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.

Get accurate live production counting from all your manufacturing assets - machines, lines, work cells, and manual operations - with PlantRun.

Reducing machine downtime has an instant beneficial effect on manufacturing production efficiency and output. However, without accurate information on the real amount and the causes of downtime it can sometimes be a difficult to see how machine downtime can be reduced.

PlantRun systems act as a manufacturing notification system by distributing information whenever and wherever it is needed, based on events and alarms, to enable smoother running of your production operations.

The primary aim is to provide faster response to and minimise production issues.

Real time monitoring of machine speeds provides two main benefits for improved efficiency.

Firstly, it is possible to accurately monitor speeds against target levels for each machine and alert when they are performing out of range.  In particular small variations in machine speed often go unnoticed by operators whereas a monitoring system can immediately alert the need for corrective action to be taken.
