Unipak Nile completes preparation and ventures into the pilot phase of Al Ghadir World Class Operations Management (WCOM™) system.
Egyptian corrugated packaging manufacturer, Unipak Nile, has launched the pilot phase of its WCOM™ system, known as ‘Al-Ghadir’. The plant began implementing Al Ghadir’s lean manufacturing principles in Q1 2011.
Al Ghadir’s three phases -preparation, pilot, and expansion- improve company performance; reduce scraps and reworks; ensure smooth process flow; zero defects and breakdowns; balance time between various operations; and manage work in process.
Al Ghadir Pilot Phase
During Al Ghadir’s pilot phase, which will last approximately 6 months, Unipak Nile is setting up teams and training them on Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) methodology to apply on machines at the plant.
Antoine Baz, Unipak Nile Al-Ghadir Project Coordinator, states,
If a problem is flagged prior to cleaning but removed after cleaning, operators deduce that the problem was a result of dirt build-up. However, if a problem persists after cleaning, then operators should find the cause of and solution to the problem.
