RS Production from Good Solutions help Sandvik SRP increase net production by up to 15%
"We increased net production by up to 15% in multiple production segments without extra machine time or personnel costs."
Thomas Bauer, Quality & Production Technology Manager at Sandvik SRP
Sandvik’s unit in Svedala is a world-leading supplier and the global development center for crushers used in the mining industry, quarrying and construction operations. Sandvik SRP in Svedala has been manufacturing equipment for the mining industry since the 1950s. Being a world-leading supplier is based on quality and good profitability to be able to stay at the forefront of development.
Sandvik SRP has worked methodically with Lean and measured efficiency at the machine level. Unfortunately, the OEE-system used tied to the specific machinery used. Occasionally reporting was also done using pen and paper.
When machines were upgraded or replaced, consistent measuring of production efficiency could not be maintained. Sandvik needed a flexible and easy-to-use solution to get manufacturing facts for day-to-day management and to support improvement work. After evaluating several different solutions, Sandvik selected RS Production from Good Solutions.
Machine operators can easily code stops and loss reasons using RS Production.
RS Production makes it easy to discuss solutions based on facts, have a common foundation and visualize information so that everyone can understand.
RS Production from Good Solutions met Sandvik’s high set standards. Comprehensive machine compatibility, usability, and the ability to monitor production in real-time were some of the critical requirements. Using RS Produdciton operators now easily code stop- and loss reasons. The data is made available in visual reports in real-time for production- and factory management. RS Production now provides decision support to daily management activities and gives relevant data to support improvement work.
“RS Production makes it easy for us to discuss solutions based on facts. We have a common foundation and can visualize this information so that everyone can understand. RS Production enables us to adjust what data we present and how we visualize it,” says Thomas Bauer, Quality & Production Technology Manager at Sandvik SRP.
All in all, Sandvik makes it flexible, simple, and effective for all production segments to be able to make better decisions faster. By providing access to visual and easy to understand production facts.
Sandvik is now able to identify true bottlenecks across the factory. This work has resulted in net production increase by up to 15% for some product segments. Without using more shifts or machine-time.
At the same time, Sandvik sees excellent potential for future improvements and efficiency gains. By using the facts from RS Production as a basis for decision-making in day-to-day management and improvement work, the efficiency has been consistently increased and maintained. As a result, Sandvik can utilize its full production capacity and avoid expensive machine investments.
