Australian Craft brewer packaging efficiency report published.

OFS, an Australian software company which supports manufacturing effectiveness, recently released new data that shows how Australian craft brewers are faring in efficiency across their packaging lines. According to the data – brewers fare well on speed and waste management (98.6% and 99.7%) but are only filling cans and bottles 54% of the time (a low use of equipment capacity). In addition, for every 1000 beers made, over 3 minutes is lost to unplanned downtime and on average brewers are unable to run their production line for more than 12min without stopping.
