What is Production Attainment?

The number of units manufactured by the company (on an assembly line, the manufacturing floor, etc.) divided by target production output over a certain period of time, as a percentage.

Why should Production Attainment be measured?

Production Attainment measures the degree to which the Manufacturing function is capable of reaching its targeted production output. A manufacturing plant's attainment rate can be negatively impacted by poorly maintained factory equipment, high defect rates, ineffective demand planning or poor utilization of plant resources. A low value for this KPI will also lead to higher costs per unit produced, due to the fact that the factories' machines are not making the most of their production runs (which take time and money to set up). Factories that are consistently low performers for this KPI may want to periodically review why expected attainment levels are not being achieved (e.g., production audits, equipment inspections, etc.). Significant improvement in Production Attainment Rate can help reduce cost per unit, shorten order cycle times and, as a result, improve customer satisfaction.
