What to make and when to make it
This core element of JAVELIN controls the progress of work through the manufacturing/assembly facility. A full set of monitoring and tracking routines ensures complete visibility of work in progress.
Features at a glance:
Customisable shop floor documentation
Works instructions, material and tooling requirements
Work in progress monitoring
Progress and cost feedback
Full Specifications. The system can generate fully specified works orders / routings complete with;
- Part numbers
- Manufacturing instructions
- Planned times
- Material requirements
- Delivery date and customer details
A Range of Documentation. JAVELIN provides the complete range of shop floor documentation including;
- Routing sheet
- Operation tickets
- Kit lists
- Tooling lists
- Finished goods transfer notes
- Stock check tickets
- Sub-contract documentation
Bar Codes. Bar coded documentation is available as standard to drive JAVELIN’s Shop Floor Data Collection features.
Sub-Contract. Sub-contract documentation is created automatically at the required point in the production process. In addition, the anticipated return date is specified in order to ensure close monitoring of bought-out services.
Linking Operations. Tools, jigs and fixtures may be linked to individual operations. These can also be used in scheduling and their utilization monitored for re calibration or refurbishment.
Narratives. Narratives, normally work instructions, may be assigned and stored against any operation to ensure operators are fully aware of requirements.
Multiple Methods of Manufacture. When the works order is raised, operations and material requirements are generated from the standard routing and BOM. Multiple methods of manufacture can be defined enabling alternatives to be specified quickly and efficiently or works order data can be individually manipulated for specific requirements.
Full Traceability. Works orders may be split during manufacture whilst maintaining the link back to the parent for traceability and costing purposes.
WIP. Work-in-Progress is monitored accurately using data entered directly into the system or received via shop floor bar-code readers (SFDC). The same data is also used to update relevant costing and performance monitoring files.
Planned V Actual. Feedback on ‘planned’ against ‘actual’ times is instantly available to shop floor supervision, along with other related performance indicators.
