Increase production capacity and built-to-order efficiency
With the constant acceleration of production flows, finding opportunities to remove friction is crucial for keeping up with demand. Capture real-time data to get real-time visibility and insights to continually improve operations. Leverage adaptability to improve systems and respond quickly to changes such as consumer demands and supply chain issues.
Upskill the next generation of makers
Human-centric systems allow you to transfer the heritage of your brand to the next generation by giving new operators “digital mentors” to ease the process of developing craftsmanship. Empower a tech-savvy generation of workers with digital systems that match the growing level of innovation and technicality present in luxury goods manufacturing.
Prevent costly defects and material escapes
Luxury goods are known for premium and rare materials, customized orders, and high-quality craftsmanship, and quality rework and lost materials are expensive. Identify and track quality defects to find and remediate issues sooner. Track materials and products to prevent material escapes.
Augment makers with digital guidance and operator training
Error-proof and streamline complex tasks with visual instructions rich with images, videos, GIFs, or CAD models. Capture data non-intrusively as users complete their work and use it for production visibility, tracking, and traceability.
Seamless data capture
Embed connections to screwdrivers, scales, specialized tools, devices, sensors, and cameras into apps in minutes.
Integrate with the systems – ERP, MES, PDM/PLM – and extend relevant info to the shop floor with a single interface.
Empower the frontline engineers to rapidly and safely update work instructions
Ensure traceability and compliance through digital history records
Document every step of production from reception through assembly, quality control and inspection. Track important manufacturing info, such as raw materials and equipment used, procedures followed and quality records. Link information to lots and serial numbers, including products or components supplied by vendors or subcontractors.
Material weight accuracy
Protect against loss by incorporating digital scales into operator workflows to ensure all precious materials are accounted for.
Automatically track serial numbers with computer vision, RFID, trackers, etc. Prevent escapes, crossed orders, and unnecessary scrap with poka yoke.
Access a complete history record of the product including materials and digital signatures. Be audit-ready.
Enhance quality control with guidance, inspections, and tracking
Ensure proper techniques, such as screwdriver torque, are applied and documented to prevent quality issues. Incorporate inspection steps to identify and resolve defects quickly. Contain quality events quickly with end-to-end traceability and root cause analysis.
Display the right information and instructions for built-to-order products and prevent costly mix-ups.
Catch the defects operators can miss with visual inspection powered by machine learning.
Process data capture
Connect to specialized tools, screwdrivers, scales, and more to capture data for quality investigations.
