Deviations eats your result
Production is a complex world and things happens quickly. Many times, deviations and losses happen in “silence” and it can be hard to quickly involve the right people to restore the situation and get production up and running again. The list of things you want to be aware of directly when they happen can be long
Throughput is low on a bottle neck
Machine breakdown will soon start to effect output volumes
Costly quality losses
And more …
For all the above, you want to react quick. You want the right people to be aware and you want them to be able to do the right prio as soon as possible.
The possibility to handle problems quick saves you production time and it will have direct impact on your most important factory KPI
Cost per unit / Resource efficiency
Remember that even a small problem will grow big if you don’t solve it quick enough.
Help the right team members to react, at the right time
But still, deviations happens. You can not avoid them. You will have to handle them and the quicker you can do it, the better it is.
That is why you want to automatically inform the right people in your team when something happens that they should be aware of.
React on deviations
There are many types of events in a production that you want different roles to be aware of.
Throughput < X per hour
Downtime > X minutes
Scrap > X units
Changeover > X minutes
Quality measure > X
Stop of reason X
Machine alarm X
Manual andon call
And there are different ways you can help you team members to be aware that there is a deviation
Light and sound (good to get attention from operators and leaders who are close to machine)
Show information on TV-screen (good for operators (and leaders) who are close the machines and have line of sight with TV-screen 99% of the time)
Push notice in mobile app (good when you want to spread information to roles who are not close to the machine)
E-mail (good when you need to spread information to specific role(s) but the reaction don’t have to be immediate)
Pulse meeting report (good when you want an overview of deviations to look at)
Configure this in RS Production
RS Production is a standard software tool helping manufacturing companies to act based on data and facts.
RS Production have a real time event handling engine and an easy user interface to configure this. It is built up on the following sequence
WHEN – something happens – Event in RS Production
IF – a simple logic check is true – Observation in RS Production
THEN – push out a message in a predefined way – Action in RS Production
