Weldwood of Canada

The AVEVA solution has become a valuable tool for Weldwood because it has helped the company enhance productivity through more efficient maintenance activities.

Weldwood of Canada

Weldwood’s Williams Lake plywood plant implements Enterprise Asset Management solution to update existing management system and help enhance both maintenance and production.

Goals

  • Enhance production efficiency with new computerized maintenance management system

Challenges

  • Outdated management system did not integrate the maintenance functions with plant purchasing systems, which required larger inventories of spares to be on hand

Results

  • Diverse operations in both type and geography are now tied together
  • Enhanced productivity through more efficient maintenance activities, helping to produce nearly 230 million square-feet of plywood each year
  • Achieved ISO 14001 certification at Williams Lake

"Many spare parts are no longer inventoried, but are simply ordered when a repair is scheduled and its work order is cut. This is a new capability that we gained, since the new system combines both work scheduling and parts purchasing." ¬– Hank Dickey, Maintenance Superintendent
