Why ACEA is a 4.0 company
ACEA AND THE INDUSTRY OF THE FUTURE 4.0
The transformation of our production tool, our information and communication system and our industrial organization represent our ambitious projects as part of ACEA’s evolution towards the industry of the future 4.0.
Deployment of digital processes in workshops
The digitization of production stations is also part of our agenda. The idea is to replace current paper-based instruction sheets with digital tablets and guide operators in the tasks to be done by the use of videos. The goal of this investment is twofold: better efficiency and a more up-to-date corporate image.
Automation is one of the priorities in the evolution and transformation of the company. A current illustration of this is the installation of SMD (Surface Mounting Device) components with two high speed automatic installation lines, as well as the automatic optical inspection of electronic boards (AOI). The goal is to extend this as far as possible to manual tasks. A study is currently underway with students from INSA and the ECPM in Strasbourg concerning the robotisation of the resin treatment section of the workshop.
Project LEAN PHOENIX 4.0
ACEA has not forgotten industrial organization with its project PHOENIX 4.0. It uses “LEAN” as a continuous improvement tool, based on two key principles: empowerment of the operators and the generalization of visual factory management.
New ERP system
The information system is being redesigned to interconnect the various corporate departments, streamline data exchange and improve production management. The old ERP has recently been replaced by a new ERP. There are a variety of objectives: to ensure greater flexibility, responsiveness, and of course to achieve productivity gains.
