Infineum Improves Shift Handover with j5 Operations Management Solutions (case study)

Infineum is a world leader in the formulation and manufacturing of petroleum additives for lubricants and fuels. The company draws on nearly 80 years of innovation and has manufacturing plants in the USA, China, Germany, France, Singapore, Italy and Brazil.

As part of the company’s commitment to global manufacturing excellence, Infineum required a solution that would standardize shift handover processes and reporting across the whole group. Infineum also needed a solution that would ensure consistency while accommodating the diversity of different sites, units, languages, etc. The data would need to be brought together from a variety of sources, and a standardized daily production meeting report for each site was required.

Infineum’s overall goal was to improve reliability, accuracy and communication effectiveness, while simplifying routine operator tasks and the preparation of shift reports.

As a result of implementing Hexagon’s j5 Operations Management Solutions, information is now available to all members of the operations team and beyond, leading to enhanced communication flow, time savings and increased accuracy. By harnessing the right information quickly, a formalized j5 Shift Handover process is contributing to improved decision making which helps reduce operational risk.
