THE SMART FACTORY INITIATIVE- MANUFACTURING 2.0.
Responsive, Adaptive, Connected ManufacturingRESULTS
- CUSTOMERS get QUALITY Products
- CUTOMERS get Orders QUICKER
- CUSTOMERS get Products more ECONOMICAL
- CUSTOMERS get NEW features QUICKLY
- CUSTOMERS get quicker RESPONSE on SERVICE calls
Our SMART FACTORY Project is a leap forward from more traditional automation to a fully connected & flexible system—one that uses a constant stream of data from connected operations & production systems to LEARN and ADAPT to new demands.
RUSSAIR has implemented Integrated Computer Systems that connect CUSTOMERS to R&D Teams, Logistics Teams, Production Teams and the Account Management Teams- lays the foundation for how RussAir brings GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY
FIVE KEY FEATURES OF OUR SMART FACTORY INITATIVEASSET EFFICIENCY
Every aspect of the SMART FACTORY generates reams of data that, through continuous analysis, reveal asset performance issues that can require some kind of corrective optimization. Asset efficiency should translate into lower asset downtime, optimized capacity, and reduced changeover time, among other potential benefits.EFFICIENT MANUFACTURING
LOWER COST-Optimized processes traditionally lead to more cost-efficient processes—those with more predictable inventory requirements, more effective hiring and staffing decisions, as well as reduced process and operations variability.
LOWER COSTS MEANS ECONOMICAL BUT GOOD PRODUCTSQUALITY
The self-optimization that is characteristic of the SMART FACTORY can predict and detect QUALITY DEFECT trends sooner and can help to identify discrete human, machine, or environmental causes of poor quality. This could lower scrap rates and lead times, and increase fill rates and yield. A more optimized quality process could lead to a better-quality product with fewer defects and recalls.
BETTER PRODUCTS - LESS DEFECTIVE OUTPUTSAFETY AND SUSTAINABILITY
The SMART FACTORY HAS also imparted real benefits around labor wellness and environmental sustainability. The types of operational efficiencies that a SMART FACTORY HAS PROVIDED has resulted in a smaller environmental footprint than a conventional manufacturing process, with greater environmental sustainability overall. Greater process autonomy provides for less potential for human error, including industrial accidents that cause injury. The SMART FACTORY''S relative self-sufficiency has replaced certain roles that require repetitive and fatiguing activities. However, the role of the human worker in a SMART FACTORY environment has taken greater levels of judgment and on-the-spot discretion, which leads to greater job satisfaction and has reduced labour turnover.

RUSSAIR has implemented the SMART FACTORY in many different ways — both inside and outside the four walls of the factory—and reconfigure it to adjust as existing priorities change or new ones emerge. In fact, one of the most important features of the SMART FACTORY — AGILITY
—also presents us with multiple options to leverage digital and physical technologies depending on their specific needs.
Far from being an “END STATE
,” the SMART FACTORY is an EVOLVING SOLUTION
for RussAir — WE ARE IN THE CONSTANT STATE OF IMPLEMENTATION & IMPROVEMENTS.
RUSSAIR has invested in a SMART FACTORY capability to enable ITSELF to DIFFERENTIATE
in an ever-more complex and rapidly shifting ecosystem.
