CASE STUDY IN HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY
A world-leading manufacturer of optical lenses has been operating for several years in China. The improving know-how of Chinese operators has prompted the company to raise wages, leading it to adopt new technological processes in order to improve equipment productivity and reduce waste.
In the Anti-Reflective coating department, production output has been monitored for years without a clear understanding of change-overs, maintenance and tests impact (duration, frequency, etc.). The company wanted to have a “ready-to-use” and custom-made solution to measure its efficiency.

Thanks to the fully “external” PerfTrak systems, the factory was able to uniformly connect the machine park without any expensive and complex integration into machines, industrial robots or IT systems. By automating equipment tracking, PerfTrak allowed the factory to visualize the main root causes of performance losses in real-time and on a daily basis.
Teams have been able to detect some organizational issues thanks to PerfTrak analysis tools such as Pareto of losses (display of the main origins of losses) or automatic reports. On the web interface, changeover times are now measured to the nearest second, which removes one of the most critical time-wasting processes in the factory.
Implementation in the entire plant
Integration in a few weeks
100% external integration
With PerfTrak technology, workshop OEE has gained ten productivity points (from 75 to 85%) within a few weeks. Building on that success, the solution is now implemented in several of the company’s factories in India and Thailand.
