||In a Paper Environment...
||In a Paperless Environment...
||Shop floor employees use outdated and incorrect paper work instructions producing high levels of scrap and rework.
||Work instructions are updated and communicated instantly to the shop floor ensuring accurate information is available at all times.
|Engineering Change Order Process
||The engineering change order process often lasts weeks before the changes hit the shop floor.
||Electronic communication between design engineering, manufacturing engineering and the shop floor creates a collaborative environment to update and communicate changes to the shop floor immediately upon approval.
||Multiple versions of the Bills of Material exist on the shop floor causing confusion, errors and scrap.
||Tight permission-based revision control of master routings and in process orders create 1 single version of truth. The right product is built with the right parts at all times.
|Shop Floor Visibility
||Supervisors do not know the status of orders on the shop floor until the ERP system is updated.
||A production portal allows supervisors to check order status on the shop floor at any time, anywhere in the plant.
||Management uses information that is outdated and inaccurate to make business decisions often having negative implications on the bottom line.
||MES and ERP integration creates a real-time feedback look providing management with actionable, real-time information leaded to improved decision making capabilities.
||Paper-driven NC/CAPA process creates a backlog of orders waiting for inspection or completion of an MRB process.
||Quality is included as part of the production process eliminating laborious paper driven processes. Quality engineers are able to measure, direct and report on quality activities as they happen.
||Inaccurate inventory balances result in delayed production or late customer delivery.
||Electronic control of inventory allows users to record and track parts and materials as they are used, better aligning purchase needs with current usage.
||Employees spend hours copying and collating paper work instructions for the shop floor often resulting in delayed production.
||Employees have information available on demand ensuring accuracy and on-time delivery.
||Employees spend time tracking compliance standards or government regulations and chasing paper for as-built records and audit reports.
||All interactions with the system are time, date and user stamped creating a complete audit trail. Electronic as-built records make manufacturers audit ready 24/7.
