POWER TOOL STREAMLINES PRODUCTION
Automation and standardization of whiteboard meetings - without sacrificing interaction and ownership
Across national borders, factories, and producing units, daily whiteboard meetings are a key task for employees who work in the machinery area of one of Denmark's very large production companies. At the meetings, each individual team ensures that there is control over customer focus, safety, quality, delivery, costs and, not least, employee motivation in their part of the overall production.
The more efficient and streamlined production is, the better the result for the company - it almost goes without saying. Therefore, it was obvious to switch from manual log of these whiteboard meetings to a digital setup, where each individual manager and employee can easily create a comprehensive overview of their part of the production. And where deviations are quickly detected, thereby minimizing the risk of production stoppages and loss of efficiency.
"We wanted better control over the standardization of our reports and data input, so we could make better data-driven decisions through the various layers of the organization," says the company's Senior Manager, who has been responsible for the project.
And the Senior Manager continues that they wanted to "automate and standardize data input, without compromising the interaction and ownership of data on the whiteboards. (…) And then it should be possible to add data manually in a structured way in places where a plant did not yet have access to a standard data source.” exacto has helped solve this important task, which is also part of the company's journey towards a paperless production.
