There is often a lack of transparency and traceability of design changes on the shop floor level, as well as a lack of feedback of design errors, which can affect ongoing follow-up projects.
Late preparation of customer documentation and acceptance of changes also lead to peaks in workload.
One advantage is the creation of the overall documentation parallel to the production process and the resulting improved overview of necessary changes. In addition, a reduction of consequential errors can be achieved through better control of the change processes.
A targeted recording and modeling of the information in a superordinate system as well as the development of an application for direct communication of changes from the store floor to the design department helps to achieve a human-centered implementation strategy.
This technology is used in the sectors of special machine construction and contract manufacturing.
