We certainly didn’t consider this an exercise in volume, or collecting business cards.
So, what happened?
We completed twice as many packaging performance assessments as we thought we could in three days, and identified millions in waste and new revenue for just about everybody we worked with in the booth.
The results of the assessments blew us away.
By collaborating with a select group of serious packaging professionals who came to Pack Expo to work, we could spend our days benchmarking their packaging operation and digging into how automation could improve performance.
Together, we walked through key questions like:
6. Could more automation affect overall equipment effectiveness (OEE)?
To top that off, our existing automation supplier customers at Pack Expo in other booths were pitching SITEFLO as a way to complete on-site performance improvement projects, to complete the aforementioned assessments with their own customers.
We got very busy, very quickly, with some of the best customers in the world.
Making the right automation choices is still difficult, but, making those choices with intelligence is what’s differentiating the good automation suppliers from the great.
