The Challenge

The shop floor comprises supervisors and operators. Supervisors have to schedule job cards for the operators. They should also measure their performances at the end of the day. This was performed manually by the client.

The process was time consuming, lacked accuracy which impacted their overall productivity and efficiency.

The Approach

Based on the understanding we had on the process and business challenge, we suggested shop floor digitization solution to the client. The client was impressed and insisted on implementing the solution on their premises.

Our Solution

The solution simplified the laborious manual process of assigning job cards to the operators on a day-to-day basis. The plant supervisors were able to assign tasks with a touch of button and the operators were able to update their job details, factors impacting efficiency by the end of the day without breaking a sweat. The shop floor digitization solution reduced the time and cost involved in the process and made the process completely paperless.

Key Results

Dinamalar is the third largest Tamil daily newspaper by circulation (Over 900,000), printed from across 10 cities. With over 100 photographers spread across the country, they had a robust capability to supplement news with images. To sustain their competitive edge in a cut throat market, they created an exclusive, secure portal for photographers to upload their images. But, in the age of the mobile and ‘breaking news’ it was not enough.

Design

The Result
