Data Collection / Job Allocation / Job Scheduling
Each machine on our shop floor staff has a dedicated user PC next to it. The PC runs our in house designed and developed ERP/MRP management software that is networked across the building. The system gives the operators a view of schedule of work, and enables us to collect real time data from the operators by way of clocking in and out of work and on and off of jobs as they happen. Document distribution is much more efficient and always up to date. Each tablet keeps the operators informed with quality alerts, drawing changes, KPI’s and any other useful historical data. Setting Sheets and existing CNC programs are also stored on the database for use at a later date. The workshop is and software is working to become 100% paperless in the very near future. The addition of real time data collection has also enabled us to develop extremely complex scheduling systems which enable efficient and robust scheduling of shop floor capacity. Document flow is now more reliable and gives customers confidence all required information is to flowed down and to hand before a project begins. Our software continually evolves and we have full time developers working on additions, changes and enhancements all the time.
