Improve Packaging-line Performance

Feb. 9, 2010
The Proficy SmartStart Packaging Performance Solution is a pre-built software and services solution designed to help users improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), production rate and order fulfillment while reducing waste and labor costs by providing critical insight into high-speed packaging line operations. 
Engineers and maintenance technicians can use the system to gain insights into packaging performance at each manufacturing site within an enterprise. The software system provides pre-built displays and real-time visualization of packaging-line operations data, including tracking of downtime and waste, as well as tracking of team performance. When fully implemented, customers have reportedly seen OEE increases on packaging lines of between 5 percent and 12 percent over time.GE Intelligent Platformswww.ge-ip.com/smartstart800.433.2682
