New Challenges in
Many industries are
undergoing major changes with significant impact on their
manufacturing and logistics operations. Many pressures
exist and are consistent across all
- Increasing return
- Improving product
customer and market
Under this context, many
initiatives are taking places around the following
- Supply chain
manufacturing Real time inventory visibility and
- Product recall
management Labour management
OCR CHAIN MES is a
Manufacturing Execution System that will enables you to
achieve World Class Manufacturing.
From the creation of the
production schedule to dispatching and real-time tracking
of work orders (WO) to production data capture for labour
management and traceability requirements, OCR CHAIN MES
offers a complete and powerful solution. Integrating
different mobile technologies, the information is
available in real-time directly on the production floor.
Production schedules are visible directly at the
production stations. Operators use handheld devices to
confirm material movement. Real time execution enables
real time visibility.
Product and ingredient
recalls are operations that demand a lot of attention,
especially recognizing the fact that recalling a product
involves 5 times the financial resources than
distributing it. With OCR CHAIN, traceability becomes
part of the manufacturing process, allowing for split
second recall reports, including rework tracking. Real
time inventory visibility and control.
Since all products are
uniquely identified, complete product life-cycle tracking
is available. Based on this data, detailed information is
available for dynamic dashboards using key performance
indicators for proactive control. The user is always one
click away from accurate real-time information that
allows him/her to make better decisions.
Integration of production
and warehousing functions.
Warehousing and production
operations are complex and require a high level of
coordination. OCR CHAIN optimizes execution of tasks
using different user-configurable business rules and
algorithms. The workload can be dispatched via a radio
frequency (RF) network directly to the operators on the
floor. Everyone knows what to do, and everything is done
in the right sequence with a high level of accuracy.
Exceptions are quickly identified by the system and
reported for proper actions.
Real time quality
OCR CHAIN enables real
time check-list data gathering and automatically gives
corrective actions when an unexpected result is entered.
Electronic signatures cover verifications to help ensure
complete quality. Precise cost control.
OCR CHAIN manages both
material and operational costs for accurate cost control.
This information can easily be integrated with an ERP /
accounting software program.
