PRODUCTIVITY IMPROVEMENTS COME AS STANDARD
Configurable Andon Board
The traditional Approach
Production scoreboards and Andon boards displays have traditionally been a fairly basic and quite expensive addition to your lean manufacturing programme. The data they display is usually fixed, and restricted to headings such as “Target” and “Actual”, limiting you to snapshot view of what’s currently happening on your shop-floor – once the display changes, the data is lost.
The new OEE
IMPACT Andon Board with our user-friendly Andon
Supervisor software , you can easily configure your displays to show
whatever production data you think is relevant, ie. minutes of shift
elapsed; minutes required to reach daily target; minutes behind target; TAKT
time etc, and change the layout as often as you like.
Using TAKT times to plan your production.
Enter your production requirements and the software will quickly calculate TAKT times and a production plan for your machines/lines that automatically takes account of planned down-time (ie. breaks etc). A visual on-target indicator will let you know how you stand against target in real-time and you can also view a profile of progress throughout the shift. The Score Board will display values such as; minutes of shift elapsed; minutes required to reach daily target; minutes behind target; TAKT time.
It’s not just a snapshot...
So, now you know how well or badly your production runs are going, but how do you know what to change if your results aren’t what you’d like them to be? With the OEE IMPACT Andon Board, you can utilise the powerful software to find out where your problem areas and production bottlenecks lie, decide on changes to your process and then check your summary reports to ensure that your results have improved – data is never lost.
Our flexible Andon solution offers a variety of ways to get data to your scoreboard. Our standard data collection terminals (Ethernet or wireless) can be installed at machine level and will pull data from your production process directly into our Supervisor software. Alternatively, we can provide you with WiFi button boxes that require no installation or cabling, can be positioned and moved wherever and whenever you like and provide a mechanism for an operator to call for help, flag a problem etc. Don’t let your system fall in to disuse just because you need to move a few machines around—move the button boxes too.
And when there’s a problem...
