Initial situation:

  • Two production plants with multi-purpose plants
  • Production of a variety of products by means of flexible tags
  • Three-shift operation seven days a week
  • Manufacturing of a product partly across several buildings and multiple plants
  • Mutual exchange of information important
  • Electronic shift book supports communication between the individual shifts 

Previously an Access-based software, self-developed by an employee, has been used. Due to organisational changes and an increase of production volume, a new solution was required. “Our production grows naturally - new systems are added and thus demands for a new encompassing event log“, explains Francisco Rodriguez, facility manager at Bayer CropScience. “We required a new and flexible solution.” IT project manager, Michele Troiano, adds: “The flow of information was given, but we couot exploit future-oriented possibilities in an efficient and sustainable way.”

The new event log should therefore provide a complete, accurate and auditable record of all events and the collected data should also be able to be deployed across divisions. IT expert Michele Troiano clarifies: “Important to us was a central input and information tool that comprehensively and reliably supports our communication within shift operations - and at the same high standard at which we produce.”

“For me, as factory manager, Shiftconnector is ideal“, Francisco Rodriguez says. “All information is recorded centrally and can be accessed at the push of the button thus saving us a lot of time.“

Greater transparency results in time savings

Today, Shiftconnector provides correct and smooth flow of information at Bayer CropScience. The responsible plant managers and shift supervisors as well as their deputies input and record incidents in detail that differ from plant regulations thus enabling a shift and cross-divisional transparency.

“For me, as factory manager, Shiftconnector is ideal“, Francisco Rodriguez says. “All information is recorded centrally and can be accessed at the push of the button thus saving us a lot of time.”

Information and communication: The electronic event log lists all messages as well as tasks and instructions for the morning meeting in a clear and easy to understand way.

 

The right partner at hand

Sure, as with every software there are always possibilities to optimize and it is exactly at this point that support from the vendor is crucial - not only the software has to do its job but service and support, too. “The support from eschbachIT works smoothly which has enabled us to realize some further functionality and processes“, Francisco Rodriguez adds happily.
