Real-Time Scheduling

Production planning is the key area of optimisation of production and minimising down times. The system visualises the production plan in a graphical form, allowing for easy and fast queuing of production orders. It presents the current, actual situation of the production and automatically updates the production plan based on down times, defects, and performance. Future orders are automatically recalculated based on historical data from machines and production, which allows the planner to see the production plan that is possible to implement and updated online based on a current production progress.
  • Visualisation of a production plan and a current production progress Indication of current disturbances in the production and automatic adjustment of the production plant in accordance with a current and historical performance Optimisation of a production plan
  • Planning of availability of personnel, tools and devices
  • Personnel matrix
  • Changeovers matrix
  • Comparison of implementation of production with a production plan
  • Alternative production scenarios (what-if)

Production 360

Analytical tool for managers that provides a huge potential in terms of optimisation and improvement of production. The system automatically generates charts and reports as a part of Business Intelligence (BI) platform. The report presents and contains a complete assessment of results of a factory by comparing them with previous periods. It indicates the areas that require intervention due to visible drop of performance. A single report which will allow you to clearly asses the state of the factory and its performance, as well as to predict incoming events. Collective data of each department of a factory. This applies to both OEE indicators, availability of machines, performance, quality, as well as results of maintenance – e.g. average time between failures (MTBF).
  • Manager 360 – view of results of all production departments. General result of a factory.
  • 360 – details of the use indicator and reasons for occurred delays. How the Production department copes with ensuring an appropriate rate of manufacturing of products.
  • Quality 360 – details of the quality indicator and causes of present loses and defects. How the Quality department copes with ensuring an appropriate production quality.
  • Maintenance 360 – details of the indicator of availability and reasons for down times. How the Maintenance department copes with ensuring an appropriate availability of machines.
  • Trends 360 – check where your factory is heading. Forecast for production efficiency.

The system automatically prints a label for particular products or containers after they are filled.
  • Production tracking
  • Process traceability
  • Operational traceability
  • Scanning components required for production (material, semi-product, tool)
  • Material origin
  • Printing individual product labels, collective labels for containers
