What’s getting in the way of your operation’s true potential?
Put a stop to short stops
Firefighting can mean your operators aren’t fully undertaking their true roles. The time taken to put right short stops adds up to significant levels quickly. Wherever you’re experiencing stoppages in your filling and packing operation, the true problem is visibility. Without an understanding of what causes your short stops, and in turn the overall impact on your operation, these issues will continue to plague your efficiency figures.

With greater vision comes a clearer path forward. Understanding the challenges your operation faces are the first steps to profitable improvements. With accurate data and trends, decision making can be backed with real, actionable intelligence gathered from your operation. The next step of your journey begins with the right information.

Outcome story from GE
As packaging is at the end of a highly specialized production process, flexibility is vital if Coloplast’s round-the-clock packaging operations are to keep running smoothly. Naturally, when short-notice shifts and unscheduled production halts occur during packaging, operators must respond immediately. With Proficy software automatically surveying every packaging step on every machine, problems can be identified and solved when they first arise, cutting response times to a bare minimum.
