First Electronics had a challenge with visibility in its production line. Jobs were being tracked manually in the organization. And once a job went into the production line and through the 15 process areas, there was very little, to no visibility, in regards to its location and status. This was creating major problems for management and the customer support team.
Connecting the items that flow through the production line (e.g., product number, job number, PO, customer and other key manufacturing details) with a digital dashboard showing jobs in stages of production is a critical step in developing a modern manufacturing process. It’s this real-time data about the products and materials on the manufacturing floor that enable informed business decisions for a competitive edge.
