Building a Customized Digital Performance Platform

When Danfoss, a leading Danish manufacturing company, needed an enhanced overview of their production processes, they turned to Emendo Digital for assistance. Our team designed a solution addressing the company’s specific needs, unlocking valuable insights through available data to enhance operational efficiency and competitiveness.

Industry:Manufacturing
Year:2023
Customer:Danfoss

The Challenge

Many larger companies experience difficulties when dealing with substantial amounts of data, making it challenging to implement process improvements. In this case, Danfoss saw the potential of a more digitalized and effective production overview to better prioritize potential improvements. The goal was to collect and analyze key parameters presenting them through intuitive dashboards and KPI measurements. This approach offers Danfoss a clearer overview of production processes, enabling faster and more effective decision-making.

The Approach

Designing a custom solution

To provide an overview of production processes and enable fast and effective decision-making, we proposed a solution tailored to the specific requirements and objectives of Danfoss. In collaboration with Factbird, who provided a data collection tool, we leveraged historical data and offered different data views depending on the user’s role within the company. Through close collaboration with both end users and stakeholders, we ensured the solution aligned with the needs and expectations of end users. We used a 5-step process to develop and customize the solution to fit Danfoss’ exact needs.

Data, Production Processes & Stakeholder Involvement

1. Identifying data landscape:  

The first step was to identify the existing data landscape for relevant data sources within Danfoss. We reviewed and analyzed the available data sources, including production, inventory, machine status, and other relevant parameters.

2. Understanding processes:

After identifying the data landscape, we aimed for a deeper understanding of Danfoss’ production processes and workflow. To do this we spent time on the shop floor to understand the specifics of what the solution would be supporting and how.

3. Early stakeholder involvement:

An integral part of our approach was early involvement of relevant stakeholders to ensure that the design fit the needs of the user. Through meetings and workshops with employees at different levels and from various departments, we gathered their input and expectations.

4. Solution development:  

Using our knowledge of the data landscape, processes, and stakeholder input, we developed a customized solution. This solution features a performance dashboard presenting relevant KPIs and measurements in an intuitive and easily understandable manner.

5. Deploy & Handover:  

After completing the solution, we conducted testing to ensure everything functioned as expected. Once approved, we ensured a proper handover transferring the responsibility to the end users.

The Results

By identifying and leveraging the untapped potential of their data, Danfoss unlocked valuable insights, facilitating informed decision-making, and resulting in a more efficient and competitive operation.

The solution has been effectively employed in monitoring direct electric consumption, allowing for the shutdown of machinery during standby periods and the potential reduction of electric usage.
