Realtime insight in workorders
JobControl supports production on the shop floor. Workorders are digital presented on a screen or iPad, based on the scheduling, to the operators. In case of change in planning, the sequence for the operator will change as well due to the realtime connection between shop floor and back office. The digital workorders are foreseen with all kind of extra information, ALL digital. It will show work instructions, BOM, manuals, drawings, reference designators etc. JobControl will register realtime man and machine hours and the usage of materials. All information will be sent back, realtime, towards ERP giving you realtime insight in statuses of workorders. By closing the loop between office and shop floor you will have full control and be able to compare actual versus budgeted costs.
StockControl will support warehouse transactions of products and materials digitally. This way you will prevent workorders being started without the proper materials in place. In case of missing parts, the operator can file a pick request digital, making sure the order can start asap. Picking orders, goods received, handling of materials, will all be presented digital to the warehouse employees. Due to the realtime connection with ERP, you will be able to monitor the movements of materials and parts.
QualityControl handles scrap and deviations reported digital by the operators. The main goal of the Smart Production Suite is that operators focus on producing and nothing also then producing. The entire organization has a “bring” attitude making sure that operator can always continue working and will not be distracted by searching for materials or wasting time on scrap and deviations. When deviations or scrap are reported, Quality will receive an alert so they are immediately notified when deviations occur. This way all information is available to analyze the root cause.
The Smart Production Suite will support you with the fully 100% digitalization of your organization.
