Accelerate Kaizen

Getting a new vehicle to market with unprecedented speed requires smart decisions, faster.

Increase speed to production, reduce cycle times, and minimize muda with a platform that accelerates Kaizen.

Continuously improved digital workflows

For many auto OEMs, the mechanism to collect, track, and manage data, workflows, and decisions remain stagnant.  Alleviate your people from decade-old spreadsheets and paper print outs with a platform built for continuously improved workflows. By upgrading the processes that surround your manufacturing, you extend the investments made in production equipment while respecting the time and expertise of your team members. Enabling you to:

  • Centrally track and gain insights on previously siloed data to make smart decisions, faster
  • Manage manual steps surrounding manufacturing, like engineering equipment processes
  • Fill the gaps between existing, or in-house built, software
  • Car manufacturing plant

    Quick Base enables 'The Toyota Way' excellence

    As expectations for vehicle launch timelines decrease, manufacturing methodologies like Toyota Production System (TPS) demand agile platforms that:

    Accelerate Kaizen  by automating and connecting programs like process workflows, checklist management, plant and vehicle compatibility assessments

    Respect team members with a platform that empowers anyone to solve a problem and create a workflow, without waiting for another team member or IS

    Drive real-time transparency and communication  between internal manufacturing teams, suppliers, and leadership to enable virtual feedback from the gemba and simultaneous engineering eliminating costly downstream changes or errors

    We want to systematically go over every step in our processes — from R&D to manufacturing, sales and servicing — in order to raise the combat effectiveness of our business as a whole.
