Royal Peijnenburg N.V.

"2nd generation" continuous improvement, tailored to fit

Peijnenburg had plans to modernize all three of its plants and to optimize raw materials efficiency and workforce productivity, Supply Chain Director Dick Pouwels asked ARV Group to help develop and implement a system for continuous improvement (TPM) that placed proper emphasis on organizational development and "ownership". In response ARV Group worked closely with Peijnenburg management to develop a master plan for all three plants, aimed at significant base savings. 

Essentials:

  • ARV Group worked closely with Peijnenburg management to develop a master plan for all three plants, aimed at significant base savings
  • During the assessment period, ARV Group noted bottlenecks in communications to, from and on the work floor
  • The TPM program would supplement the organization's focus on the continuous improvement of physical processes (reduction of waste and give-away and the boosting of OEE) with TPM features such as PCS, improvement teams and 5S
  • Besides a new performance management system, another important goal was to achieve lasting an substantial improvements in safety and quality: as part of that effort, the Geldrop and Sintjohannesga plants underwent far-reaching makeovers during the same period as the TPM implementation

Concrete results:

  • Above-target annual savings achieved within implementation period
  • Significant improvements in material efficiencies and productivities
  • Continuous improvement organization up & running
  • State-of-the-art plant operations established, industry leader in its market

A crucial point for us was that ARV Group was able to hook up with the TPM program in a way that didn't place one-sided emphasis on tools; besides being results-oriented, their people-orientation and collaborative approach were decisive factors in the success of this demanding project.
