JIS- Production plant with multiple welding cells
Futaba Manufacturing UK
Futaba Industrial UK (FIUK) has a very complex set of requirements for its welding plant JIS system. This complexity emerges from both the number of variants produced at the FIUK plant and the number of points of fit on the assembly line of their client, Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK.
Infinity engineers developed a JIS solution to address these challenges, code named Dove. This solution was based on extensive, detailed analysis of production processes in addition to working in close collaboration with Toyota, the production line staff from Futaba and observation and analysis of Futaba’s production line set up.
The Dove JIS system developed by Infinity for the Futaba welding plant covers BOM, scheduling of production, custom reporting and self-billing. Features like the Welding Instruction Sheet (WIS) and a Matching System to cross-match self-billing data were custom developed to overcome the complexities of the manufacturing process.
