How EnterpriseIQ can revolutionize your business
For over eight years, Donnelly managed operations using an OS/2 operating system and various software packages. Production scheduling was done manually using a magnetic board, a process Donnelly had perfected to accommodate its high level of mold change overs and the many related support activities. Yet, while Donnelly achieved much success while using the OS/2 platform and manual scheduling, the company’s growth eventually began outpacing the system’s capacity.
With EnterpriseIQ in place, Donnelly has seen improvements in every aspect of its business. RealTime Machine Monitoring allows shop floor supervisors to access production data as it occurs from any computer in the plant, whereas they used to spend time walking the shop floor to check presses. Donnelly has also eliminated excess data entry and saved numerous hours of overtime because team leaders and supervisors no longer have to work long beyond their shifts to input data, something that consumed many hours of overtime each day.
