"We now have the technology, the tools and the culture to drive productivity and ensure we will continue to deliver the very best value for Australian households and our export markets around the world, well into the future."

Challenge

SPC has been a staple of Australian households for almost 100 years, providing high quality products including packaged fruit, jams, baked beans and many
more.
 

Committed to delivering value from its supply chain to consumers, SPC needed insight into performance improvement opportunities to support business decisions.

Solution

Nukon developed a Manufacturing Execution System to provide the manufacturing team with real-time data and tools. This empowered them to manage multiple products across 42 processes.

The process improvements this MES offers include: machine utilisation, line changeover and start up, efficient use of cookers, paperless quality system (from 1800 paper checksto 240 paperless checks), crew visibility and flexibility, faster classification of fruit quality as it arrives in the factory, more visibility of material flow, and reduced energy costs.

Outcome

SPC now enjoys real time connectivity between their production systems and other business systems and is seeing the benefits of even greater quality and efficiency. SPC realised a return on investment which was estimated at $500,000 in the first year.
