THE NEED

As part of an audit (end of 2008), Adixen had to provide one of its most important client with precise answers on its teams’ skill levels.

“Our client wanted to be sure that Adixen’s employees had the required skills for the conception and the manufacturing of their vacuum pumps. Our client’s quality procedure was very strict and it required precise answers within a very short period of time.” mentions Marie-Elizabeth BOURRET, Head of Training and Skill Development within Adixen.

Half of the Adixen’s staff, from R&D to the manufacturing department, was concerned. “Our client was expecting this audit would provide the insurance of using products matching his quality requirements. We reassured him by providing him with a comprehensive map of the different skills available in each of our departments.”

“In view of the strategic relevance of such a client and the urgency of the situation, Adixen and our quality department needed to rely on a software tool which would allow to rapidly and precisely validate the matching of our collaborators’ skills with our client’s needs.” specifies Mrs BOURRET.

THE SOLUTION

Adixen called on Ontologos corp. to implement its skill management software, Os Skill©.

Ontologos corp. offered a custom made approach which enabled to create from the existing base repositories matching with Adixen’s jobs.

The far-reaching implementation of Os Skill© resulted in an easy familiarization by Adixen’s employees.

THE RESULTS

Adixen successfully passed its client’s quality audit. Indeed, this client appreciated the accuracy of the audit report and the Os Skill mappings which proved to be intuitive.
