Digital tools for a First Time Right (FTR) strategy in manufacturing


“First Time Right” (also called FTR) is a critical goal for manufacturers, particularly those in continuous manufacturing. Producing on-spec products is vital for optimizing efficiency to minimize costs. The higher your FTR percentage, the more efficiently you operate, minimizing costs and avoiding unnecessary waste.

Making progress on First Time Right goals is a strenuous endeavor if you’re reliant on manual processes. Understanding optimal operating parameters requires complex, time-consuming analyses (and skilled employees). It’s also difficult to ensure that production teams adhere to the most up-to-date specs when using paper reports or delayed communication tools.

Automating key production elements with digital tools can remove manual errors, reduce variability, and help operators adhere to the correct procedures—regardless of current shop floor conditions.

Digital solutions are your compass to navigate the complexities of modern manufacturing and reach your FTR goals. Download our white paper now to start your journey toward producing batches and products that are right the first time.
