Using 3DLean to Enable Collaboration & Innovation
Blog: Apriso Blog
Valmet, a global developer and supplier of process technologies, automation and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries, wanted to evolve its networked global production environment and support employees with modern working practices.
With a focus on organizational agility and lean operations, Valmet is rising to meet the challenges of the digital era by digitalization of the shop floor and connecting remote workers displaced by the global pandemic. As part of this, it has implemented DELMIA 3DLean and the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform.
The Sales and Operations Planning team at Valmet had previously held traditional manual meetings but found that they often missed key information and important tasks, even when meetings often overran their time limits. The Director of the team, Ari Linsuri, describes the impact of using DELMIA 3DLean:
“DELMIA 3DLean was the first solution that made it possible for us to have interactive discussions, supported by a clear agenda for the meeting and an action log, which stores and follows up on agreed actions. As soon as we deployed 3DLean, I noticed an immediate benefit.”
In addition to S&OP meetings, Valmet also saw how they could improve operations on the shop-floor with the same benefits. This included being able to track and delegate issues and actions while monitoring production status and key performance indicators.
Initially deployed prior to global pandemic, Valmet teams were able to sustain effective collaboration as in-person meetings were forced to transition to virtual environments. 3DLean provided a consistent environment and ability to collaborate effectively despite employees being displaced. Moving forward it will adapt to more hybrid environments to allow flexibility in the workplace.
Valmet continues to expand their use of DELMIA 3DLean to help boost employee engagement and support their digitalization strategy to sustain their competitive advantage.
