Yokohama Rubber achieves real-time visibility of the production statuses of its 15 main factories in Japan and overseas
"It’s amazing because it’s like something you see in a movie. We were able to think outside the box and come up with an unprecedented design. We’ve achieved our goal of using a stylish design to encourage visualization."
Yokohama Rubber has implemented FUJITSU Intelligent Dashboard to provide real-time, cross-sectional visibility of its Japanese and overseas factories’ operations.
Yokohama Rubber was founded in 1917, and over the past century it has produced high-performance tires for every vehicle category, from compact cars and sports cars to high-powered sedans and large construction equipment. It has also developed original equipment tires for many of the world’s leading car makers.
Yokohama Rubber relocated its production bases overseas, making global and total factory optimization difficult. It wanted to improve operational visibility, automate data retrieval, and increase efficiency.
The company implemented the FUJITSU Intelligent Dashboard and developed a system which allows users to make real-time, cross-sectional comparisons of the state of all the company’s Japanese and overseas factories.
- Intelligent Dashboard provides instant visibility of production base status
- Access to real-time information enables smarter decision making
- Automated data retrieval from multiple factory systems increases efficiency
