Why Siemens Gamesa chose Fluix?
Full-scope Control of Company Workflow
Fluix has allowed Siemens to have a greater oversight of the whole document control process both onshore and offshore. There is now the capability of updating a document instantaneously in a cloud folder and get it synchronized across thousands of technicians' iPads with no intervention. This has many benefits when ensuring technical documentation is kept up-to-date but even more so when looking from a safety perspective where it is vital the technicians are working to the correct method statements and approved work procedures.
Furthermore, Fluix ensures that Siemens’s documentation always remains secure and follows the pre-defined workflow process. It is now possible to differentiate how documents are controlled for Siemens’s contractors and how they are controlled for the company’s employees. This is important for such a large company, which works collaboratively, but also needs to respect intellectual property and security.
Ensuring Quality and Minimizing Costs
Fluix completely removes the need to email completed checklists, which run the risk of not being handled correctly. The technicians do not have to configure anything work-related on their own any longer; everything is set up by dedicated people in Siemens with granular controls to the Fluix account. Aside from improving the control of documentation it also improves the quality of the work completed.
Prior to deploying Fluix there were often rework and non-conformance costs due to documentation not being completed fully or legible. Handwritten checklists and the requirement to flick through pages and pages of manuals were time consuming and added no value to our customers. Fluix helped to remove this non-value adding work and minimize how much time it takes.
Flexible and Customizable Service
One of the greatest benefits of Fluix for Siemens is the way it can be customized: whether it be storing documents and access to them, sharing options, defining network drives or password protection, or any other aspect that you would want to control or change. Moreover, the service gives the flexibility to increase or decrease licensing as one goes along, adding more employees to the system.
This way you are able to move at the pace of your implementation instead of being forced into big upfront costs before having the chance to pilot and review the benefits.
