LIXIL Selects Fujitsu Tablets

"The introduction of tablets has improved overall efficiency by approximately 30 per cent and the implementation of a tablet-based system has made procedures consistent, which has raised levels of standardization"

Keiji Yamaguchi, Building Process Section Chief, LIXIL Corporation

The customer

LIXIL Corporation provides products from windows, tiles, doors and internal building materials for residential housing, to plumbing related equipment such as kitchens, bathrooms and toilets, as well as commercial facilities or office buildings, public facilities and spaces such as railway stations and transportation infrastructure.

LIXIL Corporation’s Ariake Plant is an integrated factory in the area that encompasses the Chugoku, Shikoku, and Kyushu regions. This plant manufactures aluminum sashes for buildings from raw materials.

The challenge

LIXIL’s manufacturing processes relied on paper instructions, creating traceability and productivity issues. On the production line, terminals at fixed locations restricted areas in which data could be entered, causing inefficiency. The necessity of wearing gloves on the production line also presented difficulty in operating the terminals.

The solution

The company selected Fujitsu tablets to enable on-the-spot, real-time processing of information.

The benefit

  • Making instructions available in electronic form by using tablets has delivered reliable traceability and improved productivity
  • Using portable tablets in place of terminals at fixed locations has enabled data entry at any location in the factory
  • By selecting Windows 8 tablets, existing assets can be leveraged to shorten the time required to create suitable configurations
  • Using touch pens to operate tablets has also enhanced efficiency

Products and services

  • 75 x Fujitsu tablets
