Business growth involves hitting or outperforming targets while keeping a tight reign on the profit and loss statement. Standardize processes across multiple facilities, gain insights into what’s happening across your enterprise, and align corporate strategy with your plant’s operational reality. Reduce costs and remain competitive with success that starts on the plant floor.
Ensure targets are met, waste is minimized, and programs are followed with multi-plant visibility.
Maintain reliable performance in the face of supply chain disruptions and demand fluctuations.
Evaluate risk and supply chain volatility for accurate financial planning and cost reduction strategies.
Identify new strategies to elevate the workforce and drive a culture of continuous improvement.
The Value Of A Reliable System
Overview Dashboards: Convert live data from daily plant processes into meaningful trends that monitor plant program efficacy, such as:
Downtime to operating ratio, throughput, and yield
Top 5 pieces of equipment affected by downtime, top 5 downtime reasons, and total number of rejected products.
Scrap data by shift or equipment to identify areas of improvement.
OEE score by Item, Batch, Line, Shift, and Location. View availability, performance, and quality by day or month
Multi-Site Visibility: Compare live or historical performance from one plant to other organizational facilities, company benchmarks, and industry standards.
Automated (IoT) Data Capture: Automate the capture of digital data from existing systems (ERP, MES, SCADA) and equipment to ensure consistent data with our platform and across the plant.
Overall Equipment Effectiveness: Visualize critical live measures of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (throughput, availability, and quality) within the production process. Accurately assess how efficiently any plant is running at any given time.
Preventative Maintenance: Improve asset lifespan and facility uptime through data-driven maintenance planning at the plant level, effectively preventing unplanned downtime."
Smooth Product Runs: Minimize wasted product and time with mobile capture of quality data to track performance and optimize overall quality.
Statistical Process Control: Reduce production process variability to ensure consistent product quality, alerting operators when a product drifts out of tolerance.
Trend Analysis: Track shift performance and identify where specifications should be adjusted to improve yield.
Regulatory Programs: Ensure the plant and its processes are in regulatory compliance with audit-ready data and pre-built program templates that support major safety programs.
Audit Management: Streamline third-party audits and alleviate the burden on QA personnel by providing auditors with access to the information they need, avoiding fine or recall.
Compliance & Safety Management: Ensure suppliers, personnel, processes, and finished goods are in compliance throughout receiving, production, and pre-shipment.
On-time Delivery: Implement clearly defined processes, accurate data, & improved product quality that streamlines for streamlined pre-shipment reviews and reduced product holds.
Capacity Utilization: Monitor equipment availability in real-time to know the moment a downtime event occurs to more quickly address issues impacting productivity.
Operational Planning: Inform strategic decisions and new plant programs with visibility into the corners of the facility lacking data, such as EHS, maintenance and supplier management.
Device Integration: Reduce manual data entry with a wide variety of supported connections to devices like weigh scales, barcode scanners, and measurement tools.
Risk Management: Oversee the plant’s potential exposure to external risk factors (from suppliers, ingredients, and other sources). Improve decision-making when evaluating current & future suppliers, and foster business reputation.
Internal Programs: Coordinate and track internal processes surrounding internal audit programs such as Pre-Ops, Maintenance, Sanitation, and EHS.
Digital Forms: Mobile forms designed for the end-user, allowing operators to flag deviations and aggregate data from quality checks for performance reporting.
Automated Tasks and Alerts: Define processes, trigger communications when tasks need to be completed, eliminating guesswork and driving accountability.
Real-Time Dashboards: Trend live performance on the shop floor, from product tolerance to scrap data, visually informing operators on needed adjustments.
Strategic Oversight: Equip operators with the tools to do the right thing at the right time, while giving management the ability to correct and improve processes.
Reports: Customizable live and historical reports on the metrics that matter, including throughput, floor metrics, machine downtime, and much more.
Management of Change: Implement new and updated policies or procedures by assigning review and implementation tasks to specific plant personnel.
