FMCG Operators Box Clever to protect line speed increases

Nathanial blogged recently on how to find ‘free speed‘ – without compromising quality or safety – just by increasing the speed of your bottleneck process.

But eventually, speed problems will occur.

Over the last few months, we’ve been working with an FMCG Production Team that observed a checkweigh issue became exaggerated with increases in line speed, resulting in correct weight product being rejected.

The shopfloor theory was that the line was running too fast and should be slowed down.

But armed with slow-mo video, the Operators used our Problem Solving tool to determine the root cause and are now boxing clever, and producing faster than ever before to protect margins.
