Case study: Elekta

Medical Device company, Elekta, is pushing the boundaries of Precision Radiation therapies for cancer care. Since 2017, Elekta has implemented Critical Manufacturing’s modern MES across 3 sites in The Netherlands, UK and China.

Before MES, Elekta utilized a paper-based system for Device History Records, work instructions and manual checks for compliance. The MES was needed to support their strategic business priorities and gain specific improvements in quality, manufacturing lead times, supply chain performance, lean manufacturing, and employee engagement.

The modularity and scalability of Critical Manufacturing MES enabled Elekta to achieve rapid improvements and financial gains. Read this case study to learn how Elekta realized the following benefits and many more:

  • Process nearly 35% more manufacturing order lines per month with no increase in headcount
  • Save $85,000 in archiving costs to date with $850,000 expected over a 20-year period
  • Reduce the time needed to make an engineering change to a work instruction by 97%
