Previously 10 hours a week had to be spent on planning. Now it takes 30 minutes a day and work results can be reflected with greater accuracy. Scheduling time, production lead times and WIP inventory have all been reduced by about 30%.
Implementing Asprova to visualize work in progress from initiation to completion, improve information access and speed up decision-making
Hyogo factory introduces Asprova. Production lead time reduced from 2 weeks to 1 week, planning time reduced from 8 man-days to 2 man-days.
Effectively reduces plan proposal time and cuts back on inventory to trim lines of completed product inventory 62.8%.
Installing Asprova in order to deal with high-mix, low-volume manufacture realized a 50 percent cut in both production lead time and production planning time, and resulted in reduction of in-progress inventories.
