Manufacturing and Revision
Consider a scenario where one large engine manufacturer has a machine revision and maintenance plant. Whenever one of the company’s engines needs inspection or repair, customers send the engine to the plant for complete disassembly, analysis, and reassembly.
This is an extremely delicate, end-to-end process. As part of the revision, technicians take apart the entire engine down to the tiniest screw. They examine every engine component for wear and tear, reconditioning parts as needed before reassembling the engine.
If the team misplaces even one piece, the entire revision process can suffer delays. What’s more, depending on if and when they find the part, the lost piece can increase costs and potentially even present a security risk.
