In multi-variant production, a tool for displaying assembly steps has become indispensable. Such a tool can provide digital information in production in many ways. In this way, its workers are supported during assembly, and work sequences can be evaluated and analysed. Complex products can be assembled error-free in the shortest possible time with such a worker assistance system. With prodwatch, apronic offers you a wide range of options with which a multitude of production optimisations are possible.
Create transparency in your production processes!
prodwatch is the intelligent worker assistance system from apronic. prodwatch helps to meet the challenges of everyday production. Communication at the workstation takes place with the help of digital end devices such as tablets, notebooks or panel PCs. Drawings or work plans no longer have to be kept in folders and made available, but can be accessed digitally. Step-by-step instructions are an important aid, especially for new employees and complex processes. Assembly errors or quality defects are reduced and can even be completely avoided through integrated inspection processes. The result is less scrap. Since errors or uncertainties in the process can never be ruled out, the employee can use Alarmanagement to inform his supervisor or the responsible department directly. The data on the production process is stored centrally in a database and can be used for optimisation or as proof of quality for your customers.
prodwatch comes with a wide range of functions for worker assistance. These can be configured independently and adapted further and further so that a continuous improvement process is possible.
Work and assembly steps are constantly optimised and adapted in many production processes. Products that are newly introduced to the market must be manufactured in new production processes. In both cases, it is essential that the necessary work steps are displayed at the assembly stations and that the visualisation can be quickly created or adapted at any time.
With the help of a graphic editor, the individual work steps are created and assigned to the correct assembly station. The creation of an assembly step is uncomplicated and simple. Choose from a variety of ready-made widgets, which you place by drag & drop. In addition to conventional display elements, such as actual or target piece counts, you will also find widgets in the editor for displaying errors or faults within the production line, work contents or material lists. It is also easy to display PDF or video and image files.
As soon as the work steps have been designed, they can be dragged and dropped onto the corresponding assembly stations. The individual work steps can be provided with a target cycle time. This enables precise clocking out of the workstations. Advantage: It can be seen directly which areas have too high a workload. In this way, measures can be taken, such as shifting these labour-intensive areas to other stations.
