You are not logged in. Consider these WOODWEB Member advantages:
KPI - production / payroll3/7
Do you guys have information on industry standards for production dollars / payroll dollars? Or what do you have approx. for those figures?
We are a 25 man high end custom commercial shop doing a lot of PL casework with fancy wood / stone reception desks, office buildings finished wood paneling, base; a lot of offices, medical, some retail.
I would be grateful for your help.
We are a smaller shop doing similar work. Specializing in curved case work, curved moldings and anything someone in their right mind would avoid. Considering that a case could be a simple box or an ellipse and could be melamine or architectural matched exotic veneer $/man could vary by huge amounts in the same shop. I don't think you will get a useful answer.
I'm in agreement with Larry. The only records that really matter are your own. You need a way to tell if you're improving or not.
Trade associations sometimes track this, ask AWI if their cost of doing business survey tracks this.
Otherwise ARE (Association For Retail Environments, used to be NASFM).
I know NASFM used to track $ per production employee as well as lot of other metrics.
Lots of items skew these numbers.
Thanks Alan. Yes of course, a lot of factors, lot of different types of operations, and of course the focus is always improving what you did before. Just looking for a starting point for comparison.
My shop produces wood components, 9 man, so not an exact comparison, but I'm at 172,000 per man.
