At the production stage, you can read the panel data from the labels using modern scanner solutions based on Win CE, and can therefore enter bookings easily and on a mobile basis, which triggers the required processing steps on the machine and forwards the corresponding status feedback regarding the location and status of the glass to the upstream PPS and ERP system.
Using a mobile capacity display, you subsequently monitor the status and production progress of the orders and the capacities of the entire production process. You can view the capacity utilization of your production lines on a mobile basis at any time, and can also query details regarding the orders and jobs that have been entered. This also helps you with coordinating orders and lead times for larger building projects and other projects with your customers and suppliers, if needed, directly at the construction site.
Using a mobile machine control panel, you can also monitor the status of individual machines or machine assemblies so that bottlenecks or a decrease in output can be identified early on and counter measures can be implemented.
Once the orders have been completed and packed, they must be delivered to the customer in a timely manner and if needed, directly to the construction site. Here too, you and your employees can benefit from A+W's mobile applications. Drivers can call up routes and delivery information on-line and report completed deliveries. Breakage and the unloading of racks can also be entered and reported directly to the office. Using the integrated A+W systems, this data can now be posted and additional production processes can be initiated in the case of breakages or incorrect amounts. DIFOT - Delivery in Full On Time - no problem!
In keeping with the trend towards Industry 4.0, A+W software already provides access to all of the required information on a continuous basis. Whether in the work preparation stage, order entry, or on the road, you always have a full overview and are able to intervene and manage processes.
