This case study highlights the value generated by implementing a full end-to-end manufacturing operations management (MOM) solution across both a primary-processing facility and a further-processing facility. This project was launched in April 2017 and completed in the first half of 2020, when much of the world was enduring various phases of COVID-19 quarantine. The results captured in this case study are a culmination of the project team’s hard work and determination.
In primary processing, improvements were achieved through giveaway reduction. In further processing, the team observed reduction in B-grade quality products.
KPIs are displayed in real-time on the plant floor, significantly improving response time as well as enhancing quality control and production efficiency.
After the installation, 100% of real giveaway is now collected by the CAT Squared system, versus CPC’s previous sampling process.
CAT Squared’s Chinese-speaking resources worked with local process experts to develop reports displayed in the employees’ native language.
Prior to installation, most production data was captured on paper and taken to a data entry team. Now, data is viewed in real time as production is executed. In further processing, about 50 paper records were replaced by dashboard reports.
The time to trace ingredients used in production now meet customers’ requirements as CPC can report all movements made in the plant.
