A common, all-in-one system – ANT Smart Factory is a complex Industry 4.0 solution implemented in the manufacturing environment.
The system supports all activities in the manufacturing plant, including production scheduling, orders execution, changeovers, machine monitoring, shop floor logistics, quality control, condition-based monitoring, energy consumption monitoring and warehouse management.
By implementation of ANT SMART FACTORY, you get a world-class manufacturing solution, that brings the proven methodologies from the leading production companies, built in the modern software system.
Imported production orders are automatically created in the ANT system based on the interface with any ERP system. Smart Factory allows to operate with more detailed production technology, so you can design your business model and improve manufacturing performance thanks to monitoring, even the smallest actions taking place on the machines. The system optimizes production dates and chooses the best production resources available.
From now on, the manufacturing process may be launched on the machines. All operational and process data are collected directly from the automation level (any PLC driver) and operator.
Once the current production is finished, the system proceeds an automatic changeover process by sending new machine setpoints or program itself directly to the PLC driver. Smart Factory significantly reduces errors and time spent during changeovers.
In a modern factory, transparency is the key. Everyone has access to real-time data and current production overview. Well visualized process and data engage all factory departments for better production effectiveness.
Based on real-time data it is more effective to make the right business decisions at the right time and react faster. ANT Smart Factory detects bottle-necks and predicts production obstacles based on historical data. The system is an asset for your company that increases production volume.
