TRW Automotive Systems Selects Singlepoint for shopfloor document control solution

Earlier this year, TRW Automotive Systems Ltd, based in Houghton-le-Spring near Sunderland UK, selected Singlepoint for a major project that will involve importing thousands of "Build Standard" documents and will be rolled out to all users across the plant. Implementation is now complete and the system went operational as planned in the Summer. We plan to bring you an in-depth case study in the first half of 2011.

"Build Standard" documentation covers anything that can effect the manufacture of the product, such as drawings, control plans, process flows, process FMEA's, first off reports and standard operating procedures (SOP's).

The current system is part paper-based and part electronic, with thousands of documents spread across a variety of servers, directories and folders. Finding the correct document is a time-consuming exercise. In deploying Singlepoint, the Quality team at TRW hope to greatly reduce the time is takes end users to find the correct document and reduce their own time in ensuring revision control.

Singlepoint document control is build on the SharePoint platform but comes with all the required document control functionality already built-in. TRW chose Singlepoint after considering developing their own solution on SharePoint but could see they would save time and money by not duplicating work in developing the same functionality that we have already created.

We look forward to working with the team at TRW and to bringing you further news of this major project.
