Electronics Manufacturer

Tulip helped a leading contract manufacturer make their complex assembly processes more efficient.

The Challenge

Tulip teamed up with a leading global contract manufacturer to guide complex electronics assembly. Operators on their 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. The manufacturer needed to maintain the highest quality and efficiency standards despite a high variety of assembly requirements. The 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.

The Results

50% increase in throughput

Using Tulip’s platform, this manufacturer created apps that helped guide operators through complex assembly processes in a high mix environment, with over 1500 unique assemblies per year.

60% reduction in manual assembly-related quality issues

The data gathered from the shop floor was continuously analyzed with Tulip’s analytics engine-visualizing KPIs through dashboards that front-line engineers tailored to meet their unique needs. Guiding, tracking, and analyzing both operator and machine data in real-time make root cause analysis and continuous process improvement easy despite low volume production runs.

10% increase in production yield

Tulip allowed process engineers to take an agile approach to their processes, integrating feedback from the production line without knowing how to code.
