With the introduction of Industry 4.0, technology is changing the landscape and enterprises in manufacturing are looking for solutions to optimise their factories and supply chain, as well as to ensure the safety of their employees. Over the years, manufacturing companies have digitised their core operations using Material Requirements Planning (MRP) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. However, many of the critical supporting processes are often run manually, which results in increased compliance challenges and risks.

Boombirds, a zero-code process management platform, empowers manufacturers by transforming manual process workflows into digital form effortlessly. This results in improved operational transparency, ensures quality as well as compliance with custom-defined operating procedures.

Here are some of the ways Boombirds helps enterprises in the manufacturing industry to keep pace with Industry 4.0, boost efficiency, and drive quality and compliance.

Factory Safety Audits
and Walkarounds

Factory Safety Audits
and Walkarounds

Irrespective of the size of company and operation, manufacturers need to conduct regular safety audits to help spot potential hazards, record near-miss incidents, and document non-compliance. Without the right tool, they are ill-equipped and struggle with inconsistent service delivery, lack of management transparency, and the inability to improve accountability and timeliness.

  • Manage and keep track of all audits happening across facilities in real-time with governance at local, regional, and corporate levels

  • Ensure procedural checklist adherence and document proof of audit visits with live photo capture

  • Schedule recurring safety walkarounds and audits based on your compliance policies

  • Enable accountability and ensure remediations are followed through sufficiently

  • Track roaming teams conducting field audits across multiple facilities and locations

  • Manage and keep track of all audits happening across facilities in real-time with governance at local, regional, and corporate levels

  • Ensure procedural checklist adherence and document proof of audit visits with live photo capture

  • Schedule recurring safety walkarounds and audits based on your compliance policies

  • Enable accountability and ensure remediations are followed through sufficiently

  • Track roaming teams conducting field audits across multiple facilities and locations

Machine Maintenance
& Repair

Machine Maintenance
& Repair

For companies in the heavy industry and manufacturing sector, machine downtime is a disaster. If not identified and corrected early, machine downtime can cost companies millions in repairs, in addition to the loss of productivity due to being offline. Manufacturers today recognise that not having the right means to help manage the coordination and execution of regular large-scale maintenance and repair activities can cause inconsistency, a lack of accountability, and inefficiency.

  • Manage preventive maintenance of machines by scheduling and monitoring periodic maintenance activities across facilities in real-time

  • Ensure compliance with organisational maintenance standards by adhering to SOPs with detailed checklists and photographic proof of completion

  • Track and manage breakdown workflows for immediate resolution and subsequently drive root cause analysis, resulting in improved preventive maintenance

  • Improve accountability with centralised governance of maintenance activities at all levels i.e. local, regional, and corporate

  • Live-track roaming engineers providing specialist maintenance and repair services across multiple facilities and locations

  • Manage preventive maintenance of machines by scheduling and monitoring periodic maintenance activities across facilities in real-time

Consignment Delivery
Tracking

Consignment Delivery
Tracking

Once goods are produced in the factory, they are batched and transported to a storage warehouse or to the distribution channel. Transporting a large volume of shipments requires meticulous planning and impeccable coordination. Manufacturers struggle to keep track of these consignments leaving the factory, have limited operational visibility, and often find it hard to maximise the efficiency of their delivery teams.

  • Keep track of consignments in transit as well as your field staff fulfilling deliveries in real-time

  • Ensure compliance during pick-up and delivery with photographic proof and electronic signature with automated alerts and notifications

  • Flexibly align operating procedures with your standards and protocols for goods transportation

  • Coordinate field and back office teams effortlessly to help them provide consistent delivery experiences with the ability to track pit stops and trip incentives

  • Collaborate with customers and provide them with real-time updates on consignment delivery

  • Keep track of consignments in transit as well as your field staff fulfilling deliveries in real-time

  • Ensure compliance during pick-up and delivery with photographic proof and electronic signature with automated alerts and notifications

  • Flexibly align operating procedures with your standards and protocols for goods transportation

  • Collaborate with customers and provide them with real-time updates on consignment delivery

Defect Resolution
Management

Defect Resolution
Management

Quality is an essential part of the manufacturing process. In an ideal world, products have no quality issues, but often this is not the case. When customers make complaints about defective goods, a quality inspector is sent over to assess any faulty items and investigate the root cause of the incident. Because this is a largely manual process, senior management lack a transparent view of defects resulting in limited governance, inefficient follow-up, and an overall inability to identify the root cause for prevention of similar quality issues.

  • Obtain a bird’s eye view of all defects and ongoing complaints

  • Define custom procedural workflow in handling various types of complaints and ensure compliance

  • Enhance accountability and make sure remediations or corrective actions are followed through in detail with proof of corrective actions taken

  • Identify defects and provide references of defects with photographs and maintain a centralised system of investigation notes

  • Live-track field teams while they conduct investigations at customer locations

  • Obtain a bird’s eye view of all defects and ongoing complaints

  • Define custom procedural workflow in handling various types of complaints and ensure compliance

  • Enhance accountability and make sure remediations or corrective actions are followed through in detail with proof of corrective actions taken

Digital Innovation
Platform

Digital Innovation
Platform

With Industry 4.0, every manufacturer undergoes major digital transformation programs to promote and accelerate innovation and to keep pace with this ongoing industrial revolution. Innovation management requires a new leadership style promoting ‘intrapreneurship’, giving freedom and financial support to create new products, services, systems, etc. Key elements to run innovation programs include agile ideation, prototyping and collaboration among various stakeholders (e.g. innovators, subject matter experts, users, digital teams and external partners).

  • Run your virtual Digital Innovation Office with stakeholders subscribing to the newsfeed to learn about ongoing innovations in the organisation

  • Drive the lifecycle of new innovations from request to approval and go live

  • Empower intrapreneurship by creating an exclusive workspace (Digital Innovation Network) for each innovation, delegating ownership to the innovators to run the program

  • Manage all innovation tasks within the Digital Innovation Network using a simple Kanban-inspired board collaborating efficiently with both internal and external contributors

  • Centralise governance across all innovations while keeping the spirit of intrapreneurship
