CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

NORTHBROOK, IL - Informance International, a leader in manufacturing business intelligence and enterprise manufacturing intelligence solutions announces that Diageo, the world’s leading premium drink business, now looks to Informance to drive manufacturing performance in their U.S. plant facilities in Relay, Maryland and Plainfield, Illinois. The global spirits, wine and beer company leverages Informance solutions and advisory services to support their Perfect Plant Program, with elements for the operating system foundation. With Informance, Diageo plants in Maryland and Illinois have real-time actionable intelligence for transparency of performance, and consistent communication and transparency of status.

“We consistently strive for best-in-class manufacturing performance,” comments Ish Ahamed, Vice President Supply, Diageo Plainfield. Informance enables effective continuous improvement, which is key to manufacturing flexibility, low variability, and ultimately, outstanding customer value. “The Informance pilot effort that led to the deployment in Plainfield was an eye-opening experience, exposing the extent of minor interruptions on our production lines.”

Diageo uses Informance to monitor and measure manufacturing performance. Then, armed with highly granular and rich performance metrics, the global manufacturer benchmarks operations performance to identify improvement opportunities. With Informance IMPACT, Diageo then develops action plans based on probability of success. This approach ensures that the manufacturer focuses on those improvements that deliver the greatest impact in consideration of investment and resources.

“Diageo initially became interested in Informance after a benchmark briefing that conveyed best-in-class metrics for the food and beverage industry,” comments John Oskin, Executive Vice President of Informance. “Food and beverage companies are eager to understand the financial impact of their improvement options, and our entire focus is delivering the power to discover, evaluate, and take action on opportunities to improve manufacturing performance.” Informance benchmark studies are unique because researchers use many months of real-time manufacturing performance data aggregated using the Informance Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence platform. The highly granular and rich real-time nature of Informance EMI adds a new dimension for external and internal benchmarking activities.
