Streamlining Order Processing With New WIP Dashboard

Donghua, a leading manufacturer in the chain sector, announces the installation of a new electronic work in progress (WIP) dashboard aimed at streamlining the way orders are processed and monitored within its Wolverhampton chain workshop.

The newly introduced WIP Dashboard provides real-time visualisation of the chain orders in progress, offering comprehensive insights into each stage of the production process. From picking and cutting to assembly, preloading, lubrication, quality checks and dispatch, the dashboard visually displays the number of orders in the pipeline at every stage facilitating efficient order tracking and management.

One of the key features of the WIP Dashboard is its seamless integration with wearable technology. Equipped with tablets worn by workshop staff, the system enables easy updating of the dashboard, ensuring that the information displayed is always up-to-date. This integration not only enhances data accuracy, but also promotes real-time communication amongst the team, including the sales team who also have a copy of the WIP dashboard screen in the office.

Bob Wellsbury, managing director at Donghua Limited, said: “We’re thrilled to introduce our new WIP Dashboard as a solution to empower the team with instant visibility of the status of orders. It will help us to further optimise workflows, identify bottlenecks, and ultimately deliver an improved service to our customers.”

The introduction of the WIP Dashboard underpins Donghua’s dedication to innovation and continuous improvement in all aspects of their operations.
