You will only experience the full potential of our solution once you start using it. Trying to help you while making decision on it, we briefly summarized what you can get from MeMOM.
To automate your production processes, you need to define your products, their features and manufacturing processes (recipes, rules, assembly and transportation sequences, instructions etc.). This effort will pay out later while you need to optimise and automate decision making. You choose how deep your definitions are depending on what you need.
Your resources are your workers and their competences, your machines, tools, materials, energy and scrap. With MeMOM you know what are you resources capacities and allocation as well as current and future availability. You can share this information with other producers, thanks to widely accepted standards used by us, to improve use of your resources and boost their efficiency. Knowing your energy usage per machine and having identified scrap generated, you can easily manage your environmental requirements and generate savings.
Scheduling and planning
This is the heart of MeMOM, as all roads to improving the efficiency of your factory lead to optimal scheduling and planning. In smart factories this must be done as automated as possible, based on predictive capacity, to be able to adapt to changing conditions, such as short production series, changes in orders and available resources, detected failures and other deviances detected on the shop floor.
Execution managing and tracking
You can follow actual production processes and execute activities such as selection and start of production steps according to earlier definitions and instructions. You can also manage the transfer from one production step to the next. Information regarding the materials utilized and the processing time are collected from the shop floor. Thus, you are updated with the status and current progress of the orders. Based on this information, the production steps can be locally optimized.
You are able to define quality requirements and procedures for quality testing. You can plan your test frequency and define tolerance ranges for material and equipment. If any failure is detected, your schedules can be changed in real-time in order to fix it or produce an item again. Thanks to our reports, you can implement prevention actions to avoid quality failures in the future.
Dispatching means allocating particular resources to individual tasks. For instance, if you defined a competences matrix for your staff, now you will be able to automate allocating the right people to do the right job. Or you can automatically allocate machinery having required production parameters to the tasks with more specific quality tolerance requirements.
Not only is it extremally useful to know what was happening with every element of your product and material during the manufacturing processes. Have you heard about Digital Product Passport? It is a set of information about a product, such as materials from which it was done, % of recycled materials used, carbon footprint etc. This will be not only a legal obligation of the factories of tomorrow, but also very effective tool to improve your material and energy efficiency.
Define and manage information and instructions needed for performing maintenance work of your machines, robots and tools. Enable automate scheduling and planning of the maintenance works with the lowest negative impact for your production capacities. Dispatch the right people to do this work.
