A WIP or inventory location can be either a physical location or a virtual location that is mapped to a specific area. Factory Flow's location systems use a similar numbering system to identify specific areas of the shopfloor where items are stored. Location numbers can be useful in a variety of ways, not the least of which is determining stock/WIP levels. When you know where an item is stored, it is easier to keep track of it and locate instantly when required.
Tracking Downtime: Increasing Maintenance Efficiency with the Factory Flow ANDON system
The core objective of the Maintenance Andon system is to facilitate enhanced communication and bolster the exchange of information among manufacturing operators, team leaders, and external technicians whenever a production issue emerges. Moreover, the fundamental principle underpinning the Maintenance Andon is aimed at curbing production downtime at its origin and preventing its propagation downstream. The concept is centered around early problem detection, recognizing that addressing issues promptly is more cost-effective than rectifying them later in the production cycle, particularly within a manufacturing context.
Perfect for companies that are committed to enhancing quality, boosting efficiency, and optimizing day-to-day processes.
