Automotive OEM – GDS was commissioned by a large Automotive supply manufacturer to develop a process by which the production processes and machine automation systems could absorb a global BOM change from US measure to the Metric system. This change needed to occur in real-time without production disruption. And required integration with the BOM system present in SAP.
Result: GDS assessed the task, evaluated workflow, and designed a process by which WIP on the shop floor would maintain a cohesive flow as each item moved through the production process. GDS deployed this process to 165 automated machines in under 15 minutes while maintaining uptime, and integration to all shop floor systems.
