Employee empowerment in reducing production error amount in sheet metal fabricating industry
AbstractIn this paper employee empowerment is investigated in theory. Focus has been made on reducing the overall production error amount in sheet metal component fabricating industry by means of workforce empowerment. In this paper also the level of empowerment is examined in case factories.
With the employee empowerment direct and indi-rect human errors in the production flow can supposedly be affected. It can be expected that the employee empower-ment make reductions in the overall amount of the produc-tion errors in the production flow of constructions based on fabricated sheet metal parts possible. It also can be claimed that more can be done in current situation by investing in the employee empowerment than investing in a new manu-facturing technology in the case factories studied.
