HOW AVIX WORKS

Intuitive and user-friendly operation.

STEP 1

Analyze process

We make a film of the process, break it down into individual process steps and immediately we have all the necessary data for a time study, the balancing and the work instructions.

STEP 2

CLOCK OUT THE LINE

After the analysis, it is very easy to continue working with this data. We now have the basis for creating variants and clocking out the line.

STEP 3

GENERATE WORK INSTRUCTION

The work instructions can now be created with one click from the created structure. If desired in the exact customer layout. With logo, pictures, comments, descriptions etc.

Testimonials

  • As a first step Luxo conducted a pilot project that effectively demonstrated the usefulness of AviX. With good results and a positive experience, Luxo Sweden continues to optimize operations through its own use of the AviX Suite. "With structured video analysis of our operations, we can correct errors and make effective changes. This has been well received by our employees as we not only increases efficiency but also reduces the risk of injuries. We make constant improvements with AviX”

  • On a Saturday, 25-30 fitters, technicians and production managers from the engine factory D12-line, met at Scania's Learning Center to work with AviX. Production leader Pernilla Cedergren started at 8 am to define the group's task for the day and to describe the current situation. ”A few months ago we had an estimate of the demand for the next forecast period but today we are more uncertain about how the current financial turmoil will affect us. The best we can do to prepare for deviations from the forecast is to have extreme control on our production times, so that we are well prepared to quickly adapt to the demand. That is why we sit here today to analyze, analyze and analyze again", says Pernilla.

  • Sapa Heat Transfers first natural step was to run a pilot project to verify the system's full potential. Per Nilsson continues; "During the pilot project we were met by knowledgeable and dedicated staff, they were also available for support and feedback during the implementation." The implementation of AVIX took about six months, but is not considered as anything bad. It gave the time to firmly establish the purpose and get people involved. This is a key point in the implementation because it takes time to change behavior and the way of thinking. In the end, the pilot project laid the groundwork by ensuring transparency and openness to everybody involved.

  • Getrag has, through the projects, also laid foundations for adapting the capacity of the assembly lines to an expected increase in demand. "Besides that we now use the resources effectively, we also have the basis for getting started with standardized work. Everyone now knows what is required to maintain the tact of the lines", says.
