Recently we delivered 6% OEE improvement over 4 weeks in a blue chip FMCG manufacturer with our vision for Perfect Flow and 5 levels of control – see the case study here.
Production lines should be configured and controlled as a single entity with the emphasis on achieving and maintaining a steady flow of product, especially around the critical machine. Regardless of whether the lines are provided by a single supplier or by a combination, rarely do they achieve their maximum potential.
Line Balance Optimisation™ can be applied to lines:
- That are automated
- Consist of multiple machines linked by conveyors
- Where equipment speeds can be variable
- Which have conveyors / transport systems that can be used as a buffer
Watch below our new Youtube video explaining Cascade Control.
