FINISHING TOUCHES AND STAFF SKILL
The complexity required for finishing a piece will also impact production time. If a project needs to be smooth-finished (compared to a pebbled finish) this will take more time because the coating needs to be sanded smooth. Likewise, protective coating needs can be as basic or as complex as a project requires. At the finishing level, and indeed for the project as a whole, staff skill will also play a significant role. At each stage of production the level of training and the technical ability that staff possesses should be taken into account. A solid familiarity and aptitude with the equipment and production processes will considerably reduce the time it takes to complete a project.
