Have you ever wondered if your employees actually have the knowledge and skills they need to run your production floor as profitably as possible?
Have you ever wondered how much inefficiency (downtime, rejects, cycle times, etc.) could be eliminated by simply giving your employees some “Basic Training“?
If you are like most managers in the plastics industry, the answer is probably yes. The fact of the matter is, there is always more efficiency to be squeezed out of any plastics process whether it’s injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, thermoforming, etc. Yes, there is a point of diminishing returns (i.e. the extra efforts are not worth the return), but few plastics processors have their workforce operating at or near that part of the curve.
And most importantly, the further down the production efficiency curve you are today, the more impact your Basic Training will have. Much more bang for your buck.
Here is a quick and easy way to see exactly what training your employees need. It is an online assessment tool developed by Paulson called SkillCheck. There are different levels of SkillCheck for different levels of personnel. Our injection molding SkillCheck has 3 levels – Operator level, Technician/Set-Up level and Engineer level. SkillCheck for Extrusion has 1 level for all personnel.
Each assessment consists of 30 – 40 questions. All of the results are confidential and are available to only those personnel in your company that you specify.
What you will have after your personnel take SkillCheck is a blueprint for training.
SkillCheck identifies where a particular employee is strong in their processing knowledge and where they need to improve.
With your SkillCheck report in hand, you’ll know exactly what training is needed. You’ll quickly target the right training to the right employees. Your training will be as efficient and effective as possible. And most importantly, you will see immediate positive impacts to your bottom line.
SkillCheck is available in English, Spanish and Mandarin.
