Tips and tricks, how to adjust your new production management software

Assign employees and their shift number to orders lasting more then a couple of days

In your industry, there is sometimes one operator working on two or more machines, so to make it clearer, apart from the order of tasks:

You perfect products database

From now on your company whole know-how can be finally stored – all parameters are going straight into software

1. In Settings (Settings – Additional boxes), such as ex. mould number, mould temperature, injection time / vulcanisation, degassing times, number of connectors.

2. Add to a product in form of attachment photographs of example defects (complaints based), as well as photographic documentation of moulds assembly on particular machines. 

3. In product technology set machines, which the product is made on, and their respective norms.

4. When you produce the same product in various colors – add them as tags to operations, to be clearly visible on the production plan. 

Organize moulds marking and preparatory processes

When you creata additional boxes for the product make sure you create a box with MOULD NUMBER, and to number it use their products ID from Prodio or from 1 to 100 and so on.

When you organize mould assembly operations on machines, it’s worth to mark them as additional operations (SETTINGS), because:

  • you can learn real-times and costs of changeovers,
  • you can attach photographic documentation and manuals for your assembly employees to optimize the whole process further.

Short-list with other suggested settings and useful tricks in production management:

What is the best to write down and set as “product” in Prodio:

A given detail, together with its production technology. The folowing details can be added based on copy of that first one.

Production plan – what can you set as machines / operations?

Particular injection moulding machines – best in the order they are placed at the production hall. You can also add quality control or breaking off.

Production plan – tips regarding displaying  and planning

Machine order should mirror their placement at the production hall. In announcements you can let employees know who is working which shift.
