Innovation in processes
At GRI Renewable Industries we believe that technological investments and continuous improvement through innovation are part of our culture and bring us significant benefits, including quality as excellence, worker safety and better control of results (data collection, analysis and management).
The initiatives undertaken fall into two different categories: on the one hand, improvements in production processes and, on the other, digitalisation and Industry 4.0 projects.
“Digital WorkPlace” project began in 2019 aiming to embrace Microsoft technology and provide employees with the Office 365 tools to continue advancing in the company’s digital transformation.
It is a process that demands an important management of the cultural change of the whole company, in a collaborative environment that allows to approach successfully this challenge of incorporating the new digital technologies, but another piece of an ambitious project throughout the company in these 3 areas:
• Digital Competences: increase digital competences, knowledge and skills to adapt to a constantly changing market and environment.
• Digital Workplace: define how new technologies may improve the way of working in all aspects.
• Digital Experience: boost digital agility in all work aspects.
GRI Renewable Industries´ suppliers are an indispensable asset within the value chain, for their importance in project planning and in the project’s cost competitiveness.
The following areas are integrated in the ¨Supply Chain¨ corporate division: Procurement, Purchases (direct and indirect), Supplier Quality and Logistics.
A total of 232 suppliers were registered of which: 51 are classified as fully reliable, 45 are considered of minimal risk and 61 as medium risk. The remaining suppliers are in the process of completing registration. The continuous improvement in the qualification of suppliers to achieve the maximum score is a milestone that the SQA area is pursuing day after day.
In addition to the evaluation, 15 ¨in-situ¨ audits, both for products and processes, were conducted by the purchase teams from the Plants and Corporate.
