Wärtsilä: Visual Workinstructions

Visual work instructions safeguard knowledge and simplify knowledge transfer
Business challenges
Wärtsilä wants to be able to produce a wide range of products throughout the world. Flexibility is a priority. This requires a global uniform way of working to optimize process control. 
Keys to success
Better work instructions improve process control. Step-by-step, visual and interactive instructions with simple use of language and references to underlying technical documentation.
  • Shorter learning times in pilot projects;
  • Significantly improved product quality due to better process control;
  • Lower maintenance and guarantee costs.
“We achieve quality by defining standard work and documenting the work processes in uniform work instructions that can be understood everywhere. Work instructions are essential for process control. And process control is essential because it has been proven to generate cost savings.” says Edgar Snelders, General Manager Manufacturing Technology Services.
“Cortona3D is a multi-faceted application that can be used to create manuals, work instructions, training modules and catalogues. Up until now we have concentrated primarily on producing work instructions but we are also planning to use it to create training modules. Our Services Department is also very interested in using Cortona3D to produce service-related work instructions or manuals and is monitoring the developments in the current project within Wärtsilä.”  Anton van de Wiel, Development Expert at MTS
