CHALLENGE

Nice-Pak had previously used a number of paper-based recording systems to collect and analyze manufacturing performance information. The data was neither detailed nor timely enough to accurately determine what corrective actions were required — they could only account for 60% of lost time, but had no idea about the other 40%. The operations team needed to move to a real-time environment, improving data collection processes and more effectively responding to customer demands.

SOLUTION

Nice-Pak invested in Factory MES - Manufacturing Execution System software designed specifically for process manufacturers.

RESULT

After implementing Factory MES, Nice-Pak achieved a 50% reduction in changeover time and significantly reduced downtime instances caused by minor stoppages. One shift alone has delivered record output for six consecutive months. Nice-Pak has also improved efficiency by 10% and will achieve full ROI in nine months.
