OTRS10 - Software Solutions for Operations Analytics

OTRS Introduction Video short ver.

  • Common Challenge 1

    How can we optimize the
    productivity at our workplace?

    We want to increase the efficiency and productivity at our workplace but we're not sure where to begin.

    Comparative analysis helps you eliminate waste
    and learn effective strategies

    Through comparison of videos from your current workplace with videos that have been analyzed previously or have been taken of experienced workers, it becomes easier to identify and remove impractical, unimportant and irregular work patterns. It also becomes easier to visually share these differences without the need for confusing documents or explanations.

  • Common Challenge 2

    How can we achieve efficiency
    from analyzing our work

    We do time study though the measuring
    method depends on workers. Consuming
    lots of time, the collected data is fluctuated
    and does not produce a desired effect.

    Simple video capturing allow easy access for your workers to achieve the best possible efficiency

    Videos in OTRS can be easily shared and viewed by workers so they can discover where impractical, unimportant and irregular work patterns occur. With access to examples of ideal work patterns and the ability to see how different work patterns affect time management, OTRS can lead to a substantial difference in worker productivity.

  • Common Challenge 3

    How can we pass on skills and
    train our workers to become

    Passing on useful skills to workers, training newcomers and workers from overseas, and creating multi-skilled workers in an efficient manner is much more difficult than we thought.

    Create video manuals to visually communicate skills and techniques

    Using the results from your work analysis, it is a simple process to turn this data into an operations manual with videos or step-by-step procedures. It is particularly useful in showing minute details that cannot be conveyed simply through words or photographs. With the option to also include narration over videos, it is a smooth process to even share this information at overseas workshops or for training foreigners.

OTRS Effectiveness through Numbers

  • Time spent on task analysis Reduced by 50%

    Case Study:
    Automotive Manufacturer

    “We previously measured all our work with a stopwatch but we would have to repeat the process many times to work out a correct measurement to analyze. With OTRS and its easy-to-use interface*, we can speed-up footage and also look at it frame-by-frame, making analysis of videos from our workplace a simple and speedy process.“

    *The OTRS10 interface is a registered design.

  • Production output per day 108→150

    Case Study:
    Construction Materials

    “Using OTRS and its ability to create simulations of our work processes from videos*, we were able to find ways to improve our work patterns to complete tasks more smoothly and without creating bottlenecks. Through use of the simulation tool that allows us to see how we can rearrange our operations, we even managed to find a new way to approach how we completed tasks. This drastically increasing the amount of work we could complete in one day.”

    *OTRS10 is capable of creating simulations linked with video analysis.

  • Training hours Reduced by 50%

    Case Study:
    Electronics Manufacturer

    “We have mainly conducted OJT*(1) with our staff before they begin working at the assembly line, but with OTRS to help train our staff, we can now record and analyze new workers’ actions and use these videos to directly compare our new workers with our experienced workers*(2). It has drastically reduced the amount of time needed to effectively train staff.”

    *(1) OJT refers to 'on-the-job training' where employees receive education and training through completing work at their actual job site.
    *(2) OTRS10 has a rating function that can simulate changes made when playing back videos.

OTRS Functions You Should Know

  • Video Analysis and Playback


    Analyze the operation simply
    at the click of the button

    With a user interface specifically designed for video analysis, closely analyze detailed motions by simply using your mouse. Cycle analysis is also available to make it easier than ever to discover any variations that appear in your work.

    *The analysis screen interface is a registered design.

  • Comparative Playback


    Eliminate waste
    by comparing two videos

    Through comparison of two videos such a video that has been properly analyzed with a video from your current workplace, watch both and easily verify and correct any issues. Along with general playback features, OTRS also allows for reverse playback, frame-by-frame playback and more to help eliminate patterns that are not efficient or are problematic.

  • Rearrangement


    Freely rearrange elements
    and explore the best procedure

    It is possible to freely rearrange sections of videos beyond their cycles into up to 5 different types of analytical data. It is even possible to export a single video file to use as analytical data after you have rearranged the parts of a video to your liking. This also makes it possible to select the cycles within a video that exhibit a less favorable performance in comparison with a cycle exhibiting an ideal performance.

  • Work Composition


    Simply combine analysis results
    and output composed reports

    Put to use the results from your analyzed videos to create highly effective work composition simulations. With the rating function, you can easily allow your experienced workers to rate the performance of other members to create a workplace where all workers will produce time-efficient, effective results. It is also possible to create a table to display the results of the simulation based on different combinations.

  • Customizable Reports


    Easily output results
    in your customized report

    Use the contents that has been analyzed through OTRS to create an Excel® document in the layout of your choice. This can be used to create documents to improve work standards or to create manuals and guides for workers to follow. Take a step towards better quality control and the 5S method.

  • Video Manuals


    One click to create video manual
    from the analysis results

    Analysis results can be shared as a video manual through PowerPoint®. Narrations can also be added, creating content that is more effective and efficient in explaining processes to new workers or foreigner workers. It is also the perfect tool to successfully share skills and create multi-skilled workers.
