Traditionally, paper work instructions or also called paper travelers, are used within manufacturing. They have all the necessary steps to complete an assembly. Typically there are 1D barcodes at different steps that are to be scanned into the information system. There are a few issues which the manufacturing world has had to just deal with as it was normal.

  • A team is responsible for keeping the paper traveler up-to-date
  • Changes in the paper traveler go through change management involving multiple people.
  • Complex parts require CAD drawings or schematics attached to the paper traveler. Did engineering update them recently?
  • Issues are red-lined by the worker, is there a process to put these red-lines into the change management process?
  • Issues during assembly are written on a whiteboard or on a separate paper. Are these recorded issues reported to supervisors in a timely manner?
  • Workers need to learn what they need to look at a paper traveler and every change afterwards.
  • Cycle time per process is tracked in another system, if at all. 
  • Training is done by another process and supervisor for each step of the assembly.
  • Quality check steps are handwritten on the paper traveler. Quality has to read poor handwriting, and at times may have to check with the worker to verify.
  • None of this data is digitized for future analysis.

This is how manufacturing has been done for decades, a Digital Work Instruction system also called a Digital Traveler can solve all the traditional issues and increase collaboration, provide real-time visibility, improve product quality, ensure always up-to-date instructions, digitize quality data and reduce chances of errors throughout all manufacturing processes. The Digital Traveler can typically be integrated with a workers badge access card to log in/out of a process, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Machine Vision Cameras, and much more, allowing the worker to be more productive and catch errors early reducing scrap and rework. Our experts work with your Continuous Improvement, Operation Technology and Information Technology teams to integrate a Digital Traveler and other technologies that can provide immediate benefits.
