Line performance optimization guarantees that your production efficiency is constantly at peak level...
...so you can manufacture products of the highest quality at the lowest price.
Line performance optimisation is delivered across the whole of your product range, from factory floor automated data collection and analysis through to high-level information management - often referred to as 'shop floor to top floor'.
All information is generated in an easy to read format and communicated in real time across all business functions. So everyone who needs to know does know, early enough to take any necessary actions.
Areas of business risk such as coding non-compliance/readability, legal compliance, quality assurance, traceability and due diligence are of the utmost importance and take priority.
Then, once risks are effectively controlled and managed, improvement opportunities are prioritized and highlighted to encourage the most costly areas of wastage to be tackled first.
This is achieved both in real time and through the analysis of trends using well-known graphical tools such as Pareto Analysis (Top Losses), Root Cause Analysis, Six Sigma, DMAIC, Short Interval Control (SIC), Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF), Mean Time To Repair (MTTR), Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), Asset Care, and much more.
Within the Fast Moving Consumer Goods industry most companies seem to set the same Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Supermarket chains often rank 'Conformance to Plan' or 'Schedule Adherence' as the absolute Number One priority, the number one KPI. In other words -
'Delivering what you said you would deliver, when you said you would deliver it and to an agreed quality standard.'
The underlying KPIs which report upon the effectiveness of each process, to ensure Conformance to Plan, include:
That's where Harford Control comes in.
Whilst most companies already have most of these KPIs reported upon in one form or another, they are rarely available automatically and in real time, within a single system, directly upon the desktops of those who most need to know.
The comprehensiveness and flexibility of our integrated information management system is the true power and uniqueness of Harford Control.
