In complex and competitive global markets today, is more vital than ever to maximise the effective use of manufacturing equipment. Improving shopfloor management and operational visibility is now a requirement for leading manufacturers and the status quo no longer justifiable.
Increase Output, Reduce Downtime, Improve Quality, Cut Costs, Maximise Profits - Under One Year Payback TypicalAccurate real time manufacturing data is crucial to maximising production efficiency, improving shopfloor management and manufacturing cost reduction.
PlantRun is not a planning and scheduling system but aids production planning and scheduling as each new production run or batch is identified by a unique user defined batch reference. The information for that run or batch, including start and end times and all relevant monitored parameters, can then be stored in the system database against that unique batch reference.
Andon is a Japanese term for a system used in manufacturing to alert when there is a production problem in order to minimise any effect on output.
With PlantRun this alert can be made by pressing a button on the operator interface at the asset or may be activated automatically when a system alarm is triggered.
