Triggers & Business Challenges
Grupo Antolin started more than 15 years ago the implementation of the company Production System until they realized in 2014 that the system was “full of paper” and with clear challenges in communication. For Grupo Antolin being a World-Class manufacturer, not only it was needed a Production System, but a tool to implement the system quickly all over the world. It was critical to choose an intuitive tool and easy-to-use by the employees to get their maximum contribution at every plant in the world.
Grupo Antolin Bamberg, Germany, adopted the mlean Production System to digitalize the management of the shop floor in a sustainable way, previously on paper. At the same time, the fact that all the plants were all interconnected, Grupo Antolin Bamberg realized data was becoming information to make better and quicker decisions, easier to establish improvement actions by just involving every individual.
