Whether your build process is model specific or component based with 1000's of parts or product variations, easily configure digital work instructions and process control to ensure products are built right and quality standards are met. Connect, enable, and collect process data from tooling and devices such as – barcode scanners, torque tools, gauges, cobots, vision systems, pick lights, sensors, augmented reality systems and more.
eFlex Track & Trace is a manufacturing traceability and quality control software solution which enables users to store, retrieve, and report part status in a manufacturing environment. Part traceability provides numerous benefits for manufacturers including improved quality, reduced production costs, increased plant floor visibility while ensuring brand consistency.
Modular, configurable kitting solution where pick sensors/indicators, error proofing, barcode readers, door switches, and more can be changed or added in minutes without programming, eliminating downtime. Always deliver the right part, to the right place, at the right time.
eFlex Assembly integrates equipment and manpower on the plant floor to create an intelligent manufacturing system that is globally standardized and highly flexible for production, maintenance, quality, process and training. Benefits include:
Quality issues can be costly, especially when matters go unresolved for long periods of time. Identifying root cause analysis for issues can be difficult, especially when paper-based tracking is utilized or when there is lack of visibility into daily operations. With eFlex Quality, digital process data is collected down to the task level, allowing for visibility and granularity of operations. Business intelligence reports quickly and easily identify quality issues, alert appropriate individuals and expedite improvement initiatives.
Create reports and dashboards that are pertinent to your operations and improvement initiatives. Reports can be filtered using numerous search criteria such as date, time, assembly area, station, user, product, etc. Reporting options could include but are not limited to:
Manufacturers are constantly challenged to increase productivity, improve quality, and cut costs in order to successfully complete in today's market. Powerful OEE reports provide management the tools they need to track the efficiency and effectiveness of a manufacturing process. Benefits of eFlex OEE include:
eFlex Andon dashboards and displays provide visibility and insight with the right information, to the right people at the right time – allowing for continuous improvement efforts. Customize the views to meet the specific needs of the user. Plant floor displays for operators could show cycle times, parts produced, sensor information, quality measures, or other KPIs for their station, machine or line. A plant manager could view real-time reports for every operator, machine or line within a facility. A corporate manager could view KPIs across plants, divisions or global regions. Display information that drives continuous improvement initiatives for your entire organization and gain a competitive advantage.
eFlex's Manufacturing Integrated Platform (MIP) solutions deliver a new level of plant floor control, visibility and error proofing – making it easier than ever before to configure and manage processes, standardize work instructions and ensure quality standards are always met.
While the cost of traditional layers on the plant floor can be extremely expensive and labor intense – from hardware and integration costs to programming and data analysis needs, MIP provides significant cost savings and reduces the need for separate layers on the plant floor – PLCs, HMIs, SCADA, and MES/MOM systems. One application environment with one common navigation and flow from the control of I/O at the sensor level to advanced analytics reporting.
While MIP reduces the need for layers on the plant floor, it does provide connectivity and direct control covering a wide range of PLCs, sensors, applications and virtually any data source. A flexible, scalable solution that grows with you!
