the factory to meet your requirements and your customers’ demands. SMS keeps everyone on the same page so production can continue without interruption.

Equipment Updates

The secret to a smoothly running factory is well-maintained equipment and nearly always operational. Sending your team updates about equipment maintenance status allows them to plan a production schedule that considers any scheduled downtime or maintenance. For example, when equipment A is down for maintenance, production can focus on using equipment B.
