Human Error is More Common Cause of Unplanned Downtime in Manufacturing Than Any Other Sector, According to New Research
User error is a more common cause of unplanned downtime in the manufacturing sector than almost any other sector, according to a new Vanson Bourne global study, sponsored by ServiceMax from GE Digital, the leading provider of field service management solutions. Unplanned downtime triggered by user error is 23% compared to as low as 9% in other sectors.
The new study, “After The Fall: Cost, Causes and Consequences of Unplanned Downtime ,” surveyed more than 100 manufacturers globally at the field service and IT decision maker level in the UK, US, France and Germany. The research also surveyed around 350 companies in other sectors globally across the medical, oil and gas, energy and utilities, telecoms, distribution, logistics and transport sectors, among others.
“It’s perhaps not surprising that the manufacturing sector has higher levels of human error given the breadth of machinery and equipment that requires maintenance and intervention by service engineers and technicians,” said Mark Homer, Vice President Global Customer Transformation for ServiceMax. “Whilst some manufacturers have started to digitize their service offerings with automated field service management that can trigger remedial action or intervention before a failure or outage takes place, large parts of the manufacturing sector have yet to put such systems in place. The knock-on effect of these episodes of unplanned downtime have obvious repercussions on OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) levels for manufacturing businesses.”
- 48% of respondents from the manufacturing sector admit there is considerable room for improvement when it comes to proactively preventing problems with assets for their organisation.
- This proportion is only larger (55%) in the telecoms sector.
- Across all sectors, 82% of companies have experienced at least one unplanned downtime outage over the past three years, with the average number of outages being two.
- The study revealed high levels of asset estate ignorance across organisations in all sectors, with 70% of companies or more, lacking full awareness of when equipment is due for maintenance, upgrade or replacement.

CT-P13 (biosimilar infliximab) is comparable to reference infliximab and adalimumab in highly anticipated real-world study17.2.2018 11:00 | Tiedote
Twelve-month data from the Personalised Anti-TNF therapy in Crohn’s disease Study (PANTS) was presented at the 13th Congress of the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation (ECCO). The results indicate that the clinical effectiveness, safety and immunogenicity of Celltrion Healthcare’s CT-P13 (biosimilar infliximab) in patients with Crohn’s disease (CD) is comparable to those treated with reference infliximab as well as those treated with adalimumab.1 The UK-wide, three-year prospective observational study investigated primary non-response (PNR), loss of response (LOR) and adverse drug reactions (ADR) to infliximab (reference infliximab and CT-P13) and adalimumab in 1610 CD patients. The data show comparable efficacy between CT-P13, reference infliximab and adalimumab in relation to PNR, LOR and ADR rates. In addition, at week 54, the remission rate was 39.7%, 39.0% and 32.7% for reference infliximab, CT-P13 and adalimumab treated patients, respectively.1 The PANTS study investigates

Another Victory for SPI in Stolichnaya Trademark Dispute16.2.2018 10:01 | Tiedote
On February 5, 2018, in Linz, SPI Group achieved yet another significant legal victory in its long-running dispute with Russian state-owned entity Federal Treasury Enterprise Sojuzplodoimport (FKP or FTE) over the ownership of SPI Group’s Stolichnaya and Moskovskaya trademarks. The Appellate Court of Linz ruled in favour of SPI Group, confirming their ownership of both trademarks in Austria. In its decision, the Austrian Appellate Court held that the Dutch interim judgments as well as the later Dutch judgments do not have any binding effect on the Austrian proceedings. The Austrian Court also: rejected the Dutch Courts’ approach that an invalidity of the Russian privatization would not be subject to any limitation period; noted that the approach used by the Dutch Courts’ ignores the fact that the privatization had for many years been considered by all persons involved, including the Russian State, as legal and had been implemented and “lived” as such, until the change of political powe
