Continuous Improvement Automation Software

Datanomix, vendor of production intelligence software for industrial manufacturers, offers its Fusion GEMBA product. This offering streamlines continuous improvement operations and planning with a focus on the GEMBA approach to such projects.

The hallmark is a Digital GEMBA Board-a real-time indicator of key factory metrics around Safety, Quality, Delivery, Cost and Inventory-that offers quick visual drill-downs into any customer, project or part. All the software requires is a connection to the ERP system, and all dashboards and reports from that point forward are fully automated.

Fusion GEMBA continues to build on the production intelligence vision for Datanomix by automatically pulling together critical metrics that describe important facets of factory operations, making people aware of whether performance is increasing or not and why. Where Fusion Monitoring software quantifies individual job performance using real-time data from manufacturing equipment, Fusion GEMBA leverages existing ERP data to derive intelligence at the factory level. During the morning GEMBA walk, users approach one of several smart TVs throughout the building; review all the key metrics, jobs and priorities; and form the day's game plan with all of the stakeholders huddled around. Specific details on any jobs, reports and plans can be analyzed right at the TV.

"We designed our GEMBA software to be automated, real time, simple to follow and serve as the pulse of the entire factory at a glance. Fusion GEMBA automatically retrieves vital operations information, and sorts and updates it constantly to deliver a dynamic view of the entire operation as it is happening," said Greg McHale, Datanomix co-founder and CTO. "Priorities are clear, metrics are live, and plans and projects unfold live right in front of the TV screen using the best available data. Fusion GEMBA catalyzes the continuous improvement culture, making it easy for everyone to see and discuss the best opportunities."

DFF Corporation in Agawam, MA, machines and assembles a number of components for global customers like Amazon, Siemens and others. Bill Marganti, DFF President, and his staff first deployed the Datanomix Fusion Monitoring System across their 300,000 sq. ft. facility as a phase one for intelligently managing their large production floor.

"Fusion gives us up-to-the-second information on our critical jobs, allowing us to balance the needs of all our operators and customers' parts across the production floor," said Marganti. "Our leadership team makes decisions based on Fusion's production scores. Fusion GEMBA was the next logical step in the management framework. Gemba is a way of unifying our day-to-day operations and continuous improvement efforts under one umbrella. The Datanomix Fusion products have changed the way we manage growth at DFF. We see the KPI's for the entire operation on a single interactive screen and can drill into any facet of the business to form our action plan."

Datanomix Fusion is a hands-free, real-time, plug & play production and operations monitoring solution that requires no operator input and automatically benchmarks and scores running jobs using only data from the manufacturing equipment itself. Fusion GEMBA can be purchased with Fusion Monitoring, or as a standalone product. Running either software product on smart TVs is highly recommended.
