CASE STUDY

COCA-COLA ENTERPRISES SELECTS LINEVIEW™ AS THEIR SYSTEM OF CHOICE.

A marketer, producer, and distributor of Coca-Cola products, Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) is the exclusive Coca-Cola bottler for Europe including Great Britain, Belgium, continental France, Luxembourg, Monaco, The Netherlands, Sweden and Norway. In 2015, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Coca-Cola Iberian Partners and Coca-Cola Erfrischungsgetränke AG formed Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP).

Standardizing Production Monitoring

With manufacturing sites across Europe, it was no surprise to learn that Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE, now CCEP) had many different systems being employed to manage plant performance and that they were achieving mixed results. The systems varied from manual to fully automated data capture.

The business wanted a single, cutting-edge solution across all their facilities to standardize the system and the approach through which site teams were reviewing performance and driving effective actions to improve plant productivity. CCE chose the LineView™ system as the standard production line monitoring system for their Supply Chain Division. Over a three-year period, LineView™ has been implemented on every production line in Europe to help increase efficiency and reduce manufacturing costs.

Site-wide increase in OEE of 20% inside 24 months

“The power of LineView™ is in the speed with which teams can identify the real losses to efficiency whilst providing the drill-down necessary for highly effective problem solving.”

LineView™ was chosen as the system of choice

Developed from an operational perspective, LineView™ presents performance information in a format that helps line teams instantly and accurately identify the critical area of focus.

Applying 6-Loss Analysis and Theory of Constraints principles, LineView™ identifies the effect of all downtime on the overall line output without the need for any operator intervention, and accurately pinpoints the true cause of productivity loss. The visual user interface presents actionable information in an easy-to-read format, enabling rapid decision making and allowing production teams to focus their efforts on taking effective action rather than spending time analyzing and interpreting the data.

The results

Once LineView™ was installed, the accuracy and availability of information and the potential for real improvement made a giant leap forward. The system has been implemented on more than 70 production lines across Coca-Cola Enterprises.

Site-wide increase in OEE of 20% inside 24 months

OEE or Overall Equipment Effectiveness represents the percentage of manufacturing time that is 100% productive. A 1% improvement would itself translate to millions in additional revenue. Coca-Cola enterprises plants improved their OEE by 20% less than 24 months of LineView™ implementation.

Improvement of 6% across the entire enterprise

Individual sites achieved an impressive 20% increase in OEE, while operations across the wider enterprise achieved a combined 6% improvement in production and distribution. The benefits of LineView™ extend beyond the production halls. We call this the ripple effect of efficiency improvement.

ROI delivered based on logistics saving alone

An effective and efficient investment delivers the highest return on investment (ROI) for any business. Lineview, delivered ROI for Coca-Cola Enterprises through significant savings in logistics costs. This improvement was driven by an overall increase in yield and consistent quality, which led to a more efficient supply chain and ultimately, cost savings.
