Naadi boost digital transformation, innovation, growth

The need to meet the evolving expectations of customers in the digital era is crucial for panel processing factories. A significant catalyst for this digital transformation is the shifting expectations of consumers in an increasingly interconnected world.

It is essential to recognize that digital transformation is not merely a destination but rather an ongoing journey toward innovation, growth, and competitive advantage. And although challenges may arise, the long-term benefits of embracing digitalization far outweigh any initial difficulties.

Optimisation cutting

Manual cutting led to numerous errors, heavily relying on the skill of the cutting operator. Tracking the completion of cutting via paper made it challenging to monitor which boards had been cut and which had’’t. Additionally, manually writing essential information on panels consumed a significant amount of time.

Naadi’s Cutsmart, a cloud-based optimizer and guided cutting system, is revolutionizing the cutting process. It seamlessly delivers digital cutting patterns directly to the cutting operator, ensuring precise execution.

Moreover, it facilitates the generation of labels for panels, incorporating essential production-specific details and QR codes for efficient panel identification. Cutsmart extends its functionality to offcuts as well, enabling them to be accurately labelled for better utilization.

Quality control

Marking rejected panels using physical indicators was a common practice, but it lacked data collection for defect analysis. Without this data, it was difficult to conduct a thorough analysis to identify and address recurring issues. Consequently, there was a lack of assurance regarding the quality of items leaving the factory, as only quality-certified items were not guaranteed.

Naadi allows comprehensive tracking of panel rejections. This means that data pertinent to defect analysis, including the reasons behind common rejections, can be conveniently accessed through detailed reports and interactive dashboards.

This robust data accessibility empowers decision-makers to swiftly implement targeted corrective measures aimed at enhancing both the quality and efficiency of production processes.

Order tracking

Relying on phone calls, emails, or manual updates from personnel to gauge real-time order progress on the shop floor for production purposes was cumbersome and time-consuming. This approach lacked visibility into the status of orders, which hindered decision-making and efficient resource allocation.

Naadi’s tracking features made it easy to access real-time data. Unique QR codes enable real-time tracking, eliminating paper trails. Real-time data collection and recording ensure traceability of parts and operations and allow access to reports anytime.

Digital Job cards enhance efficiency and track operator actions, and its tailored workflows accommodate organizational requirements and streamline processes. The seamless integration with CNC machines automates program delivery while real-time tagging enables precise tracking of item locations, reducing missing parts.

Packing, labelling

In the past, an entirely manual packing process often proved susceptible to errors and delays. Manual packing and the subsequent tracking of packed panels lacked reliability, which increased the likelihood of missing panels, resulting in losses due to the necessity of resending or reproducing items.

Additionally, the manual process of labelling boxes with customer names and box numbers consumed significant time.

With Naadi, achieving error-free packing and shipment is paramount in ensuring customer satisfaction and operational efficiency. Thus, the risk of missing panels is mitigated, guaranteeing that all items are securely packed and accounted for.

Utilizing box labels enhances identification and tracking throughout the packing and shipping process.

Incorporating custom packing logic tailored to specific requirements further optimizes the process, ensuring that each shipment is tailored to meet the business needs. Additionally, digital proof of delivery provides transparent documentation of successful deliveries, enhancing accountability and customer confidence.

Return on Investment

The return on investment associated with the implementation of Naadi leads to 99.9% error-free packing, quality improvement in products post-production, error-free shipments, and increased productivity on the shop floor.

Achieving error-free packing and shipments minimizes the need for rectifying errors and dealing with returns or replacements. This results in direct cost savings by reducing labour costs, material wastage, and associated expenses, ultimately optimizing operational expenditure.

Implementing measures to improve quality post-production ensures that products meet or exceed customer expectations. Higher product quality not only reduces the likelihood of defects or issues but also enhances brand reputation and customer satisfaction, leading to increased customer loyalty and repeat business.

Error-free shipments contribute to reliable and timely delivery of products to customers. This reliability fosters trust and confidence among customers, leading to higher satisfaction levels and potentially positive word-of-mouth referrals, which drive sales and revenue growth.

Increased productivity on the shop floor streamlines production processes and workflows, allowing for faster order processing and fulfilment. This optimization of resources and workflow efficiency reduces lead times, enhances throughput, and ultimately boosts overall productivity, contributing to improved operational performance.

Investing in quality improvement initiatives and achieving error-free shipments differentiates the business from competitors. Consistently delivering high-quality products on time enhances the company’s reputation and positions it as a preferred choice in the market, attracting new customers and fostering customer loyalty.
