The "DECISION4.0" project is the starting point for a rethinking of the production structure of the companies Tosti srl, Femto Engineering srl and AIRNIVOL S.p.A.
The three partner companies by virtue of past collaborations and the future development of new products, have decided to renew and review of the company's production processes. In fact, the project envisages a review of production processes according to the principles of Lean Manufacturing and the digitization of partner companies in a 4.0 perspective. In particular, Lean methodologies will be introduced and 4.0 technological solutions will be studied and designed regarding the network interconnection of machinery and interfacing with ERP, MES, SCADA, LIMS, MHS, corporate systems for the acquisition and management of process data.
This project will therefore allow to optimize the production processes in terms of: reduction of delivery times to the customer, increase in productivity by eliminating spechi, increase in product quality, increase in ease of programming, maintaining organizational flexibility, professionally growing one's own internal resources.
The activities envisaged in the project plan are as follows:
1. Design, implementation and formalization of tools and methodologies for the analysis of the corporate organizational structure and reorganization of management by processes and application of the "Lean thinking" principles
2. Study, design and development of 4.0 technologies aimed at the digitization of processes that will allow partner companies a complete and real mapping of their activities, so as to be able to intervene in time with corrective actions, to improve their performance in a timely manner. In this way it will be possible to act to improve coordination between the various business units, such as: making rational decisions on real-time data, updating objectives, reducing waste of time and resources, sharing information, setting up a mechanism for continuous improvement of company activities.
