Poor visibility and control on the shop floor largely stem from a paper-based world. When you are living in a paper-based manufacturing environment, having to sort through a mountain of paperwork, either through the manufacturing process or at the end, does not lend itself to cost effectiveness or lean principals. This visibility often gets lost throughout the paper process. In environments where we have an electronic system, still too often all of the pieces of information are lost in disparate electronic systems. You are still having to dedicate resources to compile this information and give it the proper visibility and controls for the shop floor, and it is too time consuming and inefficient.
Solumina is a totally integrated product; therefore, every piece of information that happens on the shop floor is immediately visible. Solumina tracks absolutely everything that is happening in real time and assists with visibility to multiple roles in your environment from manufacturing engineers who need to know any immediate issues that are arising on the shop floor to your senior leadership that want to see the day-to-day activities that are occurring and be able to address any issues that are arising. Having all that information, from your quality data collections to your electronic signatures to any delivery schedules, in one complete system gives you total visibility directly at your fingertips.
At the end of the day, in order to compete in today’s digital manufacturing revolution, companies must find a solution to integrate all interfaces into one digital thread. Download our eBook to learn how Solumina can make this a reality.
