Idhammar WCM for World Class Manufacturing sites

The Idhammar World Class Manufacturing (WCM) System is designed to help manufacturing and maintenance teams to re-start production as quickly as possible, accurately analyse the breakdown, and support engineers in preventing it from happening again. Process driven, the solution has been developed to automate the WCM methodologies associated with the 10 technical and 10 management pillars.

Key to this approach is the “concept of zero”; WCM targets zero waste, zero defects, zero breakdowns and zero inventory. If manufacturing organisations adopt WCM methodology, and implement it correctly, they will experience improvements in transparency, communication and productivity throughout the company’s operations.

The Idhammar WCM suite

The Idhammar WCM suite of functions provides World Class Manufacturing sites with a fast and efficient means of handling their maintenance and engineering workload. This wide range of new functionality includes:


  • Current status overview
  • Machine Ledger
  • Emergency Work Orders
  • Work Orders
  • TAGs
  • Workflow management
  • Handover logging
  • Alternative work routing
  • User security


Supporting zero tolerance to waste, defects, breakdowns and inventory

Idhammar WCM is a stand-alone application that can be linked to other maintenance or production applications, including Idhammar’s OEE and MMS Systems. The solution can be implemented securely ‘on site’ or in the Cloud. The responsive design means it is optimised for use on smart devices in WiFi enabled environments.


Idhammar WCM integrates with a range of operational improvement systems, enabling manufacturing teams to gain greater control of downtime and get production back on track as quickly as possible to protect profit margins.


Combined with Idhammar OEE, the solution ensures the fastest response to downtime, whilst integrating with Idhammar MMS helps manufacturers achieve a balanced schedule of preventative and corrective maintenance that maximises equipment uptime, keeps assets in peak operating condition, and improves productivity.

From shopfloor to boardroom, Idhammar WCM promotes connectivity across all departments to increase productivity, quality and safety.
