Increase Truss Production.
The problem is that truss production is always limited to producing those trusses and jobs which have already been cut.
As the old truss makers adage goes “You can’t press what isn’t cut”.
It was this problem which led to the invention and development of the Turb-O-Web System.
The Turb-O-Web System™ was never about cutting.
It was always about making more trusses- even though it is a cutting innovation.
But in order to produce more trusses and jobs the cutting had to be taken care of first.
This is where the idea of standardized timber webs available precut in a range of standard lengths was born.
The idea was that fewer plant resources needed to be devoted to cutting in-plant
– yet more cut parts could be provided to the jigs for truss manufacturing.
Cutting truss parts in a truss plant is not truss manufacturing
– It’s just getting ready to make trusses.
And that is all it is.
Resources Are Always Limited In Truss Plants.
By lowering the plant resources devoted to cutting then more resources are available for actual truss production.
This means that less limited resources are required on a “per Job Basis”, leading to higher truss output.
How to make more trusses using precut Turb-O-Webs.
1 Maintain Current Saw Output.
Keep the saws running at their current daily output – in total pieces per day.
However, only send to the saw the chords and those webs which cannot be replaced by Turb-O-Webs.
This means the sawyers need to cut less parts per job – so they can cut more jobs !
Actually it’s about 33% more jobs !
2 Add the precut Turb-O-Webs to the saw’s output.
We now can simply add the precut Turb-O-Webs to the saw’s output.
It works out that 1 precut Turb-O-Web can be added for about every 3 chords and other webs cut by the saw.
*****That is a 1 for 3 (i.e. 33%) boost in truss parts sent to the jig per day.*****
(What else does that for NO capital investment ? )
But it gets even better…
If you think more about this, ~ 33% more parts were delivered to the jig in a day- but the sawyers worked 25% less time on each job.
*****So on a “per job” basis 25% less saw shed resources were used cutting parts.*****
So more jobs went to the jig at a lower cost per job. ¹
All without any capital expenditure.
3 Make More Trusses.
There will now be ~ 33% more parts available for assembly.
Some re-organisation at the jigs will provide a sustainable increase in the number of trusses (or jobs) produced per day.
It’s better to make more trusses than cut more parts !
¹ There are some extra costs to consider- Precut Turb-O-Webs will probably cost a little more than timber + nail plate costs may be slightly higher. Both these costs added together do not significantly reduce the benefits described above. Both web cost and nail plate sizes are covered further down in this website. Remember also that NO capital Investment is required with Precut Turb-O-Web.
