IDCON South Carolina Paper Mill Case Study
In 2014, the South Carolina, US, paper mill had a directive to improve its production output through maintenance uptime while keeping the fixed cost the same.
An increased output would increase the margin in a highly competitive and, in some cases, shrinking market.
IDCON was engaged in 2015. We started by conducting the Current Best Practices (CBP) audit for the mill. The mill scored a 33 versus a best-in-class score of 75. The reliability of the mill’s paper machine 3 (PM3) was lacking vs other mills within the company. Maintenance unscheduled downtime was 6.4% in 2014.
