Weco Manufacturing Digital Visual Scheduling Implementation Case Study

[Case Study] Digital Visual Scheduling with Weco Manufacturing

This 2-page case study tells the story of a mid-size manufacturing company that transitioned from an inefficient scheduling system to Digital Visual Scheduling, achieving widespread improvements across its manufacturing floor.

Learn how DVS helps to transform many aspects of day-to-day operations with real-time visibility and job tracking. 

What is Digital Visual Scheduling (DVS)? 

Digital Visual Scheduling provides an automated schedule, in real-time, for each job station on the manufacturing floor. It automatically notifies job operators of their next task and shows job progress at each workstation, from beginning to end. Remotely accessible to management, DVS also provides insight into critical job details, such as customer information, job start times, order notes, and more.

“The biggest benefit from an operations standpoint is the time savings and cost savings.” 

Mike Weco, Production Manager

Working with L-Tron to implement this solution was very effective, as this project showed how they understood the concept of what we wanted to accomplish and had the technical ability to deliver a finished product.
