Visual factory management is as it suggests the use of visual cues or aids to enable improved management of factories and manufacturing production areas.

PlantRun enables visual factory management in several ways including;

Factory floor information displays

Use PlantRun as a production display system to inform and motivate staff by displaying production status, OEE and KPI's using large format overhead screens in manufacturing, meeting, workshop areas. Any number of screens can be driven by PlantRun displaying information relevant to the area, cell or line in which they are sited. These can also provide andon functionality for operators to request assistance etc. Microsoft Powerpoint slides can also be displayed allowing any custom messaging to be shown.

PlantRun Display Node hardware makes it straight forward to use any HDMI capable large screen TV, monitor or projector in this way. Display Node connects to the main system PC server over exisiting networking to generate single static or mutiple scrolling screens allow flexible messaging.

A standard feature of most PlantRun system is the 'Factory Floor Overview' which is a graphical plan view of the entire production area with the status of each machine or asset color coded. For instance, running machines are represented in green, stopped machines in red, out of service machines in grey and slow machines in amber.

A quick glance at the screen lets you know the status of all machines. Click on any machine for a detailed representation of that machine and its relevant metrics.  Interactive icons on displays can appear when attention is required - for example to prompt when a particular asset requires maintenance.
