Retain and transfer the knowledge of your experienced employees.

As a mill owner, you’ve probably already invested in productivity gains, material yield improvements, value recovery, and labor reduction by adding production equipment (including sawing line and debarker) which are the visible technologies and systems in the field with gains and benefits that are quickly measurable.Productivity and quality gain, and time loss reduction are some of the more traditional performance metrics.

In spite of advanced vision, control, and optimization systems, improved performance still relies on the expertise of those that operate and adjust them to increasingly varied operational conditions.

It’s becoming more and more important to equip front-line personnel (operators and supervisors)with the tools to establish business intelligence operating standards no matter what the context, in order not only to generate anticipated results and performance improvements, but also to be less dependent on a handful of dominant players.

Improving profitability and creating new opportunities

My responsibilities include strategic planning, governance, and sales. I also have to make sure that the company continues to be an employer of choice for qualified candidates. You must, of course, have the means to make all this work as it should. To that end, we’ve invested heavily in automation, scanners, and optimizers to increase production and quality. The problem is that these machines and systems do not talk to each other. So you never get the big picture at any one point in time.

With EFFECTO we’ve automated everything to eliminate as much manual input as possible, reducing errors and taking performance to the next level. We now have total traceability on everything from wood purchasing to shipping and billing. Everyone has the information they need to get the job done, whether it’s the operators, the supervisors, or me. I can see what’s going on in the plant at any moment, know what my inventory is, and how production is coming along.

By freeing employees from non-value-added tasks, we’re able to assign them more interesting things to do and that makes them feel more valued and more appreciated.
