The Group is convinced: digitising our working methods will help to improve both the working conditions of our employees and our competitiveness.
At La Roche-sur-Yon, France, team members participated in the creation of a training course using a virtual reality headset. The teams recreated a virtual 3D workshop, in which participants are informed of the proper procedures in terms of safety and quality within minutes. The next step: the Izmir site in Turkey is in the process of equipping itself with virtual reality headsets in order to recreate this experience.
MANUFACTURING EXECUTION SYSTEM : 100% GROUPE ATLANTIC SOFTWARE
The Merville site in France has developed a Manufacturing Execution System. It involves internally-developed operating software that allows operators to receive better step-by-step guidance on the production line, thanks to a barcode recognition system.
Following encouraging results, the MES was rolled out at the plants on the Billy-Berclau and Pont-de-Vaux sites.
THE COBOTS : NEW ALLY FOR OUR EMPLOYEES
The Billy-Berclau and La Roche-sur-Yon sites are equipped with COBOTs (Collaborative RoBOTs) which are intended to improve working conditions for employees in the plant. These robots perform more repetitive tasks, leaving employees to focus on tasks with greater added value.
“All of these steps are part of the Group’s motivation to become a player in the Industry of the Future, complementing our continuous improvement process. Our next challenge will be to multiply these experiences, to prove their profitability and to roll them out.”
