An overview to your manufacturing

Globalized, complex trade flows and increasing demands on delivery capability and time, cost, lead time, pricing, capacity utilization, picking, project management, and quality all needs to be handled in the manufacturing industry. Manufacturing companies need a streamlined flow that covers processes in information, supply and product management.
The market and consumers place many demands on the production companies and the conditions of competition are fierce and constantly evolving. Thorough optimizations in the process work and the implementation of the right technology make it possible to navigate the complex production field.

Maintaining quality, growth potential and the avoidance of bottlenecks

Being part of a large and global machinery provides many opportunities and perspectives, but also many unpredictabilities, challenges and pitfalls concerning making stupid expensive mistakes that can delay your production flow. A deficiency in a mold can be another costly affair if the mistake is not discovered before the quality control and hence must be discarded. Yet it can be even more expensive if the mistake is not adjusted before the next batch is set into production.

Another key challenge facing other production companies is getting the necessary amount of labor in order to meet the demands. This creates demands for training periods Information storage and automatization of a number of work processes. At the same time the customers place huge demands on product development handling and innovation. Hence making their purchasing patterns difficult to predict. Thus the use of advanced data insight and Machine Learning can be necessary in targeting the correct purchasing cycle and it affects the foundation to systematize your entire production.

In short many bottlenecks are connected with a production. These are due to perhaps silo work lack of survey or cross communication. It is about identifying the bottlenecks and solving the problems in real time. About having the right goods on the warehouse shelves at the right places. Regardless of the size of your production company there will be a gain in streamlining and optimizing the warehouse management and the production adjustments.

Optimize your manufacturing flow

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central contains a module that supports the company’s planning, execution and follow-up of productions. The module maintains relevant master data for production, and planning and disposal can be done to production and procurement (MRP/MPS). You can thus handle the production execution with consumption records and final reports and easily make post-calculations on the production. Also, you can ensure that the production errors are caught before the quality control. The sensors in modern production equipment can measure and report the quality of the appliances and production. Via data based on MES or IoT technologies, information and reports can be sent in a dynamic flow. This way, error messages can be detected quickly by the operator and adjusted.

Collection of reports and data can be used to analyze the condition of the appliances. This makes it easier to predict future maintenance. To get the most efficient use of your data, it makes sense to think analysis and post-calculation from the start. At Notora, we are experienced in the various industries we work with. This applies to both order and warehouse producing companies.
