Why Dairy Systems Management ?
On many dairies, there usually is no "system" of how things are done, just "our way of doing things", and "our way" is most often not written down, but all in the head of the owner or manager.
The larger the dairy, and the more people involved, there is more of a chance that there are some written procedures, instructions, forms or records.
To be efficient and effective, the dairy needs to manage its way of doing things by systemizing them. This ensures that nothing important is left out and that everyone is clear about who is responsible for doing what, when, where, why, and how.
These help ensure that everyone is not just "doing his or her own thing", and that the dairy goes about its business in an orderly, structured, and systemized way. This ensures that time, money, and other resources are utilized efficiently.
Large successful businesses could not function without some form of management systems. Management systems give organization and consistency to its many processes. Companies in such fields as aerospace, automobiles, military, health care, and restaurants have been operating management systems for years.
Many of the top dairies are already using Systems Management to:
- organize their dairy
- increase efficiency
- decrease costs
- manage labor
- increase production
