Loss of production can lead to inefficiency and increased costs for businesses. Metrics can be used to gauge productivity and determine losses. Unpredictable circumstances can cause disruptions, leading to delays and customer dissatisfaction. Productivity graphs can help companies identify and resolve issues.

Loss of production is a disruption to normal operations leading to inefficiency. This can increase costs which can be difficult to recover unless the situation can be resolved quickly. Businesses can use a variety of metrics to gauge productivity and determine when they are making losses. If problems develop, they may have several options to fix them, such as moving resources, shutting down an unproductive unit, or auditing to find the source of the inefficiency and fix it.

The circumstances leading to the outage are unpredictable, making it difficult for companies to plan properly. For example, a contractor building a home may not be able to work while waiting for overdue supplies. Crews can’t get their work done and the project is behind schedule, but the contractor had no way of knowing supplies would be late. This loss of production can create a ripple effect; plumbers who expect work to begin, for example, have to wait for the framing team to finish, and so on.

A variety of projects may be subject to loss of production. Companies base their production numbers on experience and performance in similar cases. Factories, for example, can calculate the resources needed to produce a unit, such as a car. They can evaluate it in terms of man hours or raw material costs, depending on the industry and the analyst’s preferences. If it normally takes 30 man hours to build a car and this changes to 40, this indicates a loss of production.

Worker inefficiency increases costs associated with production and can lead to delivery delays and subsequent customer dissatisfaction. When bidding for contracts, it is common to add a little overage to make room for delays and other problems, but this may not fully compensate for dramatic unforeseen problems. Industries that are relied upon to produce resources, such as the oil and gas industry, can have a significant economic impact through lost production because so many other businesses rely on them. Action may be needed to stabilize prices and help the company recover.

Productivity graphs can allow companies to compare quarters and other reporting periods to determine if they are operating efficiently. A momentary dip followed by a recovery that can be traced to explicable causes may not be a major cause for concern. Significant and repeated drops can be indicators that something is wrong. The business can use an analyst to find out what’s going on and make recommendations for the next step.
