Increased production, optimal downtimes

The challenge 

A leading world company in the different sectors: the polyurethane industry, the manufacture of high-performance materials and innovating systems for the automotive industry, construction and electricity.

In order to address a surge in demand, it was necessary to optimize activities in the field of packaging.

At Alfa Consulting we helped design production planning, increase the reliability of packaging facilities and improve coordination between different business areas: Supply-Chain, Maintenance and Production.

We reduced the downtimes related to reference changes and established a protocol of actions to be followed.

We also enhanced packaging reliability by establishing the O.E.E. indicator and analyzing its evolution in order to initiate specific plans.
