CASE STUDY KALEESUWARI
Based in India, Kaleesuwari operates six plants, manufacturing and packaging refined edible oils to be sold through
retail channels. They export to the following countries: Oman, UAE, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Tanzania, Malaysia, Seychelles,Myanmar, Kuwait, Qatar, and the U.S.
DEFINITION OF PROBLEM
Edible oil is a highly competitive market. Delivering health and wellness through their superior products, Kaleesuwari is a company that prides itself on its responsiveness to customer requirements. However, they were unable to receive real-time data from the 24 line machines operating in their plant, and therefore no accurate data was being collected on production output. They were also experiencing significant challenges around workforce schedule monitoring, unable to match worker shift hours with production. The company previously tried to solve these issues by employing additional labor to manually count the production for each machine, but this led to many human errors– it was essentially guesswork on bag orders, with a great deal of raw materials being wasted.
