The production orders in a continuous flow production are often controlled by MES systems. Although the orders are triggered by the system, they often cannot be tracked live. The system usually only receives a confirmation when the product has reached a defined status or is finished.
We will show you how to enrich your MES system with data using simple IoT solutions and how to implement exact live tracking of your orders.
By using a smartphone, tablet or wearable, information about orders can be sent directly to the person in charge. New orders, changes or prioritisations can be transmitted directly and without delay by push message.
With the help of RFID technology, goods carriers or materials can be tracked throughout the company. If the product with an RFID label passes an RFID reader, this is displayed in the system in real time.
The RFID reader can be a workstation, storage location or an entire hall.
In addition to the material, tracking the processing at the individual stations is also useful.
For example, employees can confirm the start of an order via Smartwatches, or a tablet assigned to the station.
The information gained can provide information about the feasibility of the work steps or time delays.
Live monitoring of material and order processing allows process disturbances to be detected early on and logistics processes to be planned precisely.
The data can be displayed via individual user interfaces or transferred to existing programs.
With the help of a Smartwatch, employees can also quickly report process malfunctions or qualitative defects in the product.
The information can be immediately transmitted to a responsible employee by push message. In addition to a faster response time, this information can also be fed directly to the MES in order to adapt subsequent processes.
The collected data can also be used sustainably for process optimization. Regular malfunctions at certain workstations or a high notification rate of quality defects provides starting points for troubleshooting or process optimization.
