O3 Printing & Folding Carton Vertical


Obeikan Folding Carton (OFC) lacked visibility into
operations and assets. They were unable to identify
challenges in real time, resulting in overall equipment
effectiveness (OEE) losses, multiple shifts and poor
capacity planning.

OFC struggled to adapt to changes in schedules and
products, and were unable to manage rapid change
overs to support manufacturing.
In addition, excessive operator manual data entry
impacted productivity.


ODS reviewed the current set- up
at OFC which encompassed several
systems & installed ODS O3 Smart

its suite of Digital Lean Apps to
enable the following functions

  • Provide accurate status of ongoing manufacturing operations.
  • Monitor and control asset use to minimize operating costs .
  • Integrate existing systems and accommodate heterogeneous systems .
  • Improve planning and forecast inventory .
  • Provide real time operational intelligence with end-to-end
    traceability and origin .
  • Refine and digitize unnecessary use of resources:

indicators (KPI’s) from vision to results

Meeting management:
Scorecards & Action tracker

Evaluate effectiveness
