Acquaint Us With A Recent Challenging Case Study Pertaining To The Success Of The Company's Intervention.
A global turbine manufacturer, was suffering from their Overall Equipment Effectiveness of around 35 percent. The major stumbling block was their paper based workflows which resulted in operators using older versions of drawings & process documents that lead to reworks and rejections. We built a solution for them using TPMTrak Production Monitoring, eSHOPx and Energy Monitoring. The results were extremely satisfying as the client increased their OEE from 35 percent to 66 percent, eliminated rejections and reworks arising due to referring to old versions of drawings. From an environmental perspective, we were able to also make sure that over 500 sheets of paper & prints were saved every month. The client today clocks a perpetual annual savings of over Rs.1.5 crore using our Industry 4.0 solutions.

With the manufacturing world revolving around the axis of performance, productivity, and profits, it has become inevitable for manufacturing companies to develop robust productivity culture and operational strategies to get hold of the holy grail of constant improvement. One of the preliminary steps to tackle this challenge is unearthing the roots of gaps in performance. While manufacturing companies across the globe deploy lean methods to improve their throughput, researches divulge that 90 percent of the companies do this without reliable and detailed real time machine and process data something that today's highly competitive manufacturing environment can't afford not to have.
