AW North Carolina, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of automatic transmissions and their components. AW North Carolina is a subsidiary of Aisin AW Co., Ltd., a major automatic transmission manufacturer located in Anjō, Japan.

They were using inadequate and time-consuming paper documents and spreadsheets for their Shift Handovers and the logging of human entered information. Most of their data collection was recorded on paper, with some of that having to be also transferred into spreadsheets. This resulted in unnecessary double effort in entering data after the point of entry. 

To solve their paper and spreadsheet inefficiency problems, AW North Carolina augmented their production Human Machine Interface (HMI) with j5 Applications.

j5 International (Part of Hexagon), a leading provider of Operations Management Software, provided the solution through Delivery PartnerInSource Solutions. AW North Carolina, are currently using the j5 Operations Logbookj5 Shift Handoverj5 Work Instructionsj5 Event Manager, j5 Mobile and j5 Inspection Rounds along with j5 IndustraForm® Templates at their plant in Durham, North Carolina.

j5 Operations Management Software has allowed AW North Carolina to save around 1 to 1.5 hours per day during Shift Handovers as a result of digitally transforming a 20-year-old paper process.  

“Without j5 Operations Management Software, we would still be using inefficient paper documents for our human procedures. The digital combination of these human procedures in j5 Operations Management Software and the real-time data from our Wonderware by AVEVA and MES Systems has really increased our data collection efficiency.”
