Consultancy

Our complementary Consultancy Services help you to secure stakeholder buy-in, shop-floor engagement, and senior level commitment

Becoming a data-centric culture

Managing change is an often-complex challenge. A change management strategy is critical for realising the benefit of your new applications, your transition to digitisation, and your ability to harness and share data in real-time, for real-time improvements. It is also critical for optimising your return on investment.

Idhammar Systems are catalysts for change; across your operations and your culture. affecting departments, functions, and roles across the organisation.

Idhammar Systems’ in-house experts deliver leading consultancy across four essential topics:

Lean Manufacturing and OEE
OEE data is a core driver of Lean Manufacturing. We’ll guide you through how to extract maximum value from your data to discover, enable, and measure improvements.
Continuous Improvement (CI)
Continuous Improvement is about improved material utilisation, and reductions in labour variance, scrap and rework costs. We’ll help you use MMS and OEE tools to achieve performance improvement.
Lean TPM
Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a step beyond Lean Maintenance and Manufacturing towards reducing all forms of ‘waste’ in the process. We’ll help you focus on measuring the effectiveness of TPM initiatives.
Energy Management
Focus on energy efficiency is the order of the day in any organisation. Our consultants are experts in helping you perfect the art—operating the factory as effectively as possible to reduce breakdowns, inefficient start-ups, slow-running equipment, rejects and under-utilised capacity.

Implementation

Idhammar Systems Implementation Service ensures your systems are installed with minimal disruption to your operation and fastest time to go-live:

Planning / Project Management
The planning phase focuses on examining your training, hardware and software requirements, configurations, internal and external resources, time scales and project ownership. Our dedicated Project Management team then works with you to deliver on time, and on budget.
Data Cleansing/ Database Realignment
Your databases may be populated by out-of-date (and sometimes even out-of-compliance) data. We clean the data to produce useful “Information from Data”. Our remote services include system management, to ensure information is used to drive your improvement programmes.
Post-Implementation Review
A Post-Implementation Review with the whole project team ensures that Idhammar Systems has helped you create the foundations for rapid ROI. At this stage, process improvement and better system use opportunities are documented for consideration and planning.
Technical installation / configuration / implementation
With the plan in place, the Idhammar Systems’ technical team can set about implementing your systems for maximum efficiency. All external systems integration requirements, and data capture/migration are addressed during installation and configuration.
Training and Assistance
On- or off-site training—for IT administrators, management users and operators—is provided during system implementation phase. The modular system is easy to navigate and user-friendly, and trained staff will often be able to share knowledge with colleagues.

Integrations

Collate and manage information from disparate systems throughout your company

Our Systems Development Team is experienced on multiple platforms – Windows NT and Windows 95/98/2000. ISO9001:2008 procedures are followed to ensure quality software and services are provided.
Standard System Integration
The Idhammar MMS and OEE System integrates with a range of other systems including ERP, Financial, Time Recording, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA). Our application integration consultants can provide you with the expertise to design, build and implement interfaces to complement your other applications.
Bespoke Software Development
