Have you ever seen those food processing videos on YouTube, the ones where someone can peel and chop a coconut or bunch of bananas at breathtaking speed? You are left wondering how someone can have such rapid hand-eye coordination to enable them to work that stuff over like that, often with a sharp knife too, and end up with such neat results to boot. It is impressive, and fun to watch. That kind of efficiency and rapid effectiveness starts with a volumetric appraisal.
In other words, when you have sixteen crates of bananas to process today, some things will need to be tweaked in order to make that workload by sundown. You cannot eliminate some bananas – the impetus in production is to do more faster, not shed productivity. You cannot get six other people around the same workstation to help out, because that is also a dip in productivity. You are left to up the only two variables in the equation, and those are your own performance and the tools you employ. It becomes a challenge to apply the most astute skills and tools to tasks at scale.
Industrial Cleaning Can Be Made More Efficient
That is where those amazing skills start, and that is where every single manufacturing concern in the world finds itself too. While it might seem inane to homeowners, every swish of a broom and every swipe of a mop in a commercial setting comes with costs. Just like the guy with a machete processing bananas in that YouTube video, food processing and other factory concerns can optimise two things too – human skills and tools. South Africa typically has world-class processes in play, in the food and many other industries. Our staff are trained and skilled, and our outputs are comparable to any country in the world when it comes to food processing, for example. This means the only other component that can be tweaked to heighten productivity is the tools employed.
Looking at the most mundane aspect of factory hygiene – mopping floors – anyone outside of the bookkeeper’s office might think there is nothing to be optimised in such menial tasks. As the accountant well knows, however, such small daily inputs into production add up to impact annual profitability in no uncertain terms.
You can use any store-bought mop for mopping at home, but when you have several hundred or several thousand square metres to cover on a daily basis, the quality of tool you employ to get your mopping done and maintain factory hygiene suddenly becomes hugely relevant. Just like being faced with sixteen crates of bananas, when faced with mopping large surface areas each day – and mopping towards a high standard of hygiene to boot – the mop you employ becomes a profitability-related choice.
