Case study I: Comparing the performance of different factories by Factory Activity Level

Forseenable economic situations in 2022?

Several big economics impacts hit the manufacturing industries in a harsh way causing insufficient orders and unstable supplies.

In the world of manufacturing industries, the questions on catching up with the dynamic information (e.g. orders and manufacturing capacity) become even more crucial.

Fygen offers these kinds of quantitative data: We monitor real-time factory activity, i.e. the performance of any manufacturing factories in the world.

Real-world examples

Let’s take two factories in the energy sector (power transmission & distribution) located in the US as an example, comparing in the same period (03.01.2022 vs. 24.03.2022). The analysis was done on the basis on Fygen’s Factory Activity Monitoring.

Pa Transformers Technology

Figure 1. Factory Activity Level of Pa Transformers Technology over time.

From Figure 1, our activity monitor shows that Pa Transformers Technology (“Pa Transformers”) has experienced a very sharp drop (-40%) from the beginning of 2022 until now.

Prolec GE Goldsboro factory

Figure 2. Factory Activity Level of Prolec GE Goldsboro factory (Former SPX Transformers) over time.

On the other hand (Figure 2), its direct competitor Prolec GE Transformer Solution Goldsboro factory (former SPX Transformer Solution; acquired by Prolec GE in 2021) maintains a stable activity level in the same period.

Table 1. % change of Factory Activity Level of the two power transformer factories.

Our novel factory activity index reflects the workforce inside the factory, where it is very sensitive to shifts, orders, and production and more. In addition, we are tracking factory-related traffic patterns.

To closely track its real-time development, we offer an exclusive monitoring service on the power transformers market.

Fygen.com declares that, despite aiming to deliver the most accurate and reliable data, it cannot be excluded that observations in the data might be caused or influenced by other external factors, and hence any inaccuracy.

Fygen.com is the world’s leading data provider for factory observation. It helps its clients to monitor utilization rates and activity levels of potentially more than 3 million industrial sites globally.
