Otsuka Chemical Co., Ltd. CMMS solution


Solution Overview

 Enhanced maintenance cycles are achieved through eServ utilization, and transformation from reactive maintenance to preventive maintenance is realized.
 Using the cloud system eServ, information can be shared both inside and outside the company, thereby promoting maintenance communication.
 Leveraging data accumulated in eServ to improve "loss of production opportunities," taking on the challenge of achieving a new target of 70% year-on-year


Introduction Background

Otsuka Chemical's factory facilities were installed with 15 plants at the Tokushima Factory, two at the Matsushige Factory, and five at the Naruto Factory, with each plant having its own facility management.
"Are production weights as planned" and "are production times as planned?" developing an original index of "loss of production opportunities" which calculates the monetary value for the impact of equipment based on weight and time, in order to numerically figure out it using a common index.
In selecting the system we considered the facility maintenance systems of five companies and only the cloud system eServ of Yokogawa Solutions met the requirements of a user-friendly system that is visually superior and intuitively operable even at the site, being equipped with all required functions as well as utilizing iPad and QR-codes.


Introduction Effect

The introduction of eServ has resulted in a centralized system of facility information. The reason for the loss of production opportunities has become clear, and it has become possible for all members to follow up the progress of the measures.
In addition, the use of smart devices such as iPads for cloud systems has made it easy to record and confirm the status of failures, repairs, and replacement of components at the site.
In addition, the dashboard function makes it easy to perform various analyses and graphing. As a result, a cycle of strengthening maintenance has begun by repeatedly checking the progress and effect of improvements.
