The client is a leading international personal hygiene group having products for Baby Care, Feminine Care, and Adult Care with a presence in more than 12 countries and ever-changing business demography.
As the business grew, the need to improve legacy practices became apparent. There were challenges related to improper planning leading to higher costs of transportation and distribution. On the shop floor, the KPIs from assets were not monitored properly due to a lack of connectivity measures, resulting in improper utilization and compromisation of production targets. The management was not able to make informed decisions about new investment opportunities in terms of expansion.
The client has now overall visibility of the supply chain along with key comparisons between baseline KPIs and actual KPIs in real-time. As a result of more visibility in operations and planning there is a significant improvement in shop floor asset utilization. Due to informed decisions with the help of analysis delivered by our solution, they have now effectively reduced their carbon footprint and savings in transportation costs.
