William Grant & Sons

Enabling efficiency improvements through real-time data

The problem

Staff at Glenfiddich Distillery, owned by William Grant & Sons, were stuck maintaining a tiresome approach manually logging data on paper before entering it onto a spreadsheet the following morning. By the time it was analysed, the data was already at least 24 hours out of date.

The solution

Gemba’s software was implemented in the cask filling and digorging area in the Glenfiddich Distillery to highlight inefficiencies. Bottlenecks were able to be identified and supervisors were able to focus more experienced staff in that area.

The results

Through giving the William Grant & Sons’ team visibility of how they were performing in real-time against the standards, it helped secure 15% improvements in efficiency.
