HarrisData Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES)
- HarrisData Integrated Solutions
Integration between MES and ERP allows manufacturers to achieve the next level of performance improvement and execution. The ability to have "real-time" connections that move information between the customer order and the shop floor facilitates improvements in customer service while allowing Management to realize more and better control over the manufacturing process.
- Shop Floor Scheduling
Shop Floor Scheduling allows for the identification of key work centers utilizing finite forward loading to ensure optimum production performance. Schedule simulation mode allows management to evaluate and analyze proposed changes to schedules in real time and then commit those changes to the schedule with instant results.
- On-line Dispatch
On-line dispatch capabilities allow management to manage schedules and redirect shop floor activities in a controlled and automated environment. Prioritized tasks are dispatched to specific work centers as approved, delivering on-line work-list capability. Access to electronic dispatch can be provided via a Terminal or Touch Screen Device to facilitate real-time data collection.
- Shop Floor Data Collection
This functionality allows for schedule information from the Shop Floor to be communicated back to management in real time. Employees can "clock off" or "clock on" from a terminal, scanner, touch screen device, or an external clock. Shop floor data collection captures work order status and labor usage as it occurs, giving Management the flexibility to adjust to unplanned shortages or surpluses.
- Time and Attendance
Efficient shop floor management requires real time knowledge of employee availability. Tracking of time and attendance provides a basis unreported time accounting. The ability to know which employees are scheduled and which are available on a real time moment's notice can drastically effect the efficiency of a day's schedule.
- Shop Floor Labor Management
Direct labor costs associated with production of product directly affect costing and ledger systems. Detailed accounting for the employee's full day, including work time, break time, and down time is recorded and shared with your human resource system for an accurate picture of the productivity of employees as well as the effectiveness of shop floor management.
