Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has been named the Best Global Sustainable Supply Chain organization at the Global Sustainable Supply Chain Summit 2021 (GSSC Summit). In 2021, it was ranked 4th in Gartner’s closely-watched annual ranking of corporate supply chains.

“Using the native collaboration capabilities and data-driven execution functions of Decisyon App Composer, Schneider Electric’s Global Supply Chain has transformed almost 200 plants to work like they belong to a unique human being with one heartbeat guided by our Smart Factory digital brain."

This tool meets the needs of employees in the production sectors, but also in the support services such as health, safety, quality, supply chain, and maintenance processes. For us, the goal is to improve our productivity by about 7% every year, and above all, we are seeking to accelerate our capacity to see and decide.”

Accelerate Decision-Making in Lean Manufacturing Meetings

The goal of this application was to empower thousands of users from shop-floor to top-floor, from IT and OT, to globally collaborate, make faster and smarter decisions and solve production problems while reducing downtimes and time-to-value. GSC has set OEE improvement objectives and required this new solution to accelerate decision making in lean manufacturing meetings and implementation of remedial actions.

KPI-Driven Action Generation and Execution

Decisyon App Composer, leveraging the EcoStruxure Plant Advisor IIoT platform, designed and introduced a fully mobile, actionable, end-to-end Lean Meeting application that entirely digitalized and optimized Schneider Electric GSC’s manufacturing process. It enables operators and managers to quickly analyze ideas and actions, accelerating decision making and problem resolutions. It also provides automatic KPIs for process efficiency, bringing a global standardization and robustness to short interval cycles for all the plants around the world, while preserving local flexibility and control.

Idea Generation and Escalation with Collaborative Tools

Decisyon’s App Composer has not only dramatically accelerated solution creation and deployment but more importantly, DAC’s out-of-the-box collaborative data-driven capabilities improve the engagement for operational teams. This powerful combination empowers teams with a greater degree of autonomy and responsibility for how equipment runs, along with the ability to generate ideas and provide visible and measurable results.

The Results

Digital Lean Meeting solution is a unique digital tool that collects all data for the KPIs used in the Lean Manufacturing short-interval management cycles. It allows follow-up on efficiency actions so that everyone – from the staff on the plant floor to the top management – can have complete access to all factory information. This application has generated high commitment at all level of production and has enabled to increase production site performance of 4-5% in one year. The combined scalable architectures of EcoStruxure Plant Advisor and of Decisyon App Composer allows to configure and run a new plant in less then 4 hours.
