A Shop Floor Control System leads to the greatest possible transparency of the production and cost structure of your business. You are constantly informed of the current order progress, machine occupancy and material consumption in your production processes. You have the ability to retain control of machine processes such as make ready time, production, downtime or overhead periods as well as all production relevant data. Furthermore C3 SFC provides all data for the actual job calculation without additional effort. Withdrawals of materials are registered in the SFC to avoid unchecked material and goods usage resulting in incorrect stock levels or missed bookings.
The SFC terminal gives production employees access to the product description, target quantities and all data relevant to quality assurance via a “Digital Job Ticket”. Goods quantities and consumption volumes of finished or semi-finished products can be entered via the SFC terminal and the required logistics markings e.g. pallet slips or box labels can be printed.
Shop floor data collection to production order and articles
The production data can be registered in normal computer work jobs, mobile equipment or through daily report slips. C3 produces special barcodes for articles and products, making the recording of the use of stock and materials easy and error-free for your production employees. In addition, there is an integrated project time registration through which dates and times can be recorded and analyzed after specific orders, quotations, projects or customers. Employee work hours can be recorded (start/ break/ finish) to facilitate accounting for payrolls.
Accounting with time overview of the SFC
The evaluation of the recorded material withdrawals and processing times leads to the establishment of “green” and “red” areas, which are directly compared with the preliminary costing. This lets you see at a glance whether the order was processed at a profit, where problems emerged or if the assumptions made during costing were incorrect. Detailed evaluations on divisional, resource or material levels allow non-profitable production steps to be identified.
Working with printed production orders has always been difficult: it gets lost, destroyed or dirty beyond recognition. Either way the neede effort to work with printed orders is high and time-consuming.
The digital production order takes you to a new level: instead of carrying a printed order around in your order bag, the digital production order is always up-to-date and shows, e.g. the QA instruction you just entered. You can call it up at any time from any location, it cannot be lost or soiled and the paper saved by not printing protects the environment. A WIN – WIN – WIN situation!
