When Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE, now part of CCEP) chose to implement LineView™ across all European sites, they recognised not only the need to turn performance data into actionable information, but also to drive effective routines around the use of that information. LineView’s dedicated team of operational practitioners were engaged to lead the process of embedding this in to daily routines and behaviours.
Historically, the CCE site in Antwerp had a manual system to gather performance loss data on their high-speed bottling lines. Manual collection made high accuracy scores tough, but it also made it impossible to monitor the real-time impact of machine stoppages on true productivity. CCE recognised the need for clarity around which actions would bring the most improvement.
Compounding the issue was the time frame over which the manual data was captured and analysed. A 24-hour time frame meant that many of the actions identified were long after the event had occurred and were either significantly less effective or even irrelevant.
This drove an approach to performance reviews that lacked focus on critical issues, was historically-biased and lacked the urgency and capability to drive tactical changes.
LineView™ is the single most powerful manufacturing tool I’ve seen during my 15 years in operations management."
The combination of live, accurate loss information and rapid, effective performance reviews enabled regular and effective tactical reviews
(Short Interval Control).
These reviews drive regular tactical improvements as well as ensuring data integrity, accuracy and vital information flow. This same process was applied to daily and weekly strategic reviews.
LineView™ is now the sole source of information driving line performance improvement at the site.
