A.G Barr (Irn Bru) achieves AMIS Assessment 08 April 2019

A.G Barr’s Milton Keynes site was first assessed using the ‘AMIS Assessment’ in November 2016. An improvement plan was agreed and, following subsequent assessments in 2017 and 2018, the Milton Keynes site has achieved ‘world-class performance’ using MCP’s new AMIS Journey within a two-year period.

As part of a planned Continuous Improvement Programme and maintenance strategy, MCP were requested to support Asset Management and Maintenance Improvement across the site.

The AMIS Journey (Asset Maintenance Improvement System), was facilitated by MCP Consulting Group and used to measure A.G. Barr’s asset maintenance performance on a consistent basis against a worldwide benchmark of peer group companies.

MCP says that the results produced show that the site is well above the soft drinks sector average for all the assessed sections, including general maintenance, cost management, productivity, materials management and training & safety.

Production equipment maintenance standards are ‘world-class’, operators can raise work orders for faults directly onto a CMMS system and new fault tagging systems have been introduced, in addition to a rigorous root cause analysis process, MCP adds.

“A.G. Barr Milton Keynes has proved that by developing a maintenance strategy, with a focus on CI, supported by a team-based approach, organisations are able to achieve world-class performance which delivers significant savings and performance improvements – in record time,” MCP concludes.
