OEE Drives Efficiency, Savings, and Quality for Can Manufacturers

Acumence by Flexware Innovation is used around the globe to provide Can Manufacturers useful OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) metrics. Reliance on real-time OEE data can lead to many tangible business benefits including:

  1. Efficiency Improvement: OEE data helps identify equipment downtime, speed losses, and quality defects. By analyzing this data, manufacturers can pinpoint inefficiencies and take corrective actions to improve overall equipment efficiency and productivity.
  2. Cost Reduction: Improved equipment efficiency leads to lower production costs per unit, as less time and resources are wasted. This can result in significant cost savings for aluminum can manufacturers.
  3. Quality Enhancement: OEE data includes information on quality issues, allowing manufacturers to identify trends and patterns in defects. By addressing these issues, manufacturers can improve the quality of their aluminum cans, reducing scrap and rework costs.
  4. Production Planning and Scheduling: OEE data helps in better production planning and scheduling by providing insights into equipment availability and performance. Manufacturers can use this information to optimize production schedules and minimize downtime.
  5. Maintenance Optimization: By analyzing OEE data, manufacturers can identify maintenance needs and schedule preventive maintenance activities more effectively. This can help reduce unexpected breakdowns and increase equipment reliability.
  6. Continuous Improvement: OEE data serves as a benchmark for measuring the effectiveness of improvement initiatives. Manufacturers can track OEE over time to assess the impact of their efforts and identify further areas for improvement.
