Tulip teamed up with Jabil, a leading global contract manufacturer, to guide complex electronics assembly. Operators on Jabil’s manufacturing line build over 40 different models of complex electronic assemblies, each with a unique combination of components.
Before Tulip, front-line engineers relied on paper-based work instructions and audit procedures to guide operators and identify process inefficiencies. Jabil needed to maintain the highest quality and efficiency standards despite a high variety of assembly requirements. Operators needed the right information available at the right time to ensure the correct components were included in each assembly. Additionally, non-value-add steps had to be identified and eliminated quickly.
