Understanding Challenges As Opportunities

The Folding Carton Company lacked visibility into operations and assets. They were unable to identify challenges in real time and struggled to adapt to changes in schedules and products, unable to manage rapid changeovers to support manufacturing.
Unable to Identify Challenges in Real-Time
Resulting in overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) losses and poor capacity planning.
Low Levels of Productivity
Excessive and manual data entry by equipment operators reduced employee productivity.
Limited Visibility of Operations
Reducing ability to respond quickly to challenges and identify opportunities for improvement.

We deployed several systems to provide accurate status of ongoing manufacturing operations, monitor and control asset use, integrate existing systems and provide real-time operational intelligence.
O3 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
Allow creation of key performance indicators (KPIs) from vision to results to provide accurate status of ongoing manufacturing operations.
O3 Meeting Management
A scorecard and action tracker to provide real time operational intelligence with end-to-end traceability and origin.
O3 Evaluate
To evaluate effectiveness vs performance and improve planning and forecast inventory.
