DIG:ITA meets Gruppo Gaser

GASER GROUP is a company specializing in surface treatments on metal.

Gaser β€” Eredi di Bonacina Mario is specialized in the zinc plating and zinc-nickel plating of mechanical parts. Thanks of performing both frame and barrel treatments. Lots of combinations of passivation and sealant combination are applicable. The ability to abide by short lead times and the highly quality consistency standards are two of our mainstays. A fully-fledged, internal logistical service rounds up Gaser Group’s range of strengths.

β€œWe support our partners in the management of surface treatments. Our mission is to overcome their most ambitious expectations by providing a complete, punctual service and at the same time offering constant innovation…” β€” Gianni Franzosi β€” Gruppo GASER CEO

DIGITAL transformation at Eredi Bonacina Site

DIG:ITA met GASER GROUP more than three years ago and since then the benefits of the Digital Transformation are being reaped starting for Gaser β€” Eredi di Bonacina Mario site.

Gaser - Eredi di Bonacina Mario consists of 4 production lines, dealing with galvanic treatments, and a purification line for a total of 5 lines that are part of Mosaico workspace and therefore affected by Industry 4.0.

β€œWe are proud to work with GASER GROUP , collecting production data, analyzing it, putting insights into practice and improving its manufacturing processes.” β€” Edoardo Cella DIGITA CDO

In Gaser - Eredi di Bonacina Mario, several steps had to be followed to achieve full awareness of a Digital Transformation.

Let’s start with a Maturity model

To start with, we carried out a requirements analysis of each installation which we called MATURITY MODEL.

The MATURITY MODEL aims at evaluating the current state of any industrial plant and the production process, identifying the potential points of intervention, choosing the right set of operating solutions with particular reference to technical and technological upgrades, safety and Industry 4.0.

In Gaser - Eredi di Bonacina Mario each Maturity Model created, for each of the 5 lines subsequently connected, was made to implement a MOSAICO Workspace around each production line.

Implementing Mosaico Workspace

Mosaico Workspace is a more flexible workplace, where you can take advantage of the people inside and outside your organization, where analytics and modelling have the power to give people more opportunities to experiment and improve their ability to make decisions.

The first step implementing MOSAICO was to connect the information highlighted into the MATURITY MODEL related each production line with the humans workforce and with #iDO digital operator, allowing each one to speak with each others and with the plant & machines itself.

Digital transformation in action

Digital transformation is the transformation of business activities, processes, products, and models to fully leverage the opportunities of digital technologies. The main goal is to improve efficiency, manage risk or discover new monetization opportunities. Digital transformation is doing things in a new (digital) way.

On Gaser plants, the merge between information technology and operational competences turned the power of digital transformation into action resulting a drastic improvement in plant operation, reduction of plant alarms and operational downtime.

With straightforward actionable insights, comprehensive dashboards, and real-time alerts and notifications, MOSAICO solution empowered GASER people to make data-driven decisions and achieve improvement in OEE in a matter of weeks.

The digital transformation also involved a paradigm shift, considering man no longer as the only element necessary for the production of products, but as part of a complex and collaborative system between men and machines.

β€œThe operators involved in the MOSAICO workspace are considered part of a large family that wants to work well in the pursuit of continuous improvement with passion and personal recognition.” β€” Edoardo Cella DIG:ITA CDO

Knowledge that is easily accessible and understandable to all.

The pro-active participation of Team Gaser has led to the creation of an accessible and shared knowledge among all those involved, thanks to the collaborative tools available within MOSAICO. This meant that information, documents and activities relating to each machine or each stage of the production process were quickly and easily accessible.
Digital and human services

#iDO β€” industrial digital operator

DIG:ITA created a digital workforce equipment with a set of Digital Competences, in the sense of the set of knowledge, skills, attitudes, abilities and strategies, that are required when we are using Information and Communications Technology and digital media

Working within MOSAICO Digital workspace #iDO identify many recurring problems on the plant.

This enable GASER to focus their resources on managing and resolving problem, reducing the impact on production.

Performance and Reliability Services

The Performance & Reliability TEAM helps close the gap between powerful new technology and maintenance engineers on the ground β€” between great software and people who have to turn a wrench.

Through continuous discussion with the customer we identify new needs that we can satisfy with very specific data analysis, or that can be provided with a notification service, through the use of our algorithms, generating new information that arrives directly to selected users on mobile devices.

Available documentation and the integration of the various components

Monthly stand-up meeting

With Gaser we meet every month to analyse what has been reported and analyzed within MOSAICO on each line. In this way it is possible to focus attention on the events that have characterized each production line in order to plan a method of evaluating and resolving the various problems that arise.

Luca Signorelli β€” DIG:ITA data scientist

β€œPerformance and Reliability Services not only allows human relations to be maintained and enhanced, but also to understand each other, to pause and to take time to look at the project as a whole.”

DIG:ITA for sustainability

This new feature aims to Improve progressively global resource efficiency in consumption and production and endeavor to decouple economic growth from environmental degradation.
