Its strength lies in its ability to identify bottlenecks and illuminate opportunities to save both time and money. As the utilization of CMMS increases, overall productivity and profitability also increases by giving you the window through which to view massive amount of data that is tracked over time which enables you to make truly meaningful decisions.

With the current economic environment, there is always the tendency to hunker down and try to ride the storm out, but is that the best strategy? Probably not. In the past couple of years, a growing number of firms have begun to use training within industry (TWI) again, and the ones who are working with it seriously are garnering significant benefits. Any business can benefit from improving output per employee, resolving people issues quicker and more effectively, drastically trimming the time to train personnel (whether they are a new hire or long-time employee), and improving safety and quality.
TWI is applicable in the healthcare and service industries, not just for manufacturing. Since it was developed by industry for industry (and service) it would be ridiculous not to use such a valuable resource.
When combined with a valid business strategy and process workflow, it can put a business in a position to be very prosperous when times are good, and to be stable and OK when times get tight. Where would you like your firm to be — with the winners or the losers?
