Enabling a Digital Workforce
The vast majority of manufacturing tasks (72%) are performed by People. However, Industry 4.0 solutions are often not focused on People.
Provisur Technologies, a global leader in the food processing equipment manufacturing market, recognized this issue. Since its inception in 2009, Provisur has expanded its portfolio of leading brands to serve its global customer base with a broad range of value-added equipment and a full line of solutions.
Provisur’s assembly team was utilizing significant multi-page paper process document to assemble food processing equipment. During the assembly, each process needs to be dated and initialed by multiple workers. Additionally, depending on the process, accurate data needs to input, and information logged within the process document. By having this document and process paper-based, everything had to be handwritten, which was time consuming and data could not be accumulated to understand timing, common activities between different machine builds and it was difficult to retrieve information.
As technology advances, the demands on People have inevitably grown. Provisur understood this challenge and brought in Notiphy to help digitize its workflow to enable assemblers to perform more efficiently. Notiphy used its flexible Process Management and Communication Platform to upload Provisur’s machine building process documents. Provisur’s assembly workers began to utilize the process documents through Notiphy’s tablets and their own computers.
Notiphy allowed Provisur’s assemblers to perform their jobs faster and more efficiently, allowing them to one-click to date and initial completed work and easily check off and type in necessary inputs. Provisur was able to accumulate data to make better business decisions. This was one of Notiphy’s initial deployments and Notiphy will continue to work with Provisur to automate and digitize more of their processes so they will no longer need to use paper documents.
