from advancing down the production line.
Distribute troubleshooting and instruction documents along with downtime fault communication
reducing the action start time from one (1) hour to one (1) minute.
Provide rapid feedback of product identification with the customer when a defective product
issue occurs and establish the smallest range of a recall campaign.
Communicate performance measures throughout the plant via smart LED displays to drive
awareness and a culture for continuous improvement.
Reduce injuries and OSHA-related incidents by safety managers immediately sharing
photos/videos of violations to team members.
Utilize the Industry 4.0 communication platform to seamlessly integrate with
internally developed real-time process and performance mobile apps.
IGear software essentially runs our entire manufacturing process. We use the ASSIST™ platform
to not only record critical process data from nearly every machine in our plant, but to also provide process control and management of nonconforming parts. Viewing production, downtime, detailed part history, and trended data is also an important aspect of the solution. Finally, IGear’s SQUEAKS® IoT platform allows for visualization of the data on mobile devices and production displays. Due to the success of the system, IGear has now become the Advanced Traceability standard for all of JTEKT North America.

IGear’s CONNECT has helped Martinrea integrate real-time production information with our enterprise resource planning (ERP) system via its scalable and adaptive platform. When you sync shop floor data with ERP systems, everyone becomes part of the same team and proactive decision making becomes contagious.”
