Plastic Omnium Automotive, Edison Road site

Plastic Omnium Automotive,  Edison Road have historically encountered issues with lost time due to locating the relevant spare parts onsite, which has impacted the OEE (overall equipment effectiveness) of our key processes. We also experience uncontrolled picking from consignment stock and duplicate orders due to poor live visibility of spare parts on site. 

These issues have led our business to implement the Agilon system, primarily to improve the control, visibility and reduce unnecessary costs of the maintenance spares & repairs across our Edison Road site.  Secondarily, so that we can move the maintenance spares & repairs from the P&L to the Balance sheet, thus improving the budgeting process & control, finally to meet our IATF (International Automotive Task Force) audit standards for stock control and appraisal.
