Smarter cars need a smarter factory.
Building the cars of the future is a challenge.
Consumer demand for built-to-order options complicates on- and off-line work sequencing. Short product cycles are getting shorter, meaning automotive manufacturers are expected to do more with less time. And with new technologies increasingly common in cars and trucks, compliance is as important as ever. Traceability down to the SKU is essential. Existing systems aren’t flexible enough to support the high-mix, built-to-order factory, and paper-based processes hinder the collection of real-time data.
Rapid product cycles with costly NPI cycles
Multiple discrete assemblies
High-mix driven by built-to-order
Steep standards for regulation and compliance
Tulip’s no-code platform streamlines even the most complex work sequences.
Tulip apps support build-to-order and customized manufacturing, helping engineers optimize mixed assemblies. Tulip’s Enterprise deployment integrates into ERPs and MESs, and IoT enabled devices guarantee compliance from day one.
Real-time data from people and machines
Measure and improve operator productivity through continuous time studies and increase your overall process effectiveness with integrated machine monitoring.
Training time cut from months to weeks
By using IoT-connected work instructions apps, Techniplas standardized employee cycle times and eliminated the need for shadowing during training. As a result, they reduced training times on assembly processes from 3-5 months to 2 weeks.
