For them, process control (the key to quality and productivity) and material and logistics flow tracking are two vital assets that they cannot do without and that allow them to remain competitive.
Effective product traceability and complete control over process traceability
The ability to immediately identify, by serial number and by batch number, material batches that comprise finished goods or products containing a suspect component, to restock production lines just in time, to track manufacturing orders, to produce on-demand and to perform pull-type manufacturing - in short, all tracking and process control actions, on the one hand, and material flow traceability, on the other - is essential to manufacturing industries, if they are to increase their responsiveness and their visibility of work-in-progress and inventory.
Industrialists need to be able to adapt to processes quickly anf flexibly, to ensure the efficient execution of operations.
Advanced performance analysis
The manufacturing industries are particularly sensitive to the performance of their production facilities. To measure that performance, standard key indicators (KPIs) are often put in place, such as OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), uptime and quality rate, and indicators used to optimize maintenance actions, such as MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) and MTTR (Mean Time To Repair), as well as other business-specific indicators.
Industrialists are increasingly seeking to calculate indicators not only on a global level, but also by specific parameters (team, day, week, etc.) for their production facilities and manufactured goods.
This approach can be supplemented by a statistical process control (SPC) designed for the early detection of any variations in the manufacturing process and to prevent any quality defects.
Real-time COOX management MES software is a must for anyone who wants to optimize their performance and productivity.
