ANT Smart Factory is a software system that includes 7 products and over 1 250 features digitizing manufacturing operations to eliminate unpredictable mistakes, delays, breakdowns, waste, rejects, losses and paperwork.
The scope of implementation can be easily adjusted to customer needs and to the gap in existing systems.
The implementation of 7 products from ANT Smart Factory is the complex solution for all departments, from Production, Maintenance, Quality, through Planning, Logistics, to Energy & Utility Dept.
Thanks to modular architecture, we can also choose the best set of features that fit the customer’s manufacturing process.
ANT Smart Factory is a scalable platform. The system can grow from a single work center or line to hundreds, also in different locations.
The system license does not limit the number of users. It means, that all employees stay involved in the Industry 4.0 revolution.

A First-Class Manufacturing Execution System for high-volume production
Our customers used to say – “Efficient Manufacturing Every Shift”.
We achieve a double-digit performance increase due to the three key assumptions:
REAL PRODUCTION DATA
There is no machine that cannot be connected!
Real data from both the newest and the oldest machines, collected via standard and custom protocols are mandatory.
Operator interface – panel, tablet, terminal or smartphone – always clear, easy to use, fast and friendly. The operators are supported by a tailored set of functions to ensure the work is highly efficient.
Managers log in to the system using a browser to access dashboards and reports. They start by reviewing KPIs and then go into details.
Drill down. The system assists managers by highlighting the data that is most worth seeing because of its impact on overall efficiency, e.g. TOP 10 failures, wastage, discards, speed losses, switching times, etc.
Boost your company’s production capacity without investing in new machinery, halls or salaries. Increase your margin with three smart functions:
STOP the STOPS
Detect the real reasons for breakdowns. Find out which machine is responsible for failures, delays, rejections and why. Instant notifications help operators reduce current losses. Analyzes, like OEE loss tree, Pareto or fishbone diagrams help managers prevent stops.
Prevent failures even while reducing routine maintenance, due to Condition-Based Maintenance, fed by hundreds of measurements collected from PLCs, sensors, cameras.
MACHINE SETTINGS ON THE FLY
Along with the new production order, the recipe is sent to the machine. Reduce the changeover time to ZERO.
The standard planning is not enough, that’s why our customers choose ANT RTS. They do it regardless of whether they already use APS or plan production in ERP. Here are the key reasons:
The RTS calculates the actual time of the order execution according to history, so the plan is realistic. What was planned, is simply done.
The production plan is updated in every cycle and you control simply its execution.
Production orders, changeovers, maintenance – all-in-one schedule. Thanks to this all dependencies and resources are visible. This enables effective management and adjustment of the plan to the current situation.
Production efficiency depends on the availability of machines. Ideally, when production and maintenance use one system. This is the first of three key reasons for choosing the ANT CMMS system:
PRODUCTION AND MAINTENANCE IN ONE SYSTEM
Plan production and maintenance together. Receive the ANDON notifications sent by machine operators. The better collaboration the higher MTBF.
Use modern technologies, like smartphones, tablets, mobile terminals, NFC tags. Increase technicians’ engagement. More and more companies are choosing mobile solutions. Our system is ready for it!
BASED ON REAL MACHINE DATA
Enable the Condition Based Maintenance! Preventive maintenance is performed according to the actual machine’s condition. This results in fewer breakdowns while reducing routine maintenance.
People make the factory. The better communication tools they have, the better they work. Look into the three following cases:
Discuss the data on-line, finish on time, save the arrangements and go. Start the next meeting by checking the results from the previous one. This is an interactive meeting.
Show employees their results and goals clearly. Indicate what is important, what requires attention. Motivate people. Use the visualization that will be noticed, remembered and arouse good emotions.
PAPERWORK UNDER CONTROL
Track the document flow performance to speed up the process and make it manageable. It’ll be easy to check the status of the selected document and change its order, to release the product to the customer ASAP.
Warehouse operations must be as efficient as the production itself. Therefore, the solutions adopted from production are used in the warehouses. It gives at least three key effects:
Allocate the appropriate number of employees to receive the goods in order demanded by production. No more downtime due to a lack of components.
SHIPPING ON TIME
Control the order execution and the on-time shipment readiness. The shop floor’ visualization shows what is ready to be loaded and what is still missing. No more delays to customers.
THE RIGHT COMPONENTS
Track a batch of components from delivery to shipment of the product. Make sure you use the correct parts with known serial numbers.
Energy drives your factory. Make sure that the bills are not overpaid, your equipment will not stop suddenly and there are no leakages that may be sealed easily.
Look into the next three benefits:
LOWER PRODUCT COSTS
Analyse your energy efficiency calculating the amount of energy consumed per product, process, machine, department. For productive and non-productive purposes. According to ISO 50001.
Control and prevent losses in the transformers, compressed air distribution, in heating, cooling, and lighting. You will be notified when an overrun is detected. System can also switch off selected circuits to eliminate further losses.
Control the temperature of devices, a load of busbars and cables. Monitor the power equipment to prevent production stops.
