Most continuous production processes operate for less than 30% of the time in ideal state which represents substantial losses in terms of production output, costs, asset performance, quality and impact on the environment. View Intro Video
The Time-in-State™ programme implements a solution that increases the percentage time in ideal state and thereby delivers higher operational efficiency and effectiveness. These improvements are observed as increases in production output, quality, and plant availability (i.e. Overall Equipment Effectiveness / OEE) and translate into multi-million dollar gains. These gains are delivered without changing the production process and / or equipment configuration. (Examples include production output increases of >18% and increases in energy efficiency by more than 7%.)
Time-in-State™ is applicable to petro-chemical, paper and pulp, food, mining and metals processing industry.
Most production plants operate at a sub-optimal state at least 60% of the time. This condition increases the operational risk exposure of the organisation. Breakdown of control will result in unpredictable, inefficient and unreliable production processes. By implication this conditions will result in an inability to meet production targets.
IME delivers services and solutions to the process and manufacturing industry. IME implements the Time-in-State Management programme which is structured to leverage existing infrastructure, knowledge and capability. The Time-in-State Management programme will generate substantial value if your operation is characterised by:
- Inability to consistently meet production targets
- Process instability and unpredictable performance
- Inexplicable variation in Key Performance Indicators
- Inability to meet availability and reliability targets
- Lack of detailed data analysis or root cause analysis.
An assessment of your production process or equipment will provide accurate and reliable quantification of the opportunities that exist.

IME offers a quick and effective implementation of the Time-in-State Management programme. This programme delivers capability to improve operational performance while developing people. Included in this service is a web-based platform that facilitates improved management of production assets. This is achieved by innovative visualisation of production process conditions.
