Meet Terry McKinney, director of Digital Transformation for Shiloh Industries. Shiloh Industries is an automotive supplier of ultra-lightweight structural technologies, electrification solutions, stamped metal systems, and driver control systems. Shiloh’s highly-engineered solutions reduce CO2 emissions and material waste while enhancing vehicle safety. Their most recent expansion in North America is a state-of-the-art manufacturing site for electric vehicle battery enclosures.
A series of company acquisitions left Shiloh operating a variety of disparate systems, and the lack of visibility and cohesion amongst these systems was impacting manufacturing. “We had seven different ERP systems and none of them talked to each other. The data was inconsistent from plant to plant and using that data was difficult,” Terry explains. “We spent more time looking for the right data, cleaning it and making sure it was correct for decision-making than we did capturing the data.”
To remedy this situation, Shiloh built a manufacturing platform that has the capability to manage business operations. This system has been rolled out at 15 North American facilities to date.
