Shopfloor-Online MES Modules

Production - Quality - Inventory - Maintenance

 

From Point Solutions to Enterprise Platform: a modular, expandable MES solution to help you achieve Manufacturing Excellence

The Shopfloor-Online MES software platform comprises 26 independent modules across the 4 main areas of manufacturing operations, as defined by the ISA-95 model.

It is possible to select only the modules needed to meet an initial requirement, but over time more modules can be added as the scope increases, to build a comprehensive Enterprise MES system.

Production Operations

Scheduling Scheduling

Plan production orders, determine start and end dates and assess capacity and ability to meet deadlines. Communicate the plan to production with real-time feedback as production executes.

Job Tracking Job Tracking

Production tracking for batch and discrete manufacturing orders. Track production order progress through the factory for each manufacturing operation or for each batch process.

Downtime Downtime

Machine downtime is recorded by direct connection to the PLCs controlling production processes (or manually where such connections are not possible); downtime analysis and reporting then identifies opportunities for improvement.

Production Counting Production Counting

Record production quantities either manually at the end of the production run, or in real-time, by picking up counts from the production lines and equipment. Calculate KPIs such as production efficiency and actual cycle times.

Waste Waste

Record production waste & scrap manually or automatically. Analyse waste with real-time data capture to help reduce losses.

OEE OEE

Collect and analyse production performance data in the software module that calculates OEE for each production process. Improve production efficiency and accountability.

Line Log Book Line Log Book

Improve communications across all groups within manufacturing, e.g. hand-over between crews on shift change, team and management reporting, operators back to planning.  Improve traceability.

Labour Labour

Track where labour hours have been spent. Define target manpower on the product routing. Control costs. Improve exception management. Support traceability.

Workflow Workflow

Model the execution of the manufacturing process in the MES. Identify all the steps that should be followed, capture the progress of the job as it executes and keep a detailed record of the production process.

Quality Operations

Quality Quality

Quality management software allowing data to be collected at the line or in the lab. Issue reminders to operatives, enforce the quality control system , respond to issues and measure conformance.

SPC SPC

The tools to measure process variation, understand process capability and reduce the impact of process variation. Visualise SPC charts and add SPC data to conformance certificates.

Process Monitoring Process Monitoring

Monitor process parameters with the built-in historian of Shopfloor-Online MES. Chart data. Gain deeper insight into the process. Enhance traceability.

Links to Documents Links to Documents

Quickly access all the documents you need e.g. SOPs, CAD drawings, product specification documents, quality procedures. Ensure everyone is working from the latest revision.

Concerns & CAPA Concerns & CAPA

Speed up the resolution of non-conformances. Record, track and document non-conformances through to resolution.

Customer Complaints Customer Complaints

Record, investigate and manage customer complaints. Improve the speed of resolution. Develop accountability and best practice. Improve customer satisfaction.

Supplier Complaints Supplier Complaints

Drive greater suppliers’ performance. Record, investigate and manage supplier non-conformances. Create a paperless record to support the complaint. Manage claims.

Inventory Operations

Inventory Management Inventory Management

Create, track and manage lots of materials/handling units, from raw materials, to semi-finished and finished goods to enable traceability.

Label Printing Label Printing

Automatically print bar-code labels on your own templates. Use labels to implement traceability.

Traceability - Consumption Traceability - Consumption

Track material lot numbers as they are consumed in manufacturing production processes. Improve stock accuracy, meet traceability requirements.

Build Traceability Build Traceability

Ensure traceability of manufacturing operations at the level of serialised parts.

Warehouse - Logistics Warehouse - Logistics

Manage in-bound & out-bound deliveries. Capture traceability data at shipping. Manage internal material movement orders (replenishment) and deliveries. Track orders and materials in the warehouse. Link with the ERP.

Maintenance Operations

Asset Register Asset Register

Improve Enterprise Asset Management. Manage manufacturing assets through their life cycle.

Maintenance Maintenance

Optimise maintenance activities: create maintenance procedures. Plan and manage maintenance work. Record work done, spare parts used.

Repairs Repairs

Speed up response to breakdowns. Manage repair work. Enforce procedures.

Tool Management Tool Management

Monitor tool life. Track tools used in the process. Develop detailed tool histories. Make better decisions regarding tool use and maintenance.

Energy Management Energy Management

Record energy and resource consumption. Know where your energy goes. Reduce energy losses.
