Finsbury Group Achieves “Best In Class” Using PerformOEE™ Software

Founded in 1834, Nicholas & Harris is the UK’s largest organic baker and is part of the Finsbury Food Group, leading manufacturer of cakes, breads and gluten-free bakery goods.

OEEsystems International work with high volume, proactive food and beverage manufacturing companies such as Nicholas & Harris, Muller Wiseman Dairies, Aurivo & Norbev. They are all using OEE as a key business metric in tandem with OEEsystem’s “Best In Class” OEE software, PerformOEE™ to drive efficiencies across the production cycle.

“Typically our Irish, UK, European and US client’s all face the same challenges,” says Arthur Stone, CEO of OEEsystems. “They all looking to reduce costs, increase capacity to meet demand and improve the quality of what they are producing.”

He continues: “These companies are using our innovative software tool PerformOEE™ which is suitable for all types of manufacturing processes including discrete, bulk and continuous processes. It will analyse their production data in real-time, identify the most important root cause issues and opportunities which will deliver the greatest tangible performance improvements for their business. Our clients will usually experience improvements in their OEE Score of between 10% and 30%, within the first six months of using the software.”

“The key challenge for us on data collection was that our existing system was time-lagged and was therefore at least 24 hours old before interrogation,” says Josh Heydon, Operations Director of Nicholas & Harris. “One of the benefits of moving to the PerformOEE™ software solution is that we have moved to a live real-time data collection system. Our operators are now using live data, they are no longer using paperwork to gather the results and we can use that data to generate performance steps during the course of each shift.”
