Variant management allows customers who have commonality in their product build and assembly processes, to maintain a super work instruction for a product family, which contains multiple final product configurations.
This simplifies the maintenance of work instructions significantly, allowing common elements and processes to be reused, without the need for duplication.
Embedding quality data is easy with ProcessIQ with support for many input types from simple confirmations and option selection to cross checks and mandatory inputs.
More advanced data entry types, such as upper and lower limits and machine test results, can be configured to drive quality throughout the build.
Managing quality on the line is an integral part of ProcessIQ. Issues can be raised manually by operators or line supervisors, or system driven when limits are breached or retry attempts reach their maximum.
Issues can be configured to suit your own dispositions with different workflows and follow-on activity.
Quality and production data offers insights into how well the shop floor is performing and helps understand where persistent issues may be arising. Data provides key information on timings to ascertain product profitability targets and ensures critical quality thresholds are being met.
Importing or linking production orders to ProcessIQ is easy. By creating a link between the build process and the order, traceability, line management, completion and confirmation data can automatically flow between ERP / MES and the shop floor.
