OEE can bring great value to CPG companies, from minimizing the needs for stops to optimizing labor use to reducing the likelihood of quality variation. Learn how leaders at the FSO Institute and Barry-Wehmiller have improved performance of processing and packaging lines by using industry best practices and tools from PMMI’s OpX Leadership Network–including an OEE Calculator.

Speakers will share a Case Study on how they used the calculator which is free to all CPG and supplier companies as a means for unifying internal stakeholders around identification and prioritization of improvement efforts as well as:
• Set target performances for processing and packaging lines
• Estimate labor needs and costs
• Uncover savings through baseline performance
