World's largest tableware manufacturer optimises line utilisation and energy consumption

ARC, the world’s largest tableware manufacturer produces approximately five million pieces of glass everyday across 200 production lines. Scaling to meet increasing customer demand while optimising energy consumption was a huge consideration.

QiO’s Foresight Energy® application integrates with plant and production planning systems in real time to create dynamic energy efficiency indexes to baseline and predict energy reductions.

With QiO Foresight Energy®, the client:

  • Created dynamic production line performance and energy efficiency index per product and line
  • Improved line production throughput
  • Reduced energy by 5–8% per plant per annum

Question

How do we increase line performance and reduce energy?

Outcome

  • Improve line production throughput
  • Improve energy efficiency index
