CASE STUDY IN CHEMISTERY INDUSTRY

CONTEXT

One of the world’s leading rubber processing companies, and a supplier to the automotive and aeronautics industries, was looking for cost-effective and intuitive technologies to monitor the production of one of its surface treatment factories.

Because of the importance given to operational excellence, the company wanted to purchase a performance tracking system which is reliable and efficient with quick return on investment.

CHALLENGES

TEEPTRAK IMPLEMENTATION

Many performance tracking systems had been identified by the factory but a vast majority of them were expensive, complex and/or required a long implementation period. By selecting PerfTrak, the factory gave priority to the simplicity of use and installation offered by the system. Thanks to its external installation without any intrusion into machines and IT systems, a complete PerfTrak system can be implemented within two hours on any equipment.

Unlike many other performance tracking systems, it delivers simple analysis tools that can be used by operators and managers on a daily basis: Pareto, product count, alarms, automatic reports, performance indicators, history of losses, etc. No engineering skill is required to extract and visualize data: Entering the root-causes of loss into the PerfTrak interfaces allows for valuable performance monitoring in real-time so that operators can easily understand which priorities to focus on.
