Why switch to digital visual management for ARaymond? The objective is to

  • Boost exchanges between managers and operators during daily meetings
  • Be more efficient by avoiding the time lost by managers to print and display
  • Facilitate feedback from operators: problems, comments, continuous improvement
  • Provide more useful information by connecting supervision software to screens (real-time indicators)

 

 

“It’s not a revolution to switch to digital visual management, it’s an improvement since we respect the same fundamentals of animation”

Clément Cailly, ATOMS Coordinator

Goals

ARaymond designs and manufactures fastening and assembly systems for the automotive industry, parts made of metal, plastic or both, and markets them to the world’s leading automotive manufacturers and suppliers. Goals :

  • Boost exchanges between managers and operators during daily meetings
  • Be more efficient by avoiding the time lost by managers to print and display
  • Facilitate feedback from operators: problems, comments, continuous improvement
  • Provide more useful information by connecting supervision software to screens (real-time indicators)

Challenges

The challenge before going digital is to already have a “physical” communication routine for at least 4 months, with 4 concepts in place (Team empowerment, Waste hunting, Continuous improvement, Standards):

đŸĄȘ This makes it easier and faster to structure content.

Then simply digitize, with the advantage of more frequent update of information

Solutions

The key success factors for the implementation of digitalization are:

    • Involve the teams to clearly identify the needs.
      Example: refreshing data, optimizing space in the workshop
    • Accompany the people who update the information
    • Provide interfaces with other applications used

Results

Concrete benefits are already visible:

  • A useful solution :
    Everything is gathered on the same screen
    Better visualization by operators, some will consult independently
    All indicators are always up to date
  • More convivial daily meetings, more in touch with the operators
  • As a manager, it helps with the daily animation (mood of the day for example)
