Main Objectives

The objectives of this global productivity plan were the following:

  • Allowing real-time production monitoring on twelve plant areas, with full reliability of the shown data;
  • Monitoring production for exceptions, having the opportunity to act promptly;
  • Leveraging on a true management tool for department heads and logistics and performance monitoring.

For Richel, the implementation of production monitoring had to allow to better understand the difficulties encountered during the execution of work orders (WO), recognizing and quantifying the risks of the production itself. With the installation of the next module for Scheduling and thanks to the automatic communication between this module and the MES, Richel had to be able to effectively monitor operational planning.
