Driving Heavy Equipment Manufacturing Operations
Contact Our Team
With manufacturers facing the compounding challenge of recruitment, retention rates, and retirements, it’s never been more important to look toward digital solutions to address these issues. Industry leaders are partnering with Dozuki to overcome their obstacles by capturing internal expertise, improving standardization and training, and increasing worker retention.
Empower your frontline workers to train better, share expert knowledge, and execute their best work.
Shore up safety when operators train to actual frontline procedures
Heavy equipment manufacturing has never been more complex than it is today. From the massive components hoisted through assembly to the extreme temperatures of the forge, there is no room for operator error.
Ensure that even your newest operators are performing to exacting guidelines on the floor. Dozuki manages ongoing training of frontline workers on the procedures they are performing day to day, tracks competency, and automatically retrains them on your terms. Systematically address knowledge gaps and empower better operators.
Improve operations with the knowledge of your frontline
From your long established experts, to the new-hires with fresh eyes, significant untapped knowledge is available for improving and optimizing operations. Ideas for process improvement are too often undocumented, reticent to be shared, or lost when your information gatekeepers retire.
Dozuki incentivises your frontline to share knowledge and provide feedback on procedures – demonstrating their expertise, increasing sense of ownership, and helping you improve standards along the way. Process feedback can be put through review and approval workflows, where operations stakeholders can integrate it into updated standards.
Turn your standards into frontline training curriculum
Inefficient practices like job-shadowing and on-the-job training continue to be common training methods in heavy machinery. Both require an experienced mentor to be available for peer-to-peer coaching and in the end, the quality of training can be highly variable. Without a standardized system to manage training and knowledge transfer, best practices are left up to the experience, training technique and frankly, mood of each employee.
Turn the training instruction from your experts into standardized digital instructions in Dozuki, with video, images, and callouts. As the knowledge of your experts becomes your working standard – you can turn that information into your training curriculum. Standardize your training and scale it across your organization in one fell swoop.
Extract the knowledge of your frontline experts
With a mix of legacy equipment that’s been around for decades, and an influx of advanced technology making its way onto the frontline, expert knowledge has never been more in demand. When workers leave or retire, critical operations knowledge is walking out the door with them.
Dozuki provides a purpose-built system for capturing the knowledge of your experts in an incredibly easy fashion. Expert knowledge can be rapidly turned into digital working standards that can be scaled across shifts, departments and facilities.
“Dozuki gives technicians the information they need, where they need it.
“After comparing Dozuki to other options, it became a clear choice. The system is so intuitive and easy to kick-off... just like navigating a website.
“Our usual changeover took 4 hours, but the first time running it with Dozuki we did it in just 90 minutes. Plus we ran at 127% commit after the changeover, which usually runs at about 60%.
