MES Drives Continuous Improvement



Plastics manufacturers are finding it more challenging than ever to remain competitive and grow business. Limited visibility into plant performance, constant pressure to drive leaner and more efficient operations, regulatory requirements, and expanding into new global markets are just a few of the many challenges surrounding today’s rapidly changing manufacturing landscape. Opportunities await plastics manufacturers who face these challenges head-on. Automotive plastics manufacturer Johnson Controls turned to a manufacturing execution system (MES) and saw significant results:

  • Decreased scrap and machine downtime

  • Improved conversion cost and overall productivity

  • Reduced changeover time and the annual cost of quality
