Performance management on 2 automated packaging units

Galien LPS installs the software on its Sens and Nevers sites in order to follow its packaging lines for medicines with a rate of 10,000 box per hour.
Each line is equipped with 5 to 6 machines: thermoformer, cartoner, checkweigher, shrinkwrapper, packer…

An important element of this project was the choice of the reference machine for the collection of line information.
On its 2 sites, Galien LPS has equipped 8 packaging lines with the MES Aquiweb software in order to:

  • Automatically upload the OEE of the group by exporting data
  • Support the SMED approach and in particular the “changeover” (change of series)
  • Monitor team performance
  • Measure the evolution of performance following the implementation of action plans
  • Following production activities
  • Improve productivity by analysis of produced quantities (good and scrap), times and causes of equipment stoppages
  • Improve responsiveness to hazards
  • Improve exchanges between the different actors
  • Provide data to users with real-time, reliable, directly capturing on lines


For operators:

  • Declaration start and end of task: production (fabrication order), non-production (indirect tasks)
  • Qualification of machine stops (injection molding machine)
  • Access to the history of their working day
  • Real-time dashboard for their workstation or machine with visual alerts

For managers :

  • Real time workshops supervision
  • Automatic machine time tracking (OEE)
  • Tracking of people’s time, analysis of performance at the reference
  • Management of the SMED on change of series
  • Follow-up of non-qualities / non-conformity
  • Traceability: reference, people, position, non-compliance
  • Have a computerized return of all stopping times
  • Follow-up of causes of arrest to define action plans
