With UK productivity some 30 per cent behind the USA, Germany and France many manufacturers will be keen to engage Forcam at the NEC. The company typically achieve productivity gains of around 20 percent in the first year following the installation of their manufacturing execution systems. Increases as high as 33 per cent have been recorded, so pay-back is rapid, with all users achieving further continuous improvement.
UK Managing Director Andrew Steele explained, “World-wide there are over 60,000 machine tools and manufacturing processes interlinked using Forcam Force factory shop-floor management software. This streams accurate production instructions to machine operators, gathers information from the operators and machine systems, with instantaneous analysis and reporting so supervisors and managers have an accurate real time picture of production status. Any problems are immediately apparent and can then be resolved quickly.”
Andrew will be making a presentation in Forum 5 on November 5, at 12.15pm. He concluded, “We are looking forward to showing how our experience working with the likes of Daimler, Audi, BorgWarner, GKN Aerospace and many others can be deployed to increase production efficiency in UK factories.”
