Because it had all the OEE records, ignition naturally become a platform for us to build our stand-up meetings into. It connects our three shifts and three tiers together allowing information to be entered in one meeting and displayed across many; safety & quality metrics, actions and escalations.
When COVID hit It allowed our leaders to be totally connected as daily stand up meetings seamlessly transitioned to online meetings. In the last year, we have continued our journey with ignition to remove paper from the site. Ignition now handles entry of quality checks, reminding operators when they are required (not allowing them to do the checks ahead of time) and cross-checking their inputs to the specification to ensure that any issues are immediately raised.
It’s empowered all our team members to look at how technology can improve their work-life. Driven by the team members we now have near miss reporting, recognition, change control, project works sign off, rosters, site comms, induction, onboarding, standard work, purchase order requests, warehouse stock control, despatch truck management, innovation tracking, work orders (recipe), AGV management, and many more!
As Ignition has become an integral part of our site; Tim has been there to support us through server upgrades, a cyber attack and a business acquisition. Without him our site would not be leading the network in innovation and engagement.’
