Good design is not enough. The product must also be designed for efficient production!
Industrialisation of Tagomat for BB Computerteknikk AS
The product, developed by BB Computerteknikk AS in Drammen, prints bag tags for aircraft luggage - faster and easier than any other product on the market!
The challenges were:
The product cost was too high
The end customers wanted a unique design. This was previously done by painting the product in the customer's colors.
When replacing tag rolls, the entire front cover had to be removed. The customer wanted a better solution.
The device was only designed for wall mounting. The customer also wanted a stand-alone solution.
