The Asset Enhancement Programme may be implemented at any point of the life span of the production plant. In most cases, most partners have already successfully implemented AUP. Some new customers, however, come on board when their plants are producing at healthy levels of utilisation.
The difference is AEP enhances the already optimised utilisation of the plant. Focusing on the principle of ‘de-bottling’, Fortrec applies its engineering expertise to expand the bottlenecks that we identify through plant audits. Past experience has proven that such de-bottling and plugging of wastages can reduce production costs and boost efficiencies by at least 20%.
One such case includes a production plant in India that could not export their product because of limitations in their export facilities. Fortrec transported their product 3,000 km from East to West coast and helped de-bottle the plant.
