Process consultancy contract contains defined number of visits during which a Marel process consultant will audit a predefined situation/case of a customer’s production process. Before the visit an intake is executed in order to define the visit objectives and conduct optimal preparation. The audit can contain the following steps:
- Kick-off meeting to confirm on-visit tasks and decide actions (meeting with management)
- Preconditions check
a. A visual check of Marel equipment performance during production
b. Check technical logbooks and (preventive) maintenance history
c. A process environment check (check all external parameters that influence the process (e.g. quality of incoming products/raw material, atmosphere, personnel, operator skills, infrastructure, etc.)
- Process analysis
Confirm current performance baseline.
Use process-analysis tools such as Innova or similar (KPIs, process method, process flow, process settings and process report information) to determine the status of the total process performance.
- Report recommendations for increasing performance and/or process stability.
Optional implementation/action plan: implement/provide advice on the recommendations, testing and monitoring of the process changes.
- Wrap-up meeting to conclude the visit
