AXXOS – member of the API Maintenance Systems Group – signed an agreement with Volvo Cars (Volvo) for the implementation of the production monitoring system, AXXOS OEE in Volvo’s new production facility located in Torslanda, Sweden. The agreement include networked production monitoring with about 400 production units and is currently the single largest order recorded for AXXOS.
Volvo selected AXXOS OEE after careful evaluation of seven competing systems and after a successful pilot installation within a focused area of the factory.
”Compared to the other systems we reviewed, AXXOS OEE offer a more complete solution for our requirements of built-in functionality that gives us “best practice”. We want to spend our time on improvements within our production, not to specify and develop IT solutions”, says Agron Basha, Business Project Leader, VOLVO CAR CORPORATION.
”AXXOS OEE will show us in black and white where we have problems and identify what they are, this in turn will help us set priorities. We will be able to collect data to facilitate decision making on which direction to work towards and where we get the most out of our investment”, continues Agron Basha.
The top modern factory in Torslanda manufactures the new XC90 model.
“The new XC90 is a market success and Volvo is using almost all available time to manufacture cars. AXXOS OEE will become an important tool in Volvo’s improvement strategy and will be able to identify, and map bottlenecks early”, says Johan Junvik, Key Account Manager, AXXOS Industrial Systems.
The agreement includes AXXOS OEE and AXXOS Analyze that makes it quick and easy to analyze collected information to identify improvement potentials within the organization. AXXOS OEE Mobile allow Volvo’s employees access to the production monitoring system directly on their mobile phones or tablets.
