If a crew working at 95 degrees makes 100 errors in a week, and the cost of correcting each mistake is $20, the cost of those errors is $2,000 during that stretch. If you could reduce welders’ temperature to 80 degrees, the number of heat-related errors could be reduced to 10, for a total cost of $200. That translates to a total savings of $1,800 per week. Even if the number of errors were reduced by just 50 percent, the company saves $1,000 each and every week. |
