Getting started with Alteryx was easy and contributed to fast time to value. The no-code, low-code, drag-and-drop capabilities enable TOYO users of all skill levels to build workflows and reports without assistance from data experts.
“Alteryx is very easy to use for Excel users without IT or programming skills,” said Motoi Tokimatsu, Senior Engineer of the R&D Team. “They can easily develop workflows and get the required output by themselves.”
Empowering engineers and other business users with automated analytics is accelerating digital transformation efforts and a data-driven culture at TOYO. The time saved using Alteryx is also opening new opportunities for innovation. “We can use the extra time to focus on education and improving design quality,” says Nakagawa.
Improvements in quality have downstream benefits by reducing design changes, re-works and expenses at the construction site. Field Revision Instruction, or FRI, which is issued to construction contractors to solve issues such as modifying pipe routes to solve the clash or design errors. “Having to make a fix to an error found during an FRI can drive up organizational expenses by 10x,” said Qiu.
TOYO’s analytics automation for the design quality control checked by Alteryx has significantly reduced the drawing checking man-hours and number of re-works at the construction site and the risk of having to cover costs resulting from an error being found during the installation.
Qiu sees unlimited possibilities using Alteryx in the future. He envisions leveraging AI for predictive capabilities to estimate how to make better cost estimations for clients based on historical data.
For now, Qiu and his team are happy to have the days of time-consuming, manual work behind them. Instead, they are focusing on using advanced technologies like Alteryx to make flawless products and happy customers.
