Pekin, IL-based PAL Health Technologies reports that taking its fabrication management mobile has resulted in a 13% increase in productivity and 2% reduction in internal product rejects after six months.
PAL Health’s production data software for Apple’s iPad allows managers to bring important information with them to the manufacturing floor, increasing communication, availability of real- time metrics, and employee productivity. PAL’s information technology department built the software, which is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
“We now have a truly custom solution for over 54 individual manufacturing stations,” said PAL Health Technologies’ Chair Jeff Schoenfeld. “Our manufacturing process is unique and extremely difficult because each orthotic order is different, therefore customized. This development was crucial to meet our client demands of product perfection and tight delivery time.”
