Take control and maintain best practices for continuous welding improvement
Like most leaders, you have the best intentions when you develop a continuous welding improvement plan for your business and set goals to help you accomplish that plan. However, old habits, lack of commitment to change from team members and limited visibility into your progress can land you right back where you were before. This can be frustrating and costly. It also stops you from realizing the long-term cost savings you need in order to sustain a successful business. When you have a continuous welding improvement plan in place, having the ability to monitor your progress so you can take corrective actions when you start to fall off track is just as important as the plan itself.
What are your challenges?
Leverage a digital welding efficiency tool that allows you to monitor your welding performance
Airgas is committed to helping you remain competitive. In addition to working with you to develop a continuous welding improvement plan in the Unlocking the Hidden Cost of Welding™ program, we also want to ensure that you are staying on track with and meeting your goals. To support that need, we’ve developed and patented a digital dashboard, Digital Welding Efficiency Analysis (DWEA), to give you visibility into how you are performing in comparison to the goals you’ve set and against your industry peers. Your DWEA dashboard will display key information specifically related to your actual usage and performance so you can easily monitor your progress in the program. You can also access more detailed information on causes and effects that help you understand why you may have fallen off track and potential corrective actions. Working in collaboration with your local Advanced Fabrication expert, you can use these insights to take immediate corrective action and resume your journey to realizing sustainable cost savings.
