Products and Applications
INDUSTRIAL BUSINESS UNIT (IBU)
IBU is organized into three product groups, Automated Systems, Technology Components and Value Added Services.
AutoGauge: These systems are used in the assembly and fabrication plants of various automotive manufacturers to contain, correct and control the quality of complex assemblies. AutoGauge systems are placed directly in the manufacturing line or near the line to automatically measure critical dimensional characteristics of parts using non- contact, laser triangulation sensors. AutoGauge can be installed as a fixed system with fixed-mounted sensors, as a hybrid system involving both fixed-mounted sensors and robot-mounted sensors, or as a flexible system utilizing robot-mounted sensors.
AutoGauge Plus: This new product was released in December 2009 and is its gauging system that offers freeform surface scanning and discrete feature measurement in one solution. Users of AutoGauge Plus can create a customized gauging solution that automatically converts from collecting precise, discrete measurements to capturing 3D point clouds. AutoGauge Plus delivers both speed of in-line measurement and the data density of automated scanning.
AutoFit: These systems are used in automotive manufacturing plants to contain, correct and control the fit of exterior body panels. The system automatically measures, records and displays the gap and flushness of parts most visible to the automobile consumer, such as gaps between front and rear doors, hoods and fenders, and deck lids and rear quarter panels. The companys laser triangulation sensors have been improved to enable gap and flushness to be measured in various parts of the manufacturing process: in the body shop during assembly of non-painted vehicles, and in the final assembly area after the vehicle has been painted. AutoFit has the ability to measure vehicles while in motion along the assembly line or in a stationary position.
AutoScan: These systems provide a non-contact method of gathering data for the analysis of the surface contour of a part or product, such as automotive closure panels, including doors, deck lids, and hoods. These systems use robot mounted sensors specifically designed to scan a part as the robot moves throughout its path. The AutoScan system collects the point cloud data required for contour analysis and dimensional feature extraction. This allows the parts shape to be automatically scanned and compared to a computer-generated design and to report specific measurements on the part.
AutoGuide: These robot guidance systems utilize the companys sensors and measurement technology to improve the accuracy of robotic assembly operations. AutoGuide systems calculate the difference between theoretical and actual relationships of a robot and the part being assembled and send compensation data, in six axes, to the robot. Robotic applications supported by AutoGuide include windshield insertion, roof loading, hinge mounting, door attachment, sealant application, and others.
ScanWorks: The company provides ScanWorks products to various markets through third party original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), system integrators, an

Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
