Warsaw, Poland – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Ficomirrors, a global supplier of automobiles to automakers around the world, has selected the HPE GreenLake Edge-to-Cloud platform to improve production efficiency and power a flexible manufacturing system. Ficomirrors Poland is part of Ficosa, a multinational company specializing in the research, development, manufacture and marketing of advanced systems for the automotive and mobility sectors.
As the demand for customization continues to increase in automotive manufacturing, producers seek to meet consumer demands with new models that require customizable, flexible and efficient manufacturing operations. Just in Sequence Manufacturing (JIS) is a strategy that aims to create a flexible production cycle by ensuring that the correct components and parts arrive at the production line in the correct order “just in time” for assembly. Such an approach is designed to reduce production time, eliminate supply buffers, and dramatically reduce inventory costs. However, executing JIS manufacturing requires advanced logistics and seamless communication between customers and suppliers, and therefore, it also requires an equally flexible, responsive and scalable technological environment.
“Our new manufacturing strategy was designed to meet the automotive industry’s strong demand for bespoke manufacturing and efficient sourcing services to enable our customers to increase their production rate and integrate more flexibility at a reduced cost.“said Michał Kasak, IT manager at Ficomirrors.”To ensure smooth just-in-sequence manufacturing system integration and execution, we selected HPE GreenLake to create an IT environment capable of handling any workload on demand, facilitating fast and transparent data sharing, and to strengthen our flexible approach.. ”
