Sigma Technology’s Role and Responsibility
Sigma Technology information engineers have conducted SPI (System, Process and Information) analysis of the client’s products. The findings from the analysis helped the team to create a structured concept for information storage and distribution.
Sigma Technology information engineers populated a content database with the relevant product information for Toyota Material Handling’s different logistics solutions.
Sigma Technology team has created a Single Source of Truth for Toyota Material Handling using DocFactory CMS. The platform is used for management and distribution of technical information.
All Toyota technical information is now available through the web-based portal in DocFactory that is easily accessible from any device. All information updates are seamless and maintenance time for the information distribution and management is optimized. Toyota Material Handling uses DocFactory for all parts of their automation solution, including AGV, peripheral components, server software, and support services.
