iKvant – Production Automation and Management System
iKvant – Overview
Production with top effectivity
iKvant system automates management and maintenance of production. System provides full control over production process from planning to marking of completed goods and shipment of products to the customer. System is intended for small and medium-sized enterprises of the light and food industry. System minimize efforts and increase management capabilities by giving whole real time workflow information and controlling tools to affect it.
Sales with maximal profit
iKvant automates all stages of the production cycle and makes it orientated to maximal sales. This includes workflow optimization according to received customer’s orders priority, real time information and management of inventory stock for finished goods. System includes advanced tools for work of the sales department. At any time sales managers are informed about ordered goods progress, loading and shipments to customers.
Performance best possible
iKvant includes monitoring and analytics modules, which allows you to identify bottlenecks in the current production process, and give actual information for monitoring and self-control to production-level personnel to ensure the implementation of established production plans. Full flexible control over the details of the technological process allows to maintain maximum economic efficiency of the enterprise even in the event of a rapid change in market conditions.
Production system in its advanced version providing extended solution for such important factors of production workflow as workers productivity and material movement through warehouse for all grades in dedicated cages.
For workers there will be automatically provided information about personal plan to achieve for the shift and practically handled amount of material. System is handling data and actual performed plan for workers productivity collected at all production working places and individual working positions.
For collection of trolleys with materials movement status there supported scanning of trolleys with integrated barcode or RFID tag at each working place and single working position. There could be also a dedicated position of trolleys loading and unloading at chosen areas of warehouse.
These actions support allows to count handled amount of goods at working positions at each moment of time, compare it to actual time moment taken shift plan, evaluate individual worker’s performance, to observe location of trolleys and availability of needed raw material at working position’s input.
All these steps are supported with additional automation modules, which could be integrated in chosen subsets to individual positions in selected set or for all positions of the factory.
It’s needed to put attention to special point of presented economical advantage of used technology in this implementation due to wide usage of Raspberry platform computers as head carrier of individual working positions automation. This effective solution allows to reduce expenses significantly and still keep all needed performance with getting even higher stability and secure run of factory position automation dedicated to operate on single task, which uses resources most effectively information.
