Douglas Bryce Comments

Cycle Time Costs


We tend to overlook the need for improving profitable jobs.

Even profitable products should be analyzed for cycle time improvements.


In a 24 hour facility, saving just 1 second per cycle can result in a bottom-line increase to profits of $10,000 annually.

Waterline Scale


Removing scale from mold and chiller waterlines is essential to improving cooling performance.


A buildup of just 0.015” in a 1/2” line can result in a cooling loss of 40%.


Are You Benchmarking?


Be wary. Your competition is not going to provide you with any accurate information.


Instead, you should consider benchmarking your own facility.


Record all of your existing conditions of interest. Then do everything you can to improve them.
