Agilent Technologies
Application Agilent Technologies was formed in 1999 from the former Hewlett-Packard test and measurement, chemical analysis, semiconductor components and medical products businesses.
Agilent Technologies uses an Intranet and the Internet to support its product development teams.
Teams located in different parts of the world share data and information and practice design reuse to save development time.
The collaborative environment is also used to help achieve a cross-functional perspective, with marketing, design and manufacturing sharing data and information.
The application helps to save time and money as a result of less travel and improved communications leading to fewer misunderstandings and the resulting rework.
Illustrates The use if the Internet and an Intranet to improve communications between geographically distributed teams engaged in product development, and also to improve cross-functional working.
Clyde Blowers
Application Clyde Blowers, an engineering company, manufactures products such as the tools used to clean the insides of coal-fired power station boilers.
It has manufacturing plants in Europe, the US, China and India.
The company has been using the Internet for a number of purposes.
Document exchange and e-mail are used based on Lotus Notes (a widely used group working software tool) and video conferencing software is used to enable face to face meetings, thus helping to reduce travel costs.
Also, the firm uses Lotus Notes to track customer enquires, so that firms throughout the group can see what is going on thus helping to avoid the situation where firms within the group are competing with each other for the same business.
Illustrates The use of the Internet to improve communications between geographically distributed parts of the firm and to increase co-ordination of activities.
Frigomechanica
Application Frigomeccanica is a small Italian company that designs, assembles, installs and maintains freezing and defrosting machines, drying cells and other in-process and post-process treatment cells for the food industry (ham, salami, meat, cheese, etc.).
Frigomeccanica's markets, clients and network of sales agents are geographically distributed all over the world.
It is common for clients to demand customised machines as well as continuous, cost-effective and efficient support during the entire working life of the machine, from pre-sales assistance, to installation and post-sales support.
Frigomeccanica's equipment is always tailor-made to meet the needs of each individual customer.
Many unforeseen problems have to be faced at the machine installation stage and during the initial period of use at the customer sites.
Huge costs are usually incurred to assist customers on-site during these phases.
Here, the problem solving process is based heavily on the skills and knowledge of a small number of very experienced technicians, who are forced to rush around the world in order to ensure the necessary customer support, and their expertise represents a scarce and critical resource.
Hence modern communication technologies such as desk-top video conferencing operating over the Internet are being investigated and piloted to support pre and post sales support without increasing the price to the customer.
Illustrates Using the Internet to increase the productivity of skilled employees by making their expertise more accessible without the need for expensive and time consuming journeys.
GKN
Application GKN, a British engineering company that manufactures among other things automotive components, is using its Intranet as a knowledge management tool.
The objective is to enable knowledge about manufacturing techniques, normally communicated within a single plant, to be made available throughout the group, thus reducing duplication of problem solving and also unnecessary capital expenditure on eliminating problems that may have a simpler solution discovered elsewhere but not communicated company wide.
In addition to sharing explicit knowledge such new ideas generated at each of its plants, GKN is also expecting that tacit knowledge will be shared.
Illustrates Knowledge sharing between geographically separated parts of a large firm using the Internet as the prime means of communication.
