APS Group – United Kingdom



Established in the United Kingdom in the early 1960’s, APS group is a marketing solution provider. As part of its commitment to responsible business, APS is embarking on a Lean Manufacturing journey and sought a solution to measure and improve the efficiency of its existing manufacturing equipment.


With TrakSYS™, APS was able to establish OEE as the key productivity improvement metric for their printing presses. Operators were presented with real-time data on the shop floor, giving them the tools to instantly impact production and efficiency.


With TrakSYS™, APS:


  • Achieved 22% improvement in OEE in the first four months
  • Reduced wasteful activities down to just 8.4% freeing up additional production time
  • Met the established lean manufacturing goals, with quality and performance issues reviewed against suppliers of raw materials.
