Upon analyzing the data provided by the system, the team found out that some of their machines were being utilized for less than an hour each month. This finding highlighted a significant opportunity to streamline operations and reduce maintenance costs.
In response, the team made the decision to remove the first five vehicles from their fleet entirely and reassigned other Shell vehicles to different sites.
With the implementation of the solution, they:
- Minimized machine downtime
- Reduced number of underutilized machines
- Improve equipment reliability
- Decrease maintenance costs
- Streamlined operations
- Improve overall efficiency
Overall, the insights provided by the solution played a crucial role in optimizing the Sarnia Manufacturing Center's machinery operations.
By taking proactive measures to address inefficiencies and underutilization, Shell Sarnia was able to reduce costs, increase productivity, and ultimately improve its bottom line.
Moreover, as is often the case with IoT, this solution contributes directly to the achievement of some of the united nations' sustainable development goals (SDGs).
