Production control

Experience a new age of production planning & execution

Take complete control of your production processes with digitized, accelerated workflow.  No more Excel.  No more paper.  Fewer meetings.  Integrate your production teams like never before!

Production Control

Manufacturing planning, scheduling & execution solution for production orders and kanbans

Use Production Control for detailed scheduling based on production orders or electronic kanbans. Connect it to ERP (SAP) or use it as a standalone solution. Supporting both make-to-order and make-to-stock production strategies, the system covers the whole process of multi-level production from semi-finished goods to assembly lines.

Andon-based use of colors helps you quickly assess the current status of the processes. See red anywhere? That means there is an issue that requires your attention. Green? Everything is going as planned. Staying up-to-date couldn’t be any easier.

Main features and solution highlights

From production planning to shop floor execution to logistics to the warehouse, Production Control covers the full scope of your production operations.  Using and ERP system?  We connect to it.  Have MES software?  No problem.  Want a standalone system?  We will deliver it.

Production Control works the way you do!

Plan Production like a pro

Demand Planning Synchronization.

Start with production orders created by ERP software or other 3rd party apps

Eliminate production planning in Excel, printing and distribution of paper

“Poka yoke” all the way!

Production control makes assignment of proudction order / ekanbans “poka yoke” meaning “mistake proof”. With proper configuration it is impossible to assign items to a production line that is incapable of producing the item.

Sequencing & Assignment of Production Orders / eKanbans

(a.k.a. Production Scheduling)

Production Order / ekanban sequencing

Sequencing methods are:

  • Drag & drop for full control
  • Automatic
  • Smart Suggestions

 

Parallel Planning

Manage production lines side-by-side

Get a complete overview of production capacity and level production by drag & drop

Multi-level Production

Plan & Follow production orders every step of the way!

From MPS to final assembly & packaging to semi-finished lines to the warehouse.  You’ve never had a clearer picture of production.

MES redefined for the shop floor

Shop floor screens make the production process even more connected and transparent. Touchscreen control, optimized for operators, is extremely easy and intuitive. In the manual mode, starting and finishing production is done simply by tapping an icon. You can also connect the app to your MES and make production declaration fully automatic.

Can connect with your current MES system or run as a standalone MES.

 

Line feeder view

Ideal for material line feeders on the shop floor and in the warehouse

Receive instant notifications of material shortages and keep production lines up and running at full capacity.  No more waiting.

Logistics

On time shipments with Outbound deliveries view

Delivery notes are prioritized according to when trucks will arrive.  Get current status of all orders that need to be on the truck.

Accelerate your production team

the team that will love using Production Control

Plant managers, team leaders, production planners, line operators, line feeders, logistics specialists, and more.

Production Control brings the entire team together and accelerates their everyday workflow.

Always up to date and paperless!

PLANNERS AND LOGISTIC MANAGERS

Make day-to-day production simple.  Daily production planning in minutes.  Production changes updated in real-time. Freedom from Excel and paper!

LINE OPERATORS

Touch screen displays on the shop floor allow line operators to receive production orders in real-time.  As planning is changed, line operators are immediately updated.

LINE FEEDERS

Allows production line feeders to know exactly which raw materials, purchased components, or semi-finished goods are necessary to keep production moving.

Touch screens are installed directly where needed on the shop floor or in the warehouse where production materials are stored.

Production control – the details. Everything you need to know.

Ability to create the perfect production sequence while considering differences among material changeovers. There are 3 ways to manage changeover in Production Control: 1/ MES will share the changeover matrix for all materials via webservice. 2/ CSV file import and 3/ Manual management in Production Control.

User with admin rights can dynamically define a specific set of user roles for all Productoo apps based on selected responsibilities. The roles have different action rights (edit/view), access to specific modules and features, access to specific production entity (production line/material/equipment) based on qualification of each user. There is always possibility for admin to create both generic account and individual user account.

Material visual check using 3D models on the shop floor digital workstation. There is no more need for paper versions of product visuals being produced on particular station, or complicated usage of different applications and screens. The operator can now have it all in one application, on one screen and easily visualize his product with zoom in/out and 3D rotation.

Standard declaration screen can even be used for quality management, with various customization options. After the operator finishes the material, he can move it to “Waiting for quality” and only after the check is done, it is moved to the next stage. The check can be performed by a different person using different login and during the check there is an option to display relevant documents and visuals needed to perform the check.

Production order life cycle extended with final quality check. Check is performed only on selected materials, or the orders produced on specific production lines. Quality stations can be dedicated to a specific production line, multiple lines, or single line can have multiple quality stations. Quality check is done on Digital workstation with a new quality screen managing sequence of the orders waiting to be checked. There is also a new status report with information about on-going quality checks.
