American Biltrite is a manufacturing company established in 1913 in Sherbrooke, Quebec. It has two business divisions: commercial floor coverings and industrial rubber. There are several production stages that are not mechanically linked.
Today, several parameters influence the production, which becomes more and more complex to manage and makes it impossible to have a vision of more than one week. This causes staff turnover and order rejections.
American Biltrite sought to understand and identify acceptable technology solutions in conjunction with AS400 to reduce effort, improve processes and optimize the results generated with a monthly view.
Develop with existing technologies, a solution that can generate a single schedule and integrate artificial intelligence
Set up a Center of Excellence to improve the parameters that influence before automating in vain
American Biltrite now knows what is feasible and cost-effective to do by capitalizing on the systems already in place.
Satisfaction and achievement of objectives
Satisfaction with interventions
NSI was able to understand and integrate with our company in order to identify the best solutions for our existing systems and thus improve what is limiting our organization, namely the orchestration of our production, which has become increasingly complex and difficult to optimize by simplifying it and integrating artificial intelligence.
We really enjoyed working with the NSI team and its partner ExplorAI. The solutions are easy to understand, achievable and accessible.
I recommend NSI without hesitation.
