1. IC tags and barcodes streamline production with data collection, use on products in progress
By using the IC tags and barcodes attached to products in progress and all sorts of equipment to collect a variety of performance information, including not only quality and progress information throughout the entire process, from the mixing of raw materials to inspection, but also the humidity and temperature when raw materials are mixed and the type of glaze applied to the sanitary ware, it becomes possible to trace individual products in real time. This enables an understanding of quality information from when the product was manufactured, even after it ships.
2. Manages quality inspection data for the unique shape of sanitary ware
In the TOTO Group, millimeter-scale distortions and flaws cannot be allowed in sanitary ware that will be installed in plumbing, so it is meticulously designed, taking into account the fact that ceramic shrinks in the drying and firing process. A strict, detailed and multifaceted inspection is also carried out. To enable inspectors to record thorough inspection results, including details, the system displays a diagram of the flush toilet from all six perspectives, above and below, in front and behind, and left and right, where inspectors can instantly record or check the locations and status of flaws. Using the data collected on these tablets, system operators can digitally grasp locations with a tendency to produce flaws, or elements in the facilities or environment that may cause flaws. This can lead to further improvements in the manufacturing process.
3. Human resource development and experience transmission through the use of data
By implementing this system, TOTO Vietnam can share information that was not previously visualized, such as the work procedures taken by experienced workers and inspection results, invigorating communication and exchanges of opinion among workers. This system is intended to support local Vietnamese employees in their proactive efforts to improve production, leading to improved human resource development.
4. Provides a superior user experience in a production environment
Fujitsu built a system where production performance and product inspection results, which employees previously recorded on paper, can be easily input on tablets and handy terminals. The companies worked with employees on the actual production line, having them test out the tablet input screen, confirming its readability and usability, collaborating on everything from the size of the text and the placement of input fields to the size of the keyboard.

By supporting TOTO Vietnam's efforts to further improve its production and productivity, Fujitsu promotes the further spread of flush toilets, contributing to healthier and prosperous daily lives for the people of Vietnam. In addition, using the experience gained from implementing this system, Fujitsu will support its customers’ business transformations by providing new solutions to its manufacturing customers.
