MV2 PRODUCTION MONITOR
Production Monitor provides another level of contribution to the goal of keeping your finger on the pulse of production activities. All vital signs of production can be viewed and interpreted through Production Monitor. This is where the work of publishing and collecting data begins to pay dividends by enabling conclusions to be drawn and decisions to be made that will improve performance and results. KPIs derived by analyzing the volumes of data enabled through MV2 can provide invaluable insight. This provides the opportunity to better tune production processes which reduce variability, enable greater throughput and improve on order timeliness.
Knowing in advance that a part that is trending out of tolerance or a kanban bin is never getting scanned are typical events in a manufacturing environment. Collecting and analyzing data can reduce scrap by helping to realize a quality issue is eminent before bad parts are produced. Learning that a kanban bin is never being consumed simply because there are too many full bins available can immediately reduce inventory levels. These and other mission critical KPIs are only available when the right data is collected at the right times. Production Monitor can contribute significant results to either the event based Data Capture tool or the workflow based Process Management tool.
Production Monitor is clearly the means to extract the value of the all of the data and spotlight meaningful results through user friendly tools.
