Prepared Foods Manufacturers in the Redzone Community
To assess the effectiveness of the Redzone Connected Workforce Solution, a benchmark study is conducted against the Redzone 90-Day productivity program every other year. The analysis compares baseline OEE to the resulting OEE uplift after 90 days and presents the resulting productivity improvement.
All Redzone community members demonstrate OEE uplifts in 90 days. Sophisticated, global manufacturers can expect double-digit increases while smaller, less mature plants enjoy >30% OEE uplifts.
The average 12% OEE uplift with an associated 22% productivity improvement across the entire sample means that users can enjoy additional capacity without adding resources or reduce costs without increasing output.
Perhaps the most impactful—but immeasurable—outcome has been the cultural phenomenon that resulted from improved communication across the plants considered in this study.
