Always Up-To-Date, Regardless of Changes
Wrapsody saves money for a leading manufacturer of forged metal products
One of the world’s leading manufacturers of forged metal products for wind energy, chemical and power plant industries, needed to manufacture products that met proper specifications. Sales, product planning, manufacturing and quality assurance managers were all involved in the process to make sure parts were manufactured correctly.
Specifications frequently changed after manufacturing began. Unless everyone received the latest specifications, the company would manufacture the wrong product. Each group wasted a lot of time trying to find the latest specifications and wasted a lot of money remanufacturing the correct part. The company considered using traditional ECMs and cloud-based file sharing systems to provide all departments with the current specifications, but could never keep up with the changes because their local copies were not up to date.
After implementing Wrapsody, when a specification changed each department saw the updates immediately in their local copy of the specification document. There was no need to share documents among the departments, since the latest specification changes were always reflected in the shared document.
Since Wrapsody guarantees the latest document version wherever it is, each department saved and used local copies knowing they always had the latest specifications. By having the history of how and when specifications changed, it was easy to review and confirm all updates. The company saved money and time by always manufacturing the correct product.
