Experiences of Royal Mosa: 50% reduction in downtime


Mosa is an innovative tile manufacturer with sales offices around the globe. Mosa started using real-time OEE calculations to address the need of operators to save time. Insight into the cause and effect of downtimes fueled the need for focused improving. 

In 2014 we started working with Cierpa OEE. The Lean Support software could be connected to the existing sensors and PLCs immediately. We could use our existing data streams and existing IT infrastructure. This lead to a 50 % decrease in downtime.


  • 50% reduction in downtime during turnaround
  • A clear view on occurrence and duration of downtime instances
  • A clear view on when a specific machine is the bottleneck
  • Added value: insight in duration and number of short stops

Production of expansion tanks at Flamco: up to 50 % reduction in maintenance
Flamco is the largest supplier of expansion tanks and mounting materials for expansion tanks. Flamco started using Cierpa OEE Cockpit in 2008, because manual measurements didn’t offer an exact and clear insight into the downtime of the machines. Cierpa offered the OEE calculations in real-time.

Results for Philips Lighting: reduced costs and increased sales
Philips is the global leader in the production of starters for fluorescent tube lights. Philips wanted to replace and automate the current measurement system, which was paper-based and used Access for storage, with a system that was less error-prone and time-consuming. A job ad in BN De Stem led us to Cierpa OEE.

Teams that discuss their improvements on a weekly bases
Our company already went through an improvement process when we started using Cierpa Kaizen. Our employees had many ideas on improvement, but it wasn’t always clear what the added value of those ideas would be. As a result many ideas received too little follow-up.
