Industry 4.0 : the key to revolutionize the manufacturing process
Lectra suggested its single-ply Furniture on Demand solution. By implementing Furniture on Demand into their production workflow, Jakobsen Home benefits from the most advanced Industry 4.0 technology. It provides the company with the IT system connectivity they desire and the agility to produce customized furniture their customers want.
Jakobsen Home was able to easily connect Furniture on Demand to its new ERP and MES systems as well as the warehouse roll management system. This has allowed the company to automate and streamline its processes as well as reduce fabric waste. It has also helped them retain and recruit employees.
Jakobsen Home is able to master the entire furniture production process, from conception to final product, by working with in-house as well as select external designers and manufacturing in their own factory. This allows the company to create a wide range of models--using over 500 different textiles and leathers--that are thoroughly tested for functionality, comfort and durability. Mixing and matching all of the different types of textiles, along with different furniture types, is Jakobsen Home’s specialty.
Connectivity, sustainability and employee satisfaction with furniture on demand
Seamless connectivity between the Furniture on Demand digital platform and Jakobsen Home’s IT systems enable the brand to streamline processes and optimize resources.
