‘APS Group Trials The Leading Performance Management Software, TrakSYS’

Cimlogic have recently undertaken a line performance study at APS Group, a Print Management and Marketing Services Company to measure key performance metrics such as OEE, TEEP and Takt in real-time, using LEANTrakTM a portable cut down version of TrakSYSTM.

The trial was implemented at APS Group in Stockport by connecting a LEANTrak unit using just two sensors to a printing line, and capturing performance data over a period of several days in January 2011. Line performance data was collected in real-time and stoppage events and notes were entered by the crew.

LEANTrak captured every minor stoppage, as well as inviting operators to enter downtime reasons for major stoppages from a predefined list, configured by Cimlogic on the day. 

APS were able to view reports detailing metrics such as Availability, Performance and Quality both in real-time and historically.

At the end of the trial Cimlogic collated the data and presented it back to APS as a concise report. The report was constructed in a way that exposed areas of opportunity for measurable improvement, and illustrated the real financial benefits of improving OEE.

LEANTrak calculates metrics such as OEE, TEEP, Takt time and MTBF using a series of over 50 built in reports. Pareto analysis as well as line speed trends are used to present performance in a very user friendly way.

A LEANTrak Trial is an excellent hassle free, no risk strategy to examine the benefits and offerings of real-time data capture, compared with an existing system. It can be connected to any process regardless of vendor or age and allows the user to see the potential of the complete performance management solution, TrakSYS.

Following on from the successful LEANTrak trial APS has selected Cimlogic to carry out a full TrakSYS implementation, as part of their ongoing commitment to continuous improvement.

If you think that you would benefit from a  LEANTrak Trial or would like to discuss your Operational Excellence goals  with a sales representative, then please call 01274 599955 or visit www.cimlogic.co.uk
