Challenge

VIDEOTON, a significant player in contract manufacturing, faced substantial operational inefficiencies due to a lack of digitalization in their production processes. Prior to implementing Fabrico, all reports, work orders, and analyses were manually handled using paper and Excel spreadsheets. This traditional method of managing operations led to several challenges:

  • Inefficient Work Order Processing: Technicians recorded repair details on paper, which were then collected and managed manually by supervisors, leading to delays and potential errors.
  • Daily Operational Meetings: Each morning, technicians and managers spent two hours discussing machine issues and workflow, significantly cutting into productive work time.
  • Lack of Real-Time Data: Managers had no real-time insights into machine performance or factory health, making it difficult to make informed decisions quickly.
  • Untracked Inventory and Costs: There was no clear visibility into the spare parts warehouse. Costs for repairs and material usage were unknown, complicating budgeting and inventory management.

Solution

VIDEOTON implemented Fabrico, a comprehensive Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS), to digitize and streamline their manufacturing operations. Key features of the Fabrico solution included:

  • Digital Work Cards: Transitioning from paper to digital work orders allowed for quicker processing and easier access to necessary information for technicians.
  • Real-Time Monitoring: Managers now have a real-time view of the entire manufacturing process, including detailed reports on each machine's performance and overall factory health.
  • Efficient Reporting: Automated reporting tools replaced manual paper and Excel-based processes, enhancing the accuracy and availability of data.
  • Inventory and Cost Management: Fabrico provided clear visibility into the cost of repairs, material usage, and inventory levels, enabling better financial and logistical decision-making.

Results

The implementation of Fabrico transformed VIDEOTON’s operations, leading to significant improvements in efficiency and productivity:

  • Increased Productivity: Elimination of the daily two-hour meetings freed up additional time for technicians, allowing them to focus more on production rather than administrative discussions.
  • Enhanced Operational Efficiency: With digital work orders and real-time monitoring, the workflow became smoother and more responsive to issues as they arose.
  • Reduced Maintenance Costs: Fabrico’s detailed tracking and reporting capabilities helped decrease maintenance costs by 20%, as managers could now analyze and optimize resource allocation and material usage.
  • Improved Inventory Management: Better visibility into warehouse stocks and repair costs allowed for more effective inventory control and budget management.
