Dow Corning Honored for Implementation of Automated Solutions

Dow Corning, a world leader in silicone and silicon-based applications, has won the 2010 Progressive Manufacturing 100 (PM100) award.

Dow Corning received this award for their efforts to move their global manufacturing sites to automated solutions, using a new platform called Electronic Work Instructions (EWI).

The PM 100 award is given by US-based Managing Automation to companies that are implementing cutting edge technology, thus rethinking their business processes and relationships with customers, helping create new business value for greater success now and into the future.

Dow Corning’s new EWI platform helps automate supply chain processes that transfer data to and from mobile devices on the plant floor.  The automation helps eliminate errors, increase operator effectiveness, improve long-term archiving, compliance, and auditing of information. In addition, this platform also provides real-time alerts, improves asset utilizations and dramatically helps improve customer response times.

“The PM100 recognition highlights the EWI platform that drives out non-value activities, helps ensure employee safety, improves product quality, and drives supply chain productivity,” said Keith Carey, Manufacturing Operations Automation Manager in Global Manufacturing Automation. “Our collaborative approach leveraging  our manufacturing sites expertise and  automation industry experts has been critical to our overall success.”
