2019 Winner Profile


Project Description:
Pierce, an Oshkosh Corporation Company, is a global market leader in fire apparatus. Each vehicle is highly customized, with no trucks having the exact same product configuration. Historically, manufacturing employees would have to navigate through over 25 systems and sift through hard-copy binders to find critical build information. The Pierce Truck Builder portal, built internally, provides a one-stop shop of digitized build information for over 1,500 manufacturing team members. This system displays build instructions, with additional information like bill of materials, drawings, and sales options easily accessible. The project also tracks overall build progress and other key metrics to improve processes and triggers key quality reviews throughout the manufacturing process. So far Truck Builder has logged 65,000 hours in annual time savings and a reduction in employee onboarding from two weeks to eight hours.
