Whether you are a series, stock, single or JIS manufacturer: The starting point for process improvements and seamless tracking and tracing on the shop floor, but also for competition-differentiating Industry 4.0 scenarios, is a clear view of the production process.
This is made possible by the modern, independent, and easy-to-use Manufacturing Execution Solution (ME) from WSW Software. It digitally maps all production lines and workstations and reflects shop floor processes one-to-one. This creates complete transparency in production, from which you can derive a variety of business benefits.
The ME solution communicates bi-directionally with the production-related systems via OPC-UA and other interfaces and stores the process parameters that it currently receives from the applications. This enables seamless traceability of all products, an essential prerequisite for complying with the guidelines of the Product Safety Act (ProdSG) or the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). You can also respond to inquiries from customers at any time, which positively affects your rating as a supplier.
To enhance product quality, the ME solution offers the possibility of comparing the target and actual values of all process parameters in real-time, so that defective products are immediately identified and blocked for production. For additional process reliability, process interlocking functions automatically lock processes if necessary.
Would you like to permanently optimize shop floor processes with our manufacturing execution solution (ME), establish seamless traceability, and implement Industry 4.0 scenarios? We look forward to advising you. Please feel free to call or e-mail us.
The actual process parameters from a plant or an industrial scale can also be comprehensively analyzed and compared with target values or historical data. As a result, deviations or malfunctions can be identified immediately, and maintenance or servicing initiated promptly – predictive maintenance in the sense of Industry 4.0. Faults, rejects, and expensive downtimes can be reduced significantly – a real added value.
You can link the ME solution to your ERP system (e.g., SAP ERP) using flexible interfaces. Shop floor data can be integrated into the ERP processes and the optimization potential in production further increased.
Another big plus of our ME solution is the modern, intuitive interfaces that clearly visualize all data. They offer an optimal user experience (UX) and guide the user through all process steps in a dialog-supported and safe manner so that he can complete tasks quickly and efficiently.
Alternatively, you can quickly and easily create custom dashboards that provide every user – worker, shift manager, production or plant manager – with exactly the information they need. Process parameters can also be configured with little effort.
In addition, the ME solution manages and checks the qualifications of each user for the respective workstation when they log on, thus enabling you to plan and conduct training courses at an early stage – an important quality feature.
