OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is a Continuous Improvement tool to manage uptime, quality, and equipment performance--paramount drivers for most food processing and packaging companies.
Join us to learn how to keep your operations on track, by using methodologies and tools to execute an adaptive business improvement plan. Wonderware and its partner Callisto will share how leading global food and beverage companies have succeeded by building an OEE foundation to tackle performance and line issues, and obtain sustainable results.
Mike will discuss how to use OEE and Performance as part of a continuous improvement regimen, drawing on Callisto’s experiences with Mars, Campbell’s Soup, and other major F&B producers.
Immediately following the presentation is a Q&A session moderated by Automation World editor, David Greenfield.
