Challenge

Car parts manufacturer Arlington Automotive is a division of global supply chain specialist, Arlington Industries Group Limited. Arlington Automotive’s continued growth meant that real-time performance data was a crucial requirement. In 2016, we implemented an IoT solution to provide up-to-the-minute performance data of their machine presses, resulting in a 16% productivity gain.

Gains and benefits

  • 16% gain in productivity
  • Optimised work practices and time savings
  • Direct effect on production rates
  • Increased staff motivation and awareness
  • Increased output and profitability

Arlington Automotive Case Study

//

Before the IoT project, we had 'gut-feelings' about teams of operatives being more efficient at certain types of operations than others on certain presses, however there was no reliable performance data to substantiate this. The data provided has enabled us to optimise shifts. Following the initial project on just two presses, parts per machine have increased substantially and we have been able to see a 16% gain in productivity.
