Parsable/Honeywell effort aims to optimize assembly lines

May 20, 2019

Parsable announced the expansion of its collaboration with Honeywell to digitize and streamline the production of auxiliary power units (APUs). With Parsable’s Connected Worker Platform, Honeywell is gaining visibility into the human-led work done across its complex manufacturing operations, capturing critical data insights to drive continuous improvement, work precision and product excellence, according to Parsable.

As part of the initial rollout, Honeywell is leveraging Parsable’s Connected Worker Platform to turn paper-based work instructions into dynamic digital procedures on mobile devices. With this new, real-time transparency into work being done on the assembly line, Honeywell has access to powerful data and greater levels of granularity, enabling management teams to more precisely identify and eliminate issues, bottlenecks and other blockers, further optimizing productivity, quality and safety on the floor, according to Parsable.

Honeywell also is using Parsable for faster, easier collaboration among employees to reduce wait times. It also is providing more robust methods for on-the-spot learning on the production floor, including video training.

“We see a huge opportunity in connecting our assembly workforce to each other and breaking down silos, creating a seamless and continuously measured process for executing work,” said Mike Madsen, vice president, integrated supply chain at Honeywell Aerospace. “The insights that Parsable is helping us uncover have been critical to driving continuous improvement and efficiencies across our teams. We look forward to scaling our collaboration even further.”

“Honeywell has long been a leader in aerospace and has succeeded by continually looking for new ways to optimize its processes,” said Lawrence Whittle, Parsable CEO. “Parsable's Connected Worker Platform has been key in helping Honeywell Aerospace to accelerate production, and improve quality and safety. We are proud of our association with Honeywell and look forward to our continued collaboration to transform the way humans, machines and business systems interact on the assembly line.”
