Factory MES Enables Heinz Single Service to Immediately Reduce Giveaway, Slash Downtime, and Increase Production Capacity.
Heinz Single Service produces a variety of Heinz brand and private-label condiments, sauces and vinegars for the catering industry. The well-known brand chose Factory MES for its UK operation to reduce overweight lines and improve production efficiency.
Part of the H.J. Heinz Company and headquartered in Telford, England.
Heinz Single Service was looking for ways to identify improvement opportunities. But they lacked the visibility required to make necessary corrections.
The company chose to invest in Factory MES - a Manufacturing Execution System designed specifically for process manufacturers.
With Factory MES, Heinz immediately reduced giveaway by 1% through overfill issue resolution. The company slashed changeover time by 42%, increased capacity by 5% and has achieved real-time visibility and transparency into production performance.
The system empowers and energizes our production teams. It really is a very good system that provides the foundation for accelerating our world-class manufacturing process. Our people are just starting to realize how powerful it’s going to be.
