It looks like the control tower at an airport, but it isn't. It's the Seat Control Tower in its Logistics Centre, a new system to ensure that the data linked to the 16 million parts needed every day to make around 2,300 cars is transmitted in real time.
In just 26 weeks, a groundbreaking project took shape at the Seat Logistics Centre that uses an app to monitor the exact location in real time of each of the parts that go into making a car, in connection with production needs.
«This will be the first time that Seat will have real-time information on the flow of material, transit operation alerts and production material consumption. Information that used to take hours and several phone calls to obtain will now be updated in seconds» said the director of the project David Castilla.
The goal of this system is to reduce time of orders delivery in the near future.
