MES THINKING

ROI on an MES system – What would a 1%, 5% or 30% improvement in OEE mean to your manufacturing plant?

Are you under pressure to improve efficiencies and reduce down time, which means you’re now looking to implement smart factory technology in your plastics manufacturing business?

There are many benefits to installing an MES:

  • Significant improvements in OEE
  • Improved productivity
  • Reduction in downtime
  • Reduction in labour, energy and scrap costs
  • Improvement in quality and reliability

But perhaps the most surprising is how even a slight improvement in OEE can mean £100,000s worth of savings a year.

For example, using a fictitious but typical plant with 31 machines. An improvement in machine utilisation of under 2%, a slight reduction in scrap rate and a 1% improvement in cycle rates can mean an annual cost saving of £250,000.

This is very easily accomplished with the right information at the right time and the means to easily make any adjustments necessary.

Intouch has spent more than 20 years ensuring that our system gives users the visibility and control to easily make decisions which consistently lead to significant improvements in OEE and profitability.

OEE Dashboard

We have a simple ROI calculator that gives you an instant and accurate idea of the significant cost savings even a small improvement in OEE can have. This free calculator shows the potential increase in profit and cost reduction achieved with an Intouch system.

The calculator allows you to input limitless variables so can be used to calculate different ‘What if’ scenarios helping you with your business and production decisions. The calculator is available upon request.
