Work Performed

Both Clockworks Productivity Analyser and Clockworks Quality Optimiser were implemented in 2001 with great success. This resulted in huge improvements in Productivity and Profitability as well as the implementation of a proper and fare incentive scheme system.

Products Implemented
  • Productivity Analyser
  • Quality Optimiser

"We use the system on a daily base to manage delays and increase the availability of the plant. The investment was just a drop in the ocean in comparison to what we are getting out of it in terms of management information." says Kobus van Rensburg, Production Manager

"Quality Optimiser gives us a holistic view of our entire production process, identifying weak points early enough in order to rectify problem areas without impacting final production numbers," comments Marcelle van Biljon, Quality Manager at Duferco Steel Processing. "It allows us to identify anything from a defect in the material used, problems with our operators not following procedures or problems with the machine, enabling us to rectify the source of the problem immediately, with a minimum breach in production."
