Parkinson Spencer Refractories (PSR) is a leading supplier of forehearth and distribution systems to the glass industry. Prior to working with Yozu, the global business was managing its expansive manufacturing process with spreadsheets and paper documents, with a substantial risk of human error.
Requiring to make an overly-complex process more simple, PSR commissioned Yozu to develop a sophisticated, yet user-friendly system that would drive every area of their manufacturing process – from materials production to preparing for shipping.
Whilst maintaining a clean and intuitive user interface, it was important that the system could manage complex processes such as the manufacturing workflows that drive the in-house production process for PSR, as well as any third-party vendors. It was also essential that the solution minimised the risk of manual error.
Much of the business’ working process is now automated by PSR’s end product the Works Management System, allowing staff to simply monitor the entire process and only engage with the system at key milestones – e.g. loading / unloading a kiln. The business benefits and value-added is extensive since it frees up significant amounts of time for staff and allows them to focus on more strategic tasks.
Due to the success of the system, Yozu consequently developed a mobile app for use on the PSR shop floor. This allows for handheld access to information in real-time and provides staff with a quick way to monitor all daily activity from one device.
PSR are now able to:
- Track the volume and status of orders in real-time.
- Manage timed-delivery of multiple programmes running through the system.
- Monitor and record key operational delivery data.
- Integrate with companion systems.
- Access suite of reporting.
- Front-End Development
- Back-End development
- UI/UX Design
