Challenges in the Manufacturing Industry
Many industries are dynamic and can place specific
demands on their logistics and manufacturing operations.
Existing pressures across industries include pressures
- Reduce manufacturing cost
- Improve product quality
- Increase return on assets
- Increase customer and market responsiveness
Because of this, many new methods are being put into
place which effect the following concepts:
- Adaptive manufacturing methods
- Increased manufacturing Real time inventory
visibility and control
- Synchronization of supply chain
- Labour management
- Quality management
- Product traceability and recall
OCR’s MES will enable your business to achieve a
world class level efficiency of manufacturing.
Shop floor control
OCR MES delivers a complete solution which offers the
means to complete a wide array of manufacturing tasks,
such as creating production schedules, dispatching and
tracking work orders (WO) in real time, capturing data
for tracing and managing labour, as well as many others.
Mobile devices are a key component to the solution and
allow information to become available on the production
floor in real time. It also offers the ability to track
both labour and production processes in real time.
Ingredient and product recalls are processes which
require a lot of attention and can often involve five
times the amount of financial resources than it takes up
to distribute. With OCR CHAIN, the entire process becomes
traceable, allowing for increased control and visibility.
The solution allows the creation of instant recall
reports, which include rework tracking.
Each product is identified as unique and the solution
offers the ability to completely track the item’s
life-cycle. Using the detailed information that is kept
track of, your business can utilize performance
indicators in order to take proactive, informed control.
The user of the solution is able to make more informed
decisions as a result of the real-time, accurate
Integration of production and warehousing
A high level of workforce coordination is needed when
dealing with production and warehouse operations. Using
user-configurable, varying business algorithms and rules,
OCR CHAIN is able to aid in the organization of your
workers and optimize their efficiency. Using a radio
frequency (RF) network, tasks can be dispatched across
the floor in order to keep workers in the mix. This will
keep workers informed and help ensure that work processes
are completed error-free.
Real time quality control
OCR CHAIN can be used to gather check-list data in
real time and automatically detects errors when
unexpected results are entered into the system and
suggests corrective actions. To verify processes,
electronic signatures can be used.
OCR CHAIN manages operation and material costs so that
your business can accurately control and manage costs.
The solution is compatible with an ERP accounting
