Mi-Forms Eliminates Paper Forms Inefficiencies at Cataler North America
Cataler North America (CNA), a subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation, is a leading manufacturer of automotive catalysts used in catalytic converters. CNA processes ceramic substrates to prepare the catalysts, a process which includes the application of various finishing materials. The proper application of these materials is of the utmost importance to their production process.
The Powder operation is extremely critical to effective and quality production at CNA. Important data collection processes are required at every stage of production.
Assistant IT Manager Chris Painter and Systems Administrator Charles “Chuck” Watkins saw serious inefficiencies in collection and analysis of this critical data, collected via paper check sheet forms that were used to verify the correct concentrations of the slurry. They chose Mi-Co’s Mi-Forms electronic forms solution to improve their data collection and analysis process because they felt that Mi-Co had a proven track record, having successfully implemented mobile data collection solutions in a variety of industries. CNA also felt that Mi-Forms was the only technology that could give their lab personnel the real-time interactive access to forms data that is needed across different departments in the company.
