Short and Precise
One solution – many locations Given the differences in products, processes, people and cultures, implementing an effective performance measuring system can be challenging. Different ERP systems, heterogeneous machine parks and a natural language barrier make it difficult to introduce standardized software in factories worldwide. In addition, the enormous size and complexity of the production processes pose a number of challenges. FASTEC has the right solution. After more than 10 years of positive experience with FASTEC 4 PRO in two plants, Bausch Health has decided in favor of an extensive FASTEC 4 PRO rollout at several locations worldwide. Individual implementation A simple project approach includes a simplified, GMP non-invasive system implementation, a harmonized loss structure and a standardized infrastructure for reporting. Measurable improvements The data from FASTEC 4 PRO enables factories to make changes and improvements in the right focus areas of their production. The system is used to collect information from the lines that is relevant to OEE. This includes the exact recording of the operating status of the lines, the actual line speed and the scrap rate.
