Productivity Sprint Program

“The global pandemic has created uncertain times yet placed an unprecedented strain on getting food and consumer goods to market. We need to increase our line capacity and overall productivity right now.”

The global pandemic has put an unprecedented strain on U.S. food, beverage, and consumable CPG manufacturing

It’s all over the news, and you are faced with it every day you walk into the plant. The coronavirus pandemic and its variants have generated a set of new challenges for manufacturing facilities in the United States. Demand for critical food, health, safety, and personal care products is accelerating with no apparent end in sight. The additional requirements of physical distancing, deep cleaning of facilities and equipment, and rotating shifts or time gaps between shifts result in fewer hours available for production. In addition, current or potential absenteeism and outright labor shortages add to the pressure to produce more with fewer resources in fewer hours.
