    thank you for entering inmy post

    I want to speed up theprocess on some CNC milling machines, but my manager told me that ifI do it I will make people redundant

    I don't agree with that,as I think that every product which the company doesn't sell is anopportunity for the competitors to share the market

    my company are recruitingpeople who are not engineering

    I don't want to makepeople redundant, but I don't understand why if you can speed up theprocess and improve the skill of the company why they don't want todo that

    any suggestion accordingthis matter will be very appreciated

    thank you in advance

    It's tricky to answer without knowing your operation / markets / customers and the capabilities of your machines / tooling.

    Although there is a "general" drive within the industry to reduce cycle times, machines and tooling need to be up to it otherwise quality issues can occur. I used to do work for a firm where cycle times were a secondary consideration; they (and the customers) were more concerned that the work was accurate (and where customers were willing to foot the bill if the job took a bit longer) - but that's with workpieces with price tags of 100,000 plus (oil / gas / nuclear work), and not something you risk getting wrong.

    Your boss is talking about redundancies; bear in mind this is a bill which your firm would have to foot (except during insolvency) and could run to tens of thousands of pounds - a hell of a lot during tough economic times.

    Maybe your boss cares more about his workers than his profit margin.
