The Mike-Sells team is extremely pleased with the results of the project and the overall positive impact to our manufacturing operations. Many thanks to the UDRI/FastLane team for their support and involvement with the project!
FastLane and the third-party solution provider worked with Mike-Sell's staff to determine that replacing the same bar code scanner was not the best solution. Instead, a new bar code scanner/PLC was installed, which provides additional functionality and aids the production operational metrics including improved scanning accuracy, new visual display dashboard providing throughput tracking and a 24-hour support line. Working with FastLane and the third-party integrator allowed Mike-Sells to have a smooth integration with a vertical start-up, resulting in a positive impact to both production and operations.
