Increasing Factory Floor Visibility of KPIs at DS Smith Through an App-Integrated Digital Signage Solution
Redefining Packaging for a Changing World
In late 2020 sustainable packaging leader, DS Smith approached TrouDigital with a unique and exciting project to increase the visibility of real-time production KPIs for senior management.
DS Smith required critical and specific real-time production KPIs to be visible on both digital displays and on senior management mobile devices.
To meet DS Smith’s requirements, TrouDigital developed a custom app that would give senior management full visibility of real-time production KPIs where and when they needed them most.
Custom App Development
A new app displaying real-time production KPIs
Provided a stable and secure data handshake
Dynamic KPI Targets
Real-time data reacts to KPI targets live on screen
The Initial Goals
Before DS Smith’s initial inquiry, they were using Raspberry Pis, which were displaying outdated and unclear data dashboards. The senior managers needed a solution that was highly visual, easy to access, and gave live updates or production performance.
Before embarking on the project, DS Smith had some initial goals:
To give senior managers real-time visibility of uptime and performance of large-scale production equipment
Role-based user management of app and digital signage
Real-time feedback on data integration
The Digital Solution Implemented
To achieve Clyde Munro’s vision of an enhanced digital patient communication system within their practices, TrouDigital implemented the following:
Integrated 4K Android media Players to deploy real-time production KPIs on DS Smith’s screen network
Developed a custom app with a secure data handshake to visualise real-time production KPIs on screens and mobile devices
Provided ongoing support to ensure DS Smith have maximum uptime for their screen network and production KPIs
Key Benefits of Going Digital
After a successful project, TrouDigital helped DS Smith meet their goals and increase real-time production KPIs for senior management.
Here’s how DS Smith are reaping the benefits of TrouDigital software:
Senior managers now have real-time visibility of uptime and performance of large scale production equipment
Provide senior managers key areas of focus to maximise efficiency
Give real-time data to show uptime, machine performance, and targets
