How automotive seating manufacturer Tesca increased its cutting capacity with Algopex™

Watch the recording of our annual digital event to find out how this renowned company Tesca achieved operational excellence with the help of Lectra’s new value-added, data-driven services package for continuous improvement!

From early adopter to advocate of Algopex™

The company was facing two main challenges: they needed to adopt more eco-friendly operating practices to reduce their carbon footprint, and also manage two manufacturing plants in different countries, one in Morocco and Tunisia. They wanted to find a way to monitor the performance of each plant, identify areas for improvement, and implement change remotely. Thanks to Algopex, Lectra’s value-added services package, they were able to increase their raw material savings by 3.5% and their production capacity by 2% within six months via real-time KPI-monitoring, -tracking and -benchmarking.
