The client is a leading manufacturing company in Japan that suffered from a lack of a centralized workflow management system. At the time, the process of receiving and fulfilling orders for parts at the molding factory relied on manual handling. Orders from customers were received as Excel files and then uploaded to a standalone software for workflow status and molding process forms. This method was affected by inefficiencies, errors, lack of transparency, real-time monitoring, and inter-departmental coordination.
This case study delved into a transformative initiative to revolutionize clients' parts manufacturing process. By introducing a comprehensive workflow management solution, the objective was to untangle the knots of inefficiency and enhance operational efficacy.
The ultimate objectives were efficiency, significant cost reduction, improved inter-departmental cooperation, real-time visibility, and data-driven decision-making capabilities. This case study promised invaluable insights into how technology could reshape manufacturing workflows.
