With a busy plant, information and data retrieval are critical to keeping up with business. But World Kitchen, a large glass dinnerware manufacturer, found itself without support for its custom-written legacy system, and the original solution provider wasn’t around to support the hardware anymore. Hence, it began to investigate a replacement system.
It chose the GE software solution because it handles both process and discrete [decorating] production, a good fit for World Kitchen’s mixed model. The solution provided connectivity between the machines, data, insights, and people—enabling real-time visualization and analysis for the best decisions across the plant.
Using the solution, World Kitchen was able to reduce downtime and loss, and improve its throughput and processes.
