New Shift Model Increases Efficiency and Cuts Costs
As part of ongoing efficiency optimization strategy, Fendt’s Production Manager in Marktoberdorf, Germany, initiated a review of its shift organization. During early 2008, the new system began testing, and within six months, the benefits became clear. Capacity improved by over 12 percent, and with the introduction of new machine technology, significant cost savings have been achieved.
"The engineering and technical teams worked together on this project, and we are absolutely delighted with the results. Not only have we increased production capacity and reduced costs, but the new model has proved easier for all the shift workers – so there are benefits all around."
