Customer story: Result Philips Lighting: Cost reduction and sales increase

Philips is the world market leader in the production of fluorescent tube starters. Philips wanted to replace the existing measuring system - write it down on paper, enter it in Access - and automate it. Want to be able to reduce the error sensitivity and time spent on registration.

We came to the Cierpa OEE via an advertisement for a vacancy in BN De Stem. A good timing. We were able to connect the Cierpa OEE to the existing Philips data system (Circle). The paperwork reduced considerably, the error sensitivity was eliminated and we got better reports. All this led to cost education, a price reduction and thus an increase in the number of products sold. What we are also very satisfied with is the slideshow that provides real-time information on various TV screens in the factory. This information is viewed daily by everyone (this is also a form of communication for the record manager).

In addition to the above results, Philips has also started working with the Cierpa Kaizen and Cierpa Quality. According to Philips, the different modules have made an important contribution to the implementation of LEAN.
