Reduce changeover time, improve supply chain predictability, and enhance quality and throughput
The imperative to maximize productivity while ensuring product quality and sustainability across the enterprise has never been more critical to stay ahead of the competition. Specifically, you need to aggressively improve your operations to reduce changeover time, improve quality and throughput, drive supply chain predictability, and lower costs.
For example, for the bottom-performing 70% of food and beverage (F&B) manufacturers, OEE is 74%. For the top performing 30% of F&B manufacturers, OEE is 89%, according to a study by Aberdeen Group*. This indicates that top OEE performers earn leader status. According to the same study, the aggregate of all F&B manufacturers’ OEE is 80%, which leaves a great deal of room for improvement for most companies to produce more with their existing equipment.
The good news is you can close this opportunity gap. With today’s technology solutions powered by the Industrial Internet, you have the ability to connect disparate data, leverage analytics, and gain visibility into your operations to ensure your assets are operating as they should—at every step of the process. OEE can help boost your productivity, drive Operational Excellence, and move toward optimizing your asset performance—enabling your business to stay more competitive than ever.
