Achieve visibility and traceability of the factory floor
Easy, live scheduling and visibility of the manufacturing floor
- AspectPL digitises your production floor which means no more manual scheduling and data entry.
- With AspectPL you no longer need to transfer work orders into a separate system, no creating a schedule that is out of date the minute it starts, no more constantly updating the schedule.
- AspectPL enables you to drag and drop your work orders into a system that can create a schedule, that is linked to your machines.
- AspectPL gives total visibility of the production floor – in real time. No more walking across the production floor to check machines.
Simple and affordable ERP integration and whole company access to production floor data - at anytime
- AspectPL can operate with your existing ERP system by installing a single PLC. A PLC is a data collector which enables the AspectPL data to be fed into your ERP – making your ERP ‘live’. Your ERP provider cannot offer the visibility and real time data provided by the AspectPL IP.
- AspectPL is licensed per machine, line or workstation – not per user. There is no limit to how many people can be logged on at one time. This means everyone from production staff to executive management has access to live production data.
- Use the AspectPL APP to check the status of your machines from anywhere, anytime on your smart phone. No more walking across the production floor to check machines, no more squinting at camera feeds. Real time data about what your machine is doing from anywhere, at any time.
AspectPL data is an efficiency tool for your Production Team
- AspectPL helps achieve a paperless manufacturing floor. No more work orders and schedules on paper/clipboards. Digitally attach an SOP or a finished product visual for easy viewing for production staff.
- The added visibility and traceability AspectPL offers gives more control to your production team. This increased efficiency allows your team the time to critique production processes and suggest improvements.
- If a long serving production team member left the company how much production knowledge would go with him/her? AspectPL embeds the inherent or ‘tribal’ knowledge of your production team into digital technology.
- AspectPL empowers existing production methodologies like 5S and Kaizen. AspectPL is a ‘decision support system’. The data, traceability and visibility AspectPL provides, helps your teams make decisions based on fact.
- More visibility for your business means more easily available information for your customers. Your team can access production plans and answer customer queries in real time.
AspectPL tools offer production traceability and transparency for quality management
- AspectPL provides a bar code system that makes the entire production process traceable – from the production floor to the warehouse and despatch.
- Carton, pallet labels and barcodes are linked into AspectPL to help manage quality control and account for rejects.
- Quality issues can be traced to (what) job is it, (when) was it was produced and (who) packed it. The data can also be seamlessly integrated back into your ERP – which means no more manual data entry.
AspectPL is affordable, scalable and helps businesses gain efficiencies through accurate data
- AspectPL is affordable with a one-off establishment cost and a monthly software license fee.
- With Aspect PL you only need one centralised PLC (not individual PLCs at every machine) which enables cost savings. Your ERP vendor cannot compete on value.
- AspectPL can work with your existing plant. AspectPL helps you get the most OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) out of the machines you already have.
- AspectPL is scalable and can manage 5 to 100 plus machines. If your plant grows – AspectPL can grow with it.
- Have multiple sites? Installing AspectPL over several sites gives visibility, traceability and data for comparison between sites.
- The agility and flexibility of AspectPL means company wide strategies like Industry 4 and the Internet of things don’t need to be a barrier to achieving improved OEE – quickly. AspectPL can work with and grow alongside other business systems.
- AspectPL data helps businesses reduce stock, reduce casual labour resource and reduce overtime. It encourages lean manufacturing principles which can increase OEE by 15%.
