A major soft drink manufacturer needed the improved root cause downtime detection capabilities of OEE
A major soft drink manufacturer needed the improved root cause downtime detection capabilities of OEE 2.0 during its Beta phase to be piloted on one of their packaging lines. Integration of their numerous products, scheduling process, and dynamic changeover management were also required to support business decisions and KPI results.
Grantek worked with the customer to help them determine their core criteria for success with their future MES solution. With this information, Grantek then took on the challenge of designing and deploying the desired solution using the new OEE 2.0 module during the early Beta testing phase of the module.
With the commitment to success of Grantek’s development team, Grantek was able to learn and provide feedback to Sepasoft on the status of the new features in the OEE 2.0 module, while deploying a scalable solution for the customer.
The pilot solution has become the baseline to be used for all future OEE deployments. The final solution aligned with the customer’s existing production workflow and incorporated scheduling and changeover target management automatically, based on existing procedures by the operators. Interest in continuing to expand the pilot’s capabilities grows as more and more departments, such maintenance, production, and engineering, become engaged with the solution.
