It will show work instructions, BOM, manuals, drawings 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 control resulting in flow in the factory.
StockControl will support warehouse with digital processing of transaction of products and materials. This way you will prevent workorders being started without the proper materials in place. 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 ingredients or wasting time on disposals. When disposals 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.
