Proseat is synonymous with innovative seat foam, interior parts and light weight solutions for the automotive industry with plants in five European countries. To help measure the manufacture's effectivity, various data sets are collected about each production line. Putting all of the data together as one report allows to see all the data in context and have control over the production performance.
The client's employee had to manually fill in reports in Excel by copy-pasting numbers from two internal systems for two kinds of reports.
First, the daily production report monitors the volume of pieces on the production lines.
The number of manufactured pieces is monitored to ensure the correct and smooth operation of the line, and to better orientate the stock status.
Second report tracks the downtime of the production lines.
For various reasons, production lines can stop compared to the original plan, and the management resolves these downtime for optimization and proper utilization of the line.
Clients needed to automate filling up the reports for each of the shift and also monthly and yearly report.
Robot ICT delievered two robotic processes
that are now taking care about filling up all the necessary reports.
Both of them are running 3 times a day (after each shift).
On top of daily reports we also delivered another processes for monthly and yearly reports.
All the boring reports are now performed automatically and our client employees don't have to spend time on it and can focus on more challenging and intelectual tasks.
Employees can now focus on more intellectual tasks
Correct! There is a bit of confusion in the naming of the used technology. RPA stands for Robotic Process Automation. However the robots here are not physical. We rather call them "software bots", they are just computer programs. They have several things in common with the physical robots. Their purpose is the same: To replicate actions of a human operator.
Anything that includes humans repetitive work on a computer. This can be related to inventory management, orders, delivery notes, invoicing or even HR duties.
