Reborn 21 is a global initiative launched by DENSO CEO Arima earlier this year to rapidly change our company in terms of quality and the way we work. Technology is playing a large part in Reborn 21 and helping to transform DENSO for the future.
In the Electronic Products Division at DENSO Manufacturing Tennessee (DMTN), software called Jarvis is empowering front line leaders with information they need to make better decisions and free up time to focus on safety, quality, productivity and delivery.
“Jarvis reduces the workload of our front line leaders,” said John Wesner, Manager, DMTN Production Maintenance. “Where they would manually enter production data every hour or so, now technology does it automatically and they can really concentrate on running the business and solving problems.”
A focus of Reborn 21 is the utilization of technology and helping DENSO move faster, produce more efficiently and eliminate redundant and/or needless work. Front line leaders took ownership of the project from the very beginning, helping move Jarvis from concept to production.
“We started this project almost two years ago. It was Reborn before Reborn,” said Wesner. “We need to continually improve, it’s the only way for us to succeed.” Jarvis doesn’t stop with EP either; plans are in place to move across campus into other divisions.
