Summary: Production operations constitute the majority of manufacturing activities. It comprises planning & scheduling, tracking downtime, counting production units, recording manufacturing waste, calculating equipment effectiveness, enhancing communication between various teams, calculating wages by recording labor hours and monitoring the production activities’ sequence. MES software has 9 modules that play a critical role in managing production operations.
MES software can be divided into four areas, namely Production, Inventory & Logistics, Quality, and Maintenance operations. In this blog, we will discuss everything about the production operations in the MES software.
The production scheduling software allows users to visualize their plans in real-time, optimizing their capacity and resources accurately. The best part is that you can minimize (or eliminate) your dependency on spreadsheets.
Machine downtime is a significant challenge for many manufacturers as it limits their ability to reach their maximum capacity. Moreover, most companies use a pen and paper system to record all downtime events, making it challenging to examine the problem and improve.
This module will help you transition to a paperless system and significantly improve work order progress visibility.
Scrap and rework can negatively impact a company’s energy and resource utilization, production capacity, and manufacturing processes.
Many businesses still rely on paper-line logbooks for storing crucial business data. However, the major disadvantage of using them is that they give rise to information silos, which impede the free flow of data between different teams.
Work instructions describe how activities should be executed in a batch process like raising the temperature, mixing the ingredients, duration of the mixture, acquiring samples for testing, and much more.
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is an indicator of manufacturing performance. For example, an OEE score of 100% indicates that all manufactured goods achieve 100% of the quality requirements. Moreover, it also goes on to show that goods are produced as quickly as possible without any downtime. OEE score is calculated by multiplying three attributes, namely performance, availability, and quality.
Labor costs are an essential part of the overall manufacturing expenses, and therefore it’s crucial to manage them. Generally, a company decides the headcount per shift during the planning phase. But it’s challenging to track the deployment of labor per shift throughout the manufacturing facility. This is where the labor tracking module comes into play.
Counting the number of finished products during high-speed processes is challenging. As a result, companies often don’t know when to halt the production process that wastes a lot of money, workforce, and time.
