Improvement of filling performance in a large brewery

The immediate intervention of employees in the event of an incident is also essential for a high-performance plant. Determining the time between machine stops is one of the most effective and fastest methods to show improvement potentials. To record these manual readings, we have installed an MTBX (mean time between issue) system. With this tool, activities for troubleshooting and fault prevention can be recorded and evaluated statistically.
