Prior to the Mestric™ implementation, the utilization of machines at Orodjarstvo Knific production facility depended on the records of production managers and was therefore somewhat inaccurate. Production and/or machine stops weren’t always promptly and accurately detected, lots of guess work and estimations were in place. Some errors even went undetected and caused more errors and production stops later on.
Because of inaccurate monitoring alone, the efficiency of the machines was lower than it should be. Most of the time it ranged between 70 and 80%. With the implementation of Mestric and real time monitoring, Orodjarstvo Knific production managers and workers got full insight into production floor operation on a larger scale, reducing the number or production error and significantly improving efficiency.
