KONE – 3P aplication (Lean management)

  • Client:KONE
  • Released:December 2014

Challange

KONE is one of the global leaders in the elevator and escalator industry. KONE developed Access application for their internal use to support 3P method (Production Preparation Process). The application is customized for their factory in Ústí nad Labem (list of employees, production lines, etc.). We were asked to create couple of new features in the current application (e.g. automatic email reporting, new Abnormality type – KAIZEN, etc.). The current functionality had to be preserved and we were asked to improve the performance.

Mockup KONE – 3P aplication (Lean management)

Solution

The application was built on Microsoft Access 2010 platform with Microsoft SQL Server database server backend. We had to learn all processes in the application in order to preserve and test the original functionality. By simplifying and optimizing the queries, we successfully managed to speed up the whole application and to make the user experience better.

Customer benefit

At the end of the project we proceeded with upgrades with backward compatibility and following new features:

  • Output report grouped by shifts and assembly lines
  • New KAIZEN abnormality
  • Automatic email notifications
  • Better performance
