Company Background

The leader company has been growing for more than a 100 years. It is one of the largest Portuguese groups dedicated to industrial and commercial activity in the agri-food sector. The company employs 670 employees, produces more than 130 different product categories, and annually transforms more than 440 thousand tons of cereals in the 5 certified production centers.

The Challenge

By providing more than 130 product categories each day, chnageover processes are frequent and must always be ensured at its best in the shop floor. Changeovers from the assembly line are processes used to prepare one assembly line from producing one product, to another one.

Inefficient & time-consuming training
Complex team management
Various efficiency issues
Changeover frequent errors

The solution

In summary, the solution was implemented in two fronts. The first, was to focus on a more productive training procedures with digital tools such as digital process twins, e-learning, and Augmented Reality.

  • Digitalization of on-the-job training
  • Digitize with instructions, validations, and tests
  • New mobility patterns and increased workers’ skills
  • Real-time management and monitoring capabilities

We talk about automating operations, about people, and about new business models [...] Wrapped inside those topics are data analytics, technologies, and software – all of which are enablers, not drivers.

The Augmented & Connected Worker Benefits

By applying new digital tools to training, and releasing front-line workers to the field earlier than before, the company was able to highly reduce the changeover process training time and dependencies of specialists.
