Completing a single production order on time is difficult enough, but adding the dozens, hundreds or thousands of additional orders, all demanding overlapping resources, takes error-free production from difficult to impossible.
Guaranteeing every job is where it needs to be precisely when it needs to be there requires more than spreadsheets and guesswork. It requires Quantum.
This manufacturer purchased a new laser welding machine for their fabrication group. Laser welds were much quicker, but every Operator required additional certification on the new processes and safety standards before operating the equipment. This also required a deliberate hand in routing work gradually to the new area so not to overwhelm the team or equipment as the machine came on line.
After the team had been trained on the equipment, the manufacturer realized that the gaps between expected and actual times were increasing. As the Operators moved more work to the new machine, welds were completed more efficiently and the estimates were updated to reflect the new technology. By feeding back adjusted times to Engineering, their shop tightened cost estimates and now project actual profit on each piece of work.
Dynamic routing accounts for the variability of orders, volumes and schedules. Know that the moment an error occurs, every job will be directed to the right work center at exactly the right time to keep orders on schedule.
Quantum makes Excel schedules and templated workflows a thing of the past by automating routing the moment a customer places an order. When an individual area of the shop becomes overwhelmed with volume or another area runs below capacity, Quantum provides everything you need to shift work and see the projected outcome of the change before you issue it to the shop floor.
