Manufacturing strategist HANZA Holding AB is expanding its partnership with the medical-technology company Getinge through the manufacturing of assembled mechanical parts for the company's ventilators and anesthesia machines. The new deal has an annual value of about 20 MSEK.

“We have a good cooperation with HANZA where they have become an important partner in the mechanical area for Getinge,” said Charlotta Elgström, Purchasing Manager at Getinge.

Getinge is a global supplier of innovative solutions for operating theaters, intensive care units and sterilization centers as well as companies and institutions in the Life Science industry. Getinge has over 10,000 employees and operates in more than 40 countries.

The new deal includes mounted mechanical systems and complements the existing deal that HANZA has with Getinge. Production is expected to start immediately and be fully operational during the last quarter of 2019.

“The extended collaboration with Getinge is additional acknowledgment of our strong business model,” said Thomas Lindström, Senior Vice President, Head of Business Solutions at HANZA. “More and more product companies see how we create value by streamlining the manufacturing industry with a focus on flexibility, total cost and environmental impact.”

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
