Shop Floor Monitor

Plant performances monitoring

Within the production execution process, production monitoring is the activity that allows to have a complete real-time panorama of the events (Event Management) along the entire production line. The Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is the set of computerized management systems that allows to monitor the production area of a company. Taking advantage of the MES, in accordance with the regulations in force, the production’s execution guarantees the high quality of the production result.

Main functionalities of an event management software for the production monitoring

Production monitoring services rely on providing standardised workflows to the various operators involved.
The dedicated software:

  • monitors the production processes, enabling a real-time reaction to production disruptions by providing feedback to the business layer;
  • aggregates data from third-parties systems into contextualised KPIs and constantly compares them with the set goals;
  • normalizes and harmonizes plant data flows;
  • improves communication between the personnel of the different departments (production, quality, logistics and maintenance) in order to minimize the product processing lead-time;
  • manages the operational scheduling and the documentation of each production resource, from planning to execution.

Benefits of using an Event Management Software

Monitoring the production, leveraging on the MES, provides precise strategic advantages such as:

  • real-time reaction to production disruptions;
  • real-time reaction to production disruptions;
  • continuous monitoring of production status and performances;
  • reduction of production lead-time;
  • recording of production tracking;
  • reduction of line and inter-operational buffers;
  • cost reduction at warehouse level;
  • “just-in-time” material handling;
  • improvement of the delivery process.

Shop Floor Monitor: the sedApta Suite component for the Shop Floor Control

Shop Floor Monitor (SFM) is the sedApta Suite component, which is part of the monitoring activities of production processes. In an industrial context characterised by an increasing number of factors that production managers must monitor and manage in a timely manner (Shop Floor Management and Control), Event Management is an activity of high strategic value. The various SFM functionalities can be used thanks to practical web interfaces that allow access at any time and from any type of industrial terminal, desktop or mobile, to the data of progress and monitoring of the production line.

It is made by three modules:

Shop Floor Control

The first module has been designed to allow the real-time monitoring of the production. Shop Floor Control is based on: updating and monitoring of production progress; final balance of times and quantities produced; continuous updating of performance indicators.
