3 Strategies tissue manufacturers must use to control production costs

The data that advanced Körber tissue converting technologies and equipment capture reflect key metrics on machine or line availability (downtime), performance (production speed), and product quality.

With these insights, tissue manufacturers can quickly assess their overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), and take actionable steps to manage production costs through improving machine or line processes.

But, with the proliferation of digital transformation, maximizing capacity is multi-faceted, especially when it comes to controlling production costs. As such, it requires tissue manufacturers to develop an approach that strategically incorporates all elements that funnel into OEE.
