Idhammar’s CMMS & OEE systems in action in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries
Smith & Nephew
The Hull manufacturing site of Smith & Nephew is well on its way to being the leanest and most efficient health-product operation in the world. The company at the cutting edge of advanced wound management is using Idhammar’s OEE System in a fully-automated environment as a key component to drive its TPM programme. By reducing the 6 losses of OEE, one asset that was running seven days a week and still struggling to meet customer demands is now achieving the same volume in four-and-a-half days.
A long standing customer, Patheon is a full service pharmaceutical manufacturing and development company. Operating in the highly regulated pharmaceutical industry, the company requires robust, FDA compliant maintenance procedures – and using Idhammar MMS the engineering team is able to quickly and easily demonstrate compliance.
Mentholatum have been specialising in family healthcare for over 125 years. They manufacture and supply pain relief heat and freeze brands from its Scotland site to the UK, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The company required increased visibility of its manufacturing, robust reporting and the ability to drive continuous improvement – using Idhammar OEE the manufacturing team are able to have clear visibility on the shop floor and access to granularity of data which in turn supports continuous improvement.
When world leading manufacturer of single-use surgical & wound care products, Molnlyke Healthcare decided to measure OEE, it chose Idhammar Systems to help them implement real-time data capture, eliminate data duplication, improve accuracy, and remove shopfloor distractions so that operators could focus on the integrated Improvement Agenda.
The future of Rockwood Pigments’ site maintenance operations at Kidsgrove, Stoke-on-Trent, is bright – and steadfast. The leading manufacturer and processor of liquid, powder, and granulated colour pigments, is making colourful progress with the Idhammar CMMS that does everything the Engineering Team Leader needs it to and he is enjoying the benefits of more efficient operations.
