23 Jan Optimizing Manufacturing with Andon Production and Takt Time Analysis
Andon Production Overview:
The system offers a configurable view of operations, allowing real-time tracking of machine cycle times and order quantities. It displays units passed, units failed, and remaining units, enabling immediate recognition of production status. The order status is visually indicated (yellow or red) if the cycle time exceeds the calculated duration, ensuring timely intervention.
Takt Time Analysis: The Operator Center displays station or machine status with a bar graph showing order progress and adherence to takt time. Cycle times are prominently displayed, alerting when takt time exceeds the target, prompting immediate action. The system resets and turns green upon completion of a cycle, providing clear visual feedback for operational efficiency.
This MES accelerator software module is essential for manufacturers looking to enhance their production efficiency and time management. By focusing on Andon Production and Takt Time analysis, it demonstrates how real-time data and visual indicators can significantly improve manufacturing processes.
