Factory Optimisation

HOW DO WE CREATE MEASURABLE FACTORY OPTIMISATION?

We are moving from the physical to the digital factory, from paper-based to digital management, from manual to automated supply chain management, from static tables to dynamic dashboards and on-the-fly validation. Big data and the IoT (Internet of Things) create new opportunities. We are working with clear goals, KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and complex processes.

We create measurable factory optimisation when we achieve:

  • Rational manufacturing processes reducing costs and improving earnings
  • New competitive advantages improving customer satisfaction and increasing revenue

WHY A FACTORY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM?

Competition in the food industry and other regulated industries is constantly increasing. New demands are made for food safety, sustainability, consistency of supply, and new and more product variants.

This development requires measurable factory optimisation and an efficient and flexible factory management system. We must digitise the physical factory to get the full overview and optimise even small processes in the factory.

DIGITALISATION

Not that many years ago, factory management was based on paper and manual monitoring. Today, it is possible to monitor and manage the factory from one monitor and make decisions based on algorithms providing qualified proposals based on data analysis.

The figure below illustrates how digitalisation has matured factory management over the past 2 decades.

HOW FAR HAVE YOU COME?

Are you interested in being challenged? We’ll be happy to arrange a non-binding meeting to discuss how far you can get with digitalisation.

CAN YOU OPTIMISE YOUR FACTORY?

We have developed a simple calculator, calculating your annual savings when implementing AROLINK®. All you need to do is enter the key figures from your factory.

HOW IS YOUR MOM*?

*MANUFACTURING OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT

When it comes to factory management systems, the talk is usually about MES, Manufacturing Execution Systems. However, we prefer to talk about MOM, Manufacturing Operations Management. MOM is the future standard for the holistic and digital software solution creating optimum transparency throughout the manufacturing process to efficiently create measurable optimisation of the factory.

MOM STRATEGY

A good place to start the journey towards measurable optimisation of the factory is to work out a thorough MOM strategy. We can assist you as a consultant in your strategy process or as a facilitator of a MOM workshop.

AROLINK® HANDBOOK

Get a short introduction to the AROLINK® software and, not least, an idea of the benefits, savings and competitive advantages the system will give you.

AROLINK® DEMO

Get insight into the AROLINK® system and get an overview of the possibilities for you. A demo is non-binding and we’re happy to present the system at your facility.

 STRATEGY WORKSHOP

The purpose of our strategy workshop is to set clear improvement goals and develop the framework for your future MOM strategy. We are happy to facilitate the workshop at your facility.

BENEFITS CALCULATOR

We have developed a simple calculator, estimating your annual savings when implementing AROLINK®. All you need to do is enter the key figures from your factory.
