Job dispatch and recipe management systems
Pioneer Machinery, with 48 years experience designing and manufacturing wire and cable machinery, is now providing customers with Smart Factory solutions.
After thorough discussion with many of their customers, Pioneer Machinery has learned about some common problem they regularly face, such as:
1. Low efficiency in paper work flow
2. Frequent handwriting mistakes
3. Wrong data input of production parameters
4. Lack of ability in dealing with flows of information
Digital transformation, via digitizing ancient machines and building digital flow, is considered to be essential when dealing with these problems.
Two powerful aspects of the digital flow are the job dispatch system and the recipe system, as the combination of these two will increase the data transfer accuracy and transparency in all manufacturing processes.
Job Dispatch System
Pioneer offers a highly customized design that allows customers to retain their operating habits and shortens the pain of system-implementing period. It also includes the following features:
1. Create and administrate digital production orders.
2. Launch production parameters to the assigned machine.
3. Overview the list of tasks and the production schedule.
4. Display the status of the digital production order on each specified machine.
The recipe system enables the production process variables to be clearly presented through data and stored in the database for centralized management. It also includes the following features:
1. Centralized digital management.
2. Production parameters optimisation.
3. Reducing human operation errors.
In summary, Pioneer strongly believe that digitization is the core component of the entire manufacturing process, as it decreases the barriers between IT and OT, letting manufacturing data be recorded soundly in sequence.
All these functions not only highly increase the efficiency of the manufacturing process but also build solid fundamentals for furthermore smart-factory applications.
