The choice of Aquiweb MES software

Already equipped with “in-house” software, which had reached its limits (scalability, maintainability), Affinity Petcare wished to implement a standard off-the-shelf software solution to support its continuous improvement process.

Within this framework, Affinity Petcare has equipped itself with the Aquiweb MES software to:

  • Measure the performance of a packaging plant
  • Support the continuous improvement process
  • Assist operators in the performance of their tasks
  • Monitor quality controls
  • Distribute documentation

Report

Affinity Petcare received us in its premises near Blois. We were able to film and collect testimonies from people who use Aquiweb.

In this report, you will find Mrs. Christelle Rigolet (Activities Coordinator) and Mr. Patrice Millot (Production Manager).

“The deployment of Aquiweb was integrated into our continuous improvement strategy.

The use of Aquiweb software allowed us to cut the microfailures of the equipment at the head of the line in half.”
