WHY WAS CHARTWELL BROUGH ON BOARD?
This European food and drink producer had a very expensive problem. Having just entered a market in explosive growth, two recently installed production lines needed an uplift in production of over 80 % to satisfy customer demand. With key export clients coming online in a matter of weeks, Chartwell were brought in to make the biggest possible impact as soon as possible.
Zero Loss Analysis revealed that the average line efficiency was below 40 %. Line data was captured to discover the main losses in performance and the team got to work on the largest opportunities.
RESULTS OF THE 4 MONTH PROJECT
The project saw a 101 % increase in output in under 4 months. Major export clients had their orders successfully delivered on time and in full, allowing capture of a significantly expanded market share at a crucial growth point in the market.
