STP software digitalizes whiteboards at Oerlikon

January 3, 2022

The loca­tion Balz­ers of the Oer­likon group was look­ing for a way to pro­fes­sion­al­ize and stan­dard­ize their week­ly shop floor meet­ings through­out the com­pa­ny. With the STP soft­ware by STIWA the world­wide leader for inno­v­a­tive coat­ings has found their right solution.

What’s the sta­tus of the cur­rent pro­duc­tion key fig­ures and which steps must be tak­en in order to reach the goals that have been set? In the course of week­ly shop floor meet­ings Oer­likon has main­tained a reg­u­lar overview of the tasks, process­es and goals of the teams at the pro­duc­tion sites for many years.

Professionalization of the shop floor meeting

“So far, the shop floor meet­ings were car­ried out with the help of a white­board. This also meant wast­ing a lot of time and paper to com­pile all the infor­ma­tion”, reports Dominik Bach­mann, Man­ag­er Oper­a­tional Excel­lence for Liecht­en­stein and Switzer­land at Oer­likon. In a pilot project at the loca­tion Balz­ers in Liecht­en­stein he tried the STP soft­ware for the com­pa­ny group Oer­likon. From his per­spec­tive, the soft­ware solu­tion espe­cial­ly impress­es with its flex­i­bil­i­ty: “STP is very easy to use and offers a vari­ety of pos­si­bil­i­ties in its imple­men­ta­tion. Fur­ther­more STIWA was very accom­mo­dat­ing with spe­cial requests.” A big advan­tage for Bach­mann lies in data safe­ty as well: “The sys­tem is imple­ment­ed local­ly, no cor­po­rate data is saved via a Cloud-Server.”

“STP is eas­i­ly acces­si­ble and under­stand­able for all employ­ees. More­over for Oer­likon STP is an ide­al basis for audits”, Bach­mann lists fur­ther advan­tages of the dig­i­tal assis­tance sys­tem. The solu­tion ulti­mate­ly con­vinces with its opti­cal visu­al­iza­tion and price, accord­ing to Bach­mann: “In com­par­i­son to oth­er soft­ware solu­tions that have been test­ed simul­ta­ne­ous­ly in a pilot project at the loca­tion in Ger­many, STP presents itself nicer and is also more cost-efficient.”
