End-to-end Digitalization of an Industrial Vehicle Manufacturer's Operations

Developed a solution to digitalize machine-based manufacturing vehicles, currently operating on 200+ machines with a valuation of $1 million each.

The industrial vehicle optimization project started with requirements gathering, workflow development, and user stories for three user personas: the vehicle's driver, manufacturer, and buyer.

The goal was to provide these users with real-time production data, defects, downtime, and overall equipment efficiency data via GPS during transit. The challenge was to simultaneously combine sensor data with production efficiency and train AI prediction models.

The team worked with a sealed schedule to manage and deliver the hardware, app, and website within a short time. We designed product roadmaps and implemented Scrum, Kanban, and Agile frameworks for timely development and delivery of the product, which elevated the user experience. To deliver an easy-to-use solution, we applied integrated problem-solving techniques, process efficiency, and feature storming. I managed the end-to-end implementation of the takeaways in the design and development of the autonomous vehicles.
