A cutting edge custom manufacturing client worked with DMC to improve ERP and factory floor integration. These updates allow them to boost efficiency, quality, and identify other areas for continuous improvement on an ongoing basis.
DMC’s client makes many custom parts to order. The schedule for this process is set by the ERP system every day, and each part needs to be processed by multiple machines. The machines receive the schedule and work order from the data base that the ERP system populates each evening. The system also has several checks and features to help guide operators and eliminate the possibility for user error.
Detailed information on the process is logged back into the SQL server data base along with fault logs and fault history. This provides the client access to fault logs, cycle times and machine states, both in real-time and for historical data analysis. The data is regularly mined to identify the best areas of improvement from an ROI perspective.
