Production Assistant solution featured on national television report
On May 22nd the Canadian national television network Ici-Radio-Canada has presented a report on the hiring challenges faced by the manufacturing industry. In this documentary one of WEB-CAB customers, Karl Mathurin, has been interviewed and explained how they overcame this issue by implementing the industry 4.0 software, Production Assistant.
This software which is tied to lean manufacturing principles has allowed Armoires Mathurin not only to double its production capacity, but it also gave them the flexibility to have less experienced employees at the assembly station. The loss of a highly experienced employee in charge of assembly had seriously affected their production capacity and with the severe labour shortage faced by the Canadian manufacturing industry it was almost impossible to find another employee with the same level of experience. Mathurin then turned to WEB-CAB to implement the Production Assistant solution with the results stated above!
One of the key features of Production Assistant that truly helped Armoires Mathurin is the revolutionized sorting and assembling process. Relying less on the humans, this solution plans each and every tasks to ensure the process is as lean and effective as it can be. No more waiting for damaged parts to be redone or walking around the plant to find a lost part. This solution tacks parts and follows them from sales to shipping.
