The client request
A regular client of ours required 2600 connection panels in 13 different sizes, designs and layouts and numerous connector configurations. Each panel required not only a unique number to be engraved on on the corner but also a unique number for each connector on the panel (in excess of 7500 connectors (10 different types)). The initial request was to provide just the unpopulated panels.
The AVS solution
We foresaw that this was quite a complex requirement, with lots of careful logistics and handling required to ensure that the correct connectors were fitted to right panels, with the right engraving. We therefore undertook the scope of work to manufacture the metal blanks, to paint, engrave and populate the panels with connectors. We finally labeled and package them into site installation zones, thus making the clients job easier and reducing the risk of errors.
How we did it
We created a database linking panel types engraving and connectors
The panels were CNC punched from the CAD files with check counts referenced to the database.
A database link was created to the CNC engraving oftware so that each panel could be engraved in sequence and the database update to show the progress status
The database created an inventory of connectors and fixing screws that were kitted ready for assembly
The assembly was performed in groups as the panels completed the engraving process.
Labels for each panel and each site area box were printed from the database and as the panels completed assembly, they were bagged and labelled, the labels provided a check list as each panel was completed.
The panels were boxed by site zone with a label on the box cross referencing the quantities and specific panels in each box.
Finally we delivered them on time, filling our VW Transporter from back to front, floor to ceiling with boxes.
The clients feedback
AVS did a fantastic job of recognizing what was required to make our job easier, executing it to perfection and as the result the site installation and logistics were made simple
