Exide Technologies is one of the world’s largest producers, and distributors of batteries. The challenge was to improve traceability, efficiency and quality across the entire manufacturing process: raw ingots, melting pots, lamination, milling, batch mixing, internal storage, assembly, charging, labelling, up to ready for shipment to customers.
In this deployment ATS implemented systems for Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), Statistical Process Control (SPC) and Tracking and Tracing. First project deployments started in Spain and Poland and rolled out in Italy and Germany. The further deployment will be in the USA. ATS was selected for our domain expertise and ability to project manage and deliver across multiple plants in different countries and the ability to provide 24/7 support in the local languages.
