For many auto OEMs, the mechanism to collect, track, and manage data, workflows, and decisions remain stagnant. Resulting in slow, manual pen and paper processes or in-house built solutions to resolve issues or enact change.
Modernization in cloud technology, like citizen development, has liberated data from corporate systems. Enabling focused improvement initiatives to be deployed real-time.
How? Citizen development platforms, endorsed by IT, get data in the hands of teams that know what to do with the data. Empowering each person to build solutions, workflows, reports or dashboards that solve front-line business problems without specialized technology or coding experience.
As expectations for cost reduction increase and vehicle launch timelines decrease, manufacturing plants demand agile platforms that empower every employee to quickly solve problems. With the Quick Base platform, teams across each plant can build solutions without waiting in an IT backlog, to:
• Drive cost savings from purchasing efficiencies
• Protect program timing with key milestones tracking centralized siloed data for real-time initiative reporting
• Pareto out work to highlight highest impact activities
Principal Manufacturing Solutions Consultant, Peter Rifken, reviews value process mapping as a high-value, detailed approach to exposing and removing waste in an organization.
Peter Rifken walks through the step-by-step process to turn a static spreadsheet into a mobile, work order tracking solution on the Quick Base platform, no coding required.
