Rapid Optimization with Affordable Data Solutions for Illovo Sugar Africa
Illovo Sugar Africa – a discrete manufacturer of sugar, headquartered in South Africa – produces a wide range of products from industrial sugars to prepacked sugar for direct consumption in domestic markets. Form Fill and Seal (FFS) Machines fill consumer stock units, and operational productivity hinges on minimizing the downtime of these machines as well as the risk of recalls from variability in product packaging. Unfortunately, FFS Machines have typically had a high probability of downtime and variability. With very little reliable, repeatable data at Illovo’s fingertips, there was no way to target and improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
