Smart Manufacturing depends on the availability of critical data across all manufacturing operations; it requires “fully integrated, collaborative manufacturing systems that respond in real-time to meet changing demands and conditions in the factory, in the supply network and in customer needs.”*
*As defined by MESA International
Built-in functionality for robust and efficient interfaces between the MES and your plant equipment, ERP systems and any other manufacturing applications.
Where production machines lack connectivity, Lighthouse Systems will automate data collection into the MES / MOM platform with affordable PLCs.
Shopfloor-Online MES software shows the current factory status, updated live from all data sources. Report dashboards provide instantaneous alerts to problems and exceptions, for real Smart Manufacturing Intelligence.
The platform records all process data and alarms with other MES data providing accurate information to establish benchmark, investigate issues, correlate across the various departments and improve the process.
The powerful native reporting engine of Shopfloor-Online offers standard reports that can be presented in tabular form or charts, in Excel, Word or PDF format, and can be easily emailed or downloaded.
The MES/MOM system can be run simultaneously on any desktops, tablets and mobile devices including Android, iOS and bar code scanners used by operatives or fork-lift truck drivers.
Security and audit
Secure access to the MES / MOM system is controlled through authorised logins and user rights. Transaction logs provide a full audit trail of any data changes.
Extend the platform as your requirements increase, via 26 modules offering functionality across all manufacturing operations: production, quality, warehouse & logistics, maintenance operations.
