Recently, we told the story of how Opie Manufacturing Group streamlined their processes by embracing IoT and creating a Industry 4.0-worthy smart factory.
Originally, Opie Group had manual machines that had to be managed, along with their associated materials. The materials management component alone could take up to four hours, which was a real bottleneck in their manufacturing processes.
Alongside this, Opie also had a severe lack of visibility of the production process and job status, as well as a total lack of visibility of key statistics to run production efficiently.
However, with the help of TRUMPF machinery and software and a new integrated CRM system, Opie managed to remedy each of the problem areas outlined above, and are now proud owners of an automated end-to-end solution across the business from front office to shop floor.
In the below infographic we explore the tools Opie used to transform their business.
