Johnson Controls

(formerly Tyco Fire Protection Products)

Manufacturer of electronic security and fire protection products. The company has a portfolio of 4500 products and 8500 components. In 2016, Tyco became part of Johnson Controls.

Problems/Bottlenecks:

  • Isolated IT solutions for individual parts of the design and production process.
  • Complicated management of BOMs in connection with a large number of variants and customer modifications.
  • Transmission of information about product discrepancies and production problems back to development.
  • Communication between individual development centers.

Effects:

  • Manual rewriting of identical information between several systems – error generation.
  • Deviations in BOM structure between production and assembly due to manual transcription and different methodology (numbering of BOM items and their writing).
  • Time-consuming and difficult-to-track manual process.
  • Different systems to support the R&D process at different locations caused communication difficulties in relation to the development of new products.

Solution:

Implementation of ENOVIA PLM on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to support the process of introducing new products into production, their modification and deviation control. At present, 80 users are working in the system in 3 development centers (Czech Republic, UK and Germany) and in the production plant in the Czech Republic.

 

Benefits:

  • Replacing several IT systems with one central integrated PLM system, i.e. eliminating ineffective loss of time caused by rewriting identical information.
  • Promoting the process of change management and the process of introducing new products into production, reducing the time of these processes by 30%.
  • Unified user environment and online access to information for all users in all European locations.
  • Controlled process of transferring assembly BOMs to production BOMs with guaranteed unambiguous information for production planning purposes, i.e. eliminating errors in BOMs by 100%.

Our customers' opinions

Marcel Murar

Johnson Controls Development and Research Center Manager

“We required the new system to easily combine all data in one place. We also needed it to allow the specific set-up of internal processes such as ISS, LTB, etc. Considering the design, it was crucial for us to bring the new system closer to the original processes. All these requirements have been met by ENOVIA.”

Marek Ctrnacty

CATIA V5 Team, VOLKE Mladá Boleslav spol. s r.o.

“Years ago, we were looking for a way to extend CATIA V5 features and automate recurring engineer activities. We opted for automation using macros and we selected DYTRON as a supplier. This choice has proven to be a great solution. We especially value more than a decade of successful history, a highly cooperative partner and programmer. There’s nothing better than a high quality and lasting partnership.”

“Because ENOVIA has enabled us to manage data, or more precisely, all information through any number of links, this has meant that we always have the right information on hand, and thanks to the possibility of web access, we’re able to access this information anywhere at any time.

In our extreme job production (1,600 orders a year), ENOVIA has driven us forward in our important continuous improvement process by enabling us to collect feedback efficiently at many levels of the project implementation process, and to evaluate this information as an essential resource for improving quality and thus efficiency in future.”

Radek Kreml

Varroc Lighting Systems, s. r. o.

“Collaboration with DYTRON s.r.o. on developing CAD methodology has helped us to map and better understand the design procedures in the creation of the CAD model, and subsequently to optimize and standardize them.

The knowledge and deployment of the DYTRON expert and his structured, methodical approach were very beneficial. We are currently implementing the CAD methodology with the support of DYTRON, and we see its potential and a real contribution to making design work more efficient.”

Radek Valasek

Development Group Leader, BRANO a.s.

“The main benefit regarding construction was that we now have 100% order in the data. Previously, some designers stored data on their local drive, then another designer came in, needed to work on the data and took an older version. This stopped when we switched to ENOVIA. We have all the data in PLM, so the designer is always working with the latest data version or can see that someone else is working on it.

From a project management perspective, the greatest benefit is complete data management. Documents can be versioned, and we can see their history – who changed them, how and when. We have task management, so I can see if the task is "stuck" with someone or it’s going the way it’s supposed to. Thanks to ENOVIA we save 15-20% of time on a project, which is noticeable.”
