Highly manual assemblies and high product variability make furniture manufacturing a challenge.
Furniture manufacturing face the typical challenges of discrete manufacturing, and then some. From the kitting of parts to their assembly and shipping, there are multiple opportunities for human error to impact quality. Traditional paper-based processes fall short, especially as the demand for highly customized furniture drives furniture makers towards a high variability, low volume production environment. As the industry becomes more competitive, furniture makers need to embrace technology to stay ahead.
Human error impacts quality
Paper-based processes are inadequate for high-variability, low-volume production
Complex assembly, kitting, and shipping processes
Low visibility into operations
Tulip Manufacturing Apps simplify even the most complex assemblies, eliminating errors and improving productivity.
Tulip is a no-code manufacturing app platform that enables manufacturing engineers to build apps that guide complex operations, eliminate human error, and collect real-time data. Tulip apps can help guide operators through complex assembly processes to enable high customization, leverage IoT to bring quality in-line, and increase the speed of new product introductions through faster training.
