Company Description

The client ​uses on construction machinery, aircraft, and other highly specialized equipment must operate under extreme conditions, which demands that tires be manufactured with a particularly high level of technical expertise. 

Business Challenges

The client ​wants to rationalize its IT landscape and automate all processes in order to:

– Obtain a better end-to-end traceability of the tire in the factory
​- Enhance quality metrics to optimize all processes in the factory ​
– Optimize human resources and long-term and short-term planning

Overall Bridgestone want to setup an integrated solution which remains modular.

Our solution

​We did an audit of Factory departments of our client to understand :

  • Business processes and flows between units
  • Data architecture to understand the data domains, the master data and the discrepancies between the different units
  • Application architecture to understand what type of applications where in used
  • Technical architecture to understand the integration strategy and security in place, as well as the level of technical debt;

We produced an audit report and made some recommendations regarding the architecture vision and principles, applications to use, integration strategy and the expected return of investment  related to each work package and architecture patterns.
We also proposed a Business Intelligence strategy that is currently implemented for all factories of tour client worldwide.

Duration

The implementation of this project took 10 days.
