Unilever Leeds Selects Cimlogic to Implement OEE System

Following a successful OEE pilot study, Cimlogic has secured a project to work with Unilever which produces household brands of deodorants and antiperspirants including Lynx and Dove at their Leeds production facility.
Unilever were looking to replace their existing losses system with an off the shelf package to measure plant and machine metrics such as downtime, OEE, TEEP, MTBF and MTTR . Cimlogic will implement TrakSYS™ real time operations and performance management software to measure and improve the efficiency of Unilever’s production lines as part of the company’s commitment to continuous improvement.

It was important for us to get buy in from the operators on the shop floor, as they are key to the data input from which we can actually make improvements from. We want to achieve a better understanding of the drivers for improvement and feel we are now better equipped to respond to these through more intelligent based decision making’’.
