Industry 4.0: Weigang AG
Digital production control with QuWiki
For over 90 years, WEIGANG AG has been producing solutions that always focus on people. “Reducing complexity, promoting communication or using our products — it doesn’t work without people,” says Georg Jahn, third-generation board member.
After the positive experiences with digital Kanban for the supply of C-items, Weigang ventured the next digital step into manufacturing.
As a manufacturer of organizational tools such as planning boards, moderation techniques, and customized products, you naturally know a lot about lean management and use it in your company. Nevertheless, it is also challenging for an “analog” hardware supplier to step towards Industry 4.0.
The QuWiki solution convinced Georg Jahn immediately. “Because this concept perfectly matches our own products and our mission of lean processes,” he says. The in-house solution was developed and implemented with the process specialists at AGIMERO GmbH.
“With QuWiki and our own “neo” planning system, we now have a coherent overall system,” says CEO Georg Jahn.
“For WEIGANG AG, it is a first step into digitized manufacturing.”
