Reliable and visible real-time data enables improvements to down-time, change-overs & OEE

Kongsberg Automotive provides world-class products to the global vehicle industry. The products enhance the driving experience, making it safer, more comfortable and sustainable.

"Prior to its involvement with Gemba Solutions, the business was collecting OEE data via a manual system. This was time-consuming and generated data with errors."

(Plant Manager - Normanton)

The company is headquartered in Kongsberg, Norway, and has 32 production facilities worldwide. The product portfolio includes seat comfort systems, driver and motion-control systems, fluid assemblies and industrial driver interface products developed for global vehicle manufacturers. Kongsberg’s facility in Normanton, UK, produces fluid transfer systems. It has faced huge price increases for key raw materials over the past few years, and this has driven a need to step up the CI (Continuous Improvement) culture within the business to support the aim of reducing total manufacturing costs.
