Production machinery and resources generate vast quantities of data on an ongoing basis. Capturing this data and organising it in such a way that it can be used to increase output and reduce costs is a major challenge for manufacturers.
Factory Manager is an online document, tracking and analysis solution, helping manufacturers to improve their performance and reduce issues. It enables you to create a truly paperless shop floor by allowing the online attachment of documents, videos, forms and sign off records, with full archive functionality for audit purposes.
Factory Manager also allows you to record and monitor issues such as machine downtime, calibration, tooling problems, employee leave and accidents, so you can evaluate recurrent issues, reduce downtime and create workflows to prevent future incidents. It helps you to capture feeds from your machines, software and personnel and share important metrics with your team, from anywhere, at any-time and on any device.
Loading, Availability, Performance and Quality measurements are passed to Factory Manager from the Planning and Workforce modules. With this information you are able to easily understand your overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and total effective equipment performance (TEEP). Six big loss analysis identifies opportunities to eliminate waste from your processes supporting follow on lean and Six Sigma initiatives.
