You will get the most from your production machine with Objective MES (Manufacturing Execution System). You start from a detailed planning board, you manage operators and machines to best advantage and you analyse performance and quality real time.
Manufacturing excellence in discrete manufacturing
The discrete manufacturing is facing a few of the greatest challenges in its history. Guaranteeing top quality, keeping small series affordable, achieving large volumes fast, having an efficient administration, sustainability, etc. You can convert these challenges into opportunities with Objective MES that will streamline your organisation for Industry 4.0/the Factory of the future.
Manufacturing Excellence for the discrete manufacturing, that is to create added value in the area of:
- The optimisation of your productivity
- Speed and flexibility towards customers
- Quality assurance and improvement
- Machine and people efficiency
- Use of energy and utilities
- Reduction of WIP, waste, scrap and rework
- 100% product safety and traceability
Advanced planning and scheduling: deploying your resources optimally
You can create an efficient production planning manually or automatically with the planning module of Objective MES where the availability of machines, resources and people is taken into account.
The automatic scheduler will generate a planning proposal that is most in line with the predefined KPIs based on algorithms. Once the optimal planning has been achieved, operations will be released to the work floor and will be tracked and traced real time in the planning board.
Paperless production: fewer errors and a higher efficiency
The working situation and organisation are radically optimised with Objective MES. Production orders on paper... this is old hat. Everything runs through Objective MES. It, for example, offers specific logon options for each operator with specific rights and skills. The Objective screens only display the relevant information for the logged on operator. In addition, electronic instructions, photos, etc. are, for example, provided to guarantee a correct task execution. Paperwork and errors are prevented by logging the data directly through the operator screen.
The automatically registered data is collected in a central database. This ensures that isolated information that provides little added value can be avoided. You will, at any given moment, see the status of your production and will, therefore, obtain optimum planning and efficiency.
Real time monitoring of your production performance, machine status and quality
One of the core tasks of Objective MES is supervising and managing the performance of the production department real time. All relevant production data and information will be accepted, processed and visualised through dashboards.
In addition to defining the performance of the production process, the analysis of the performance losses is also a true added value. Objective MES offers useful Pareto analysis functions for this that allow you to zoom in on faults and interruptions from different angles. Objective MES also, of course, allows you to capture and analyse quality data.
In short: Objective MES means that you will have unequivocal and correct information about KPIs such as yield, rework, cycle times, OEE, reasons for machine shutdowns, material consumption levels, efficiency of operators, etc. You can, therefore, benchmark your performance at any given time in comparison with the reference figures.
WMS + MES = SUCCESS
The right product at the right moment at the right location... This sounds simple but it is not. How will you manage your production and logistics efficiently and in an integrated manner?
The Objective suite makes the difference in this area. In 1996, we started as one of very few in Europe to develop a best-of-breed MES and WMS solution. Now, 20 years later, Objective is your dedicated partner to tow your company towards logistics and manufacturing excellence because of the many implementations, extensive functions and the built-up market knowledge.
