Key Benefits of DNAam
“One of the biggest benefits of Valuchain’s DNAam to AM and EBM in particular is mass-customisation. Zenith takes orders from its largest customers where on a single purchase order there are quantities of over 100 different geometries to produce. No project is the same. This means the projects are front-heavy with a lot of data entry and programming to get the jobs underway. DNAam allows us to enter all of the data right from the RFQ stages and we never have to enter anything twice. All of the generated paperwork is templated by us so we have full control over the outputs and are able to make changes on the fly if necessary.”
From inception, jobs have a clear process that follows through the workshop and any subcontracting operations. A user has a touchscreen tablet to begin the operation, view process instructions, and sign off when complete.
“Zenith and customer procedures and specifications are linked to every step so users are only a few touches away from reading a procedure, specification, or work instruction. We’re able to see at a glance everything that is in the workshop, what stage it is up to, who did what, and how long it took. This is absolutely vital in ensuring quality procedures are followed for aerospace production and ensuring we have accurate KPIs to follow quality standards.”
DNAam captures workshop data as well as all of the subcontracting and laboratory testing data so that at the end of the process the certificate of compliance is generated automatically and no time is wasted preparing masses of paperwork.
