24Flow and Manual.to announce joined offering for context-sensitive, multi-lingual work instructions
November 22, 2022 – Ghent – BELGIUM.
24Flow and Manual.to today announced the launch of their joint offering for context-sensitive, mult-lingual work instructions, providing manufacturing companies and their operators an easy way to create, update and consume digital work instructions.
24Flow is a modular cloud-based operations platform for discrete manufacturers. 24Flow provides a suite of low-code applications that empower manufacturers to gain real-time visibility and increase efficiency on the shopfloor, to attain better throughput times and a higher delivery reliability. 24Flow is a digital enabler for a company-wide growth strategy where these shorter throughput times create a competitive advantage in a fast-changing environment.
The combined offering of Manual.to and 24Flow shows operators the right digital work instructions at the right time, in an automated way. Contextualizing the work instructions saves time, avoids errors and increases overall efficiency.
As an example, when a machine produces an error code, the event is captured by 24Flow and 24Flow can immediately display the correct Manual.to work instruction to the operator on how to fix the issue, avoiding downtime or productivity loss.
Similarly, 24Flow is aware of the production context: it knows the work order, the customer and the operation that is currently being performed by the operator. Hence it is able to show the right instructions to the operator at the right time, without the operator needing to search for it.
Erik Dierinck, co-founder of 24Flow comments “This integrated offering between Manual.to and 24Flow addresses a real need on the factory floor. Contextualizing work instructions is the next step in achieving efficiency, avoiding errors and reducing machine downtime. It is a perfect example of 24Flow’s capability to provide real-time visibility on the shopfloor and to assist operators with digital tools that bring concrete value.“
Jorim Rademaker, CEO of Manual.to adds “Manual.to is a very powerful SaaS platform for digital work instructions. This cooperation with 24Flow allows us to address the needs of our customers even better by adding real-time, context-awareness.”
