MES - MOM - Real time production monitoring - Workshop control

COOX : the Heart of Smart Factory

Called production monitoring, workshop control, production supervision or manufacturing follow-up, the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is the heart of the smart factory.
It allows to control and optimize all stages of the production, from the orders of manufacture coming from ERP or your management system, until the storage or the shipment of the products. It also allows you to control the performance of your installations through performance and quality indicators such  as OEE.

Team management

Staff, manpower and teams management

Production monitoring or MES functions do not replace the management of the company's personnel, but provide the necessary information for the assignment of personnel on the workstations and their management as a production resource.

 Better resource management
 Control of the execution time of operations
 Optimization of the actual manufacturing cost of products

Real-time indicators

Performance analysis - Indicators - OEE - KPI

Quality and industrial performance are part of the for continuous improvement of manufacturing processes (TPM approach : Toal Productive Management).

 Key Performance Indicators
 OEE calculation and monitoring
 Real-time graph display

Material flows tracking

Material flow and inventory management

Perfect visibility on material flows, whether raw materials or products : an essential stake for production !
 Comprehensive tracking of batches
 Immediate identification of their location
 Optimal inventory management

Workflow quality

Production quality monitoring

Quality, an essential component of production monitoring, is a transverse function that operates from the receipt of raw materials to the delivery of products.

 Multi-level Quality controls
 Quality rate and performance in real-time
 Continuous improvement

Production plan

Planning - Scheduling - Detailed Planning

Transmitted by the ERP or the  production management  to the MES software, production orders can also be created directly.

 Planning production orders
 Control of their execution
 Real-time visualization of production phases

Immediate genealogy

Products traceability - Genealogy

In order to guarantee the quality of their products and comply with increasingly demanding legislation, industries must have now an effective product traceability.

 Containers and transfers modeling
 Systematic traceability of material flows
 Detailed genealogy of batches and used equipments

Production Orders

Production orders management

Production orders will allow to sequence the manufacture according to the orders to be delivered.

 Import from ERP
 Launching and monitoring production orders
 Automatic management of resource allocation

Production flexibility

Operating procedures monitoring - Process traceability - Batch file

Key to productivity and quality, process control is now a challenge for all industries.

 Process control
 Systematic process traceability
 Electronic Batch File

Products definition

Recipes and bill of operations management - Formulas and BOMs

Essential for the control and execution of your production, product definitions can either be sent by your ERP but is often created or completed in the MES.

 Recipes definition
 Process modeling
 Recipes and multi-step procedures
