Challenge

  • No constant productivity on the baking lines
  • Reduce production shutdowns
  • Determine the reason for the shutdowns and their shutdown times
  • The line performance is not available real time

Solution

Objective MES offers La Lorraine the options to make efficiency visible real time on the work floor and to identify the shutdowns. It is the ideal tool to measure baking line efficiency by:

  • Measuring the baking line rhythm
  • Implementing automatic shutdown detection
  • Displaying line performance based on OEE (Overall Efficiency Effectiveness)

Results

Significant productivity improvement per line
