Every year we produce about 8.000 unique parts in 20.000 unique production orders. This comes down to 85.000 individual machining operations every year. In order to maintain a consistent level of high quality output, with such a variable product mix, we define all part structures with each individual machining step in our ERP database.
Together with our customer, our technicians define the optimal sequence of machining steps and the optimal division of the final assembly in individual single parts. Where specific work order instructions are required, the instructions are linked to the individual machining steps in our database. With the resulting part structure data set, production orders a generated automatically. After release for manufacturing, the progress of each step of a production order is then registered in our database.
Our digital quality call system comes into effect in the case an error is caused during production. If an operator cannot complete a production step, a quality call is generated and linked to the work order. Corrective and preventive actions will be taken, and while the quality call is unresolved, planning can see what is causing a delay and which employee is responsible for a resolution.
Our way of working is designed to contribute to an iterative process of continuous improvement. Increasing efficiency, reliability and quality levels in our production process.
