MACHINERY PRODUCTION, INDUSTRIAL INSTALLATION SYSTEMS AND STEEL CONSTRUCTIONS.

MACHINERY PRODUCTION, INDUSTRIAL INSTALLATION SYSTEMS AND STEEL CONSTRUCTIONS.

Production planning software to manage production of machines / industrial installation systems and steel constructions.

You make great products, solve your Clients problems by producing advanced machines, issuing an invoice and then after covering all expenses have an unpleasant surprise: where is all the money gone?

The more complicated and ambitious the product is, the higher the risk of cost miscalculation – it is enough to lose a few % from each activity and the profit from the whole project can disappear. IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN AGAIN. THANKS TO PRODIO you will be able to not only control the time and budget, but also it will be very easy, at least as easy as Excel, which you are using now, but first and foremost adding a new machine will be really fast.

In your industry trusted us and brought in their know-how, helping to develop the software to suit ideally your needs:

  • producers of technological lines,
  • producers of advanced CNC machines on individual order,
  • producers of processing equipment and instalation of industrial tanks 
  • Respectively employing: from as small  as 10 people teams up to 130 employees (renown in Europe manufacture).

Smart and simple production planning and calculation in production of machines / industrial equipment and welded steel constructions.

You will not only learn about the real cost of machine production, but also you will be able to adjust the time and the budget – to avoid exceeding either of them

Prodio offers more than precision avaliable just at one click or the list of times of all operations divided into particular stages in product technology of a given element / a whole group of elements of wich a complete machine consists of. In Prodio you can assign planned lead time to each operation, and benefit form a really powerful tool:

  • Motivation for employees, so they know if they work below/above the set norm – it is also a great motivational and bonus awarding tool (show employees at the production hall how much time is left to exceed the norm),
  • Sums of particular estimated times for a produced element contribute towards planned lead time, so you can observe which operations were unprofitable and where you managed to make some savings.

It’s important that you will be able to control other expenses, which regulary drain your profit and are difficult to verufy, such as ex. machine setting times. 

 

Quickly add component elements,  your constructor will complete the technology – and you will able to account for his work

When you add a new product in majority of production management systems you have to divide it straight away into components and set technology – IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DO IN PER UNIT PRODUCTION. Practically speaking it takes a long time to change customer’s request into specific product consisting of different parts.

In Prodio without any problem you can add component elements in latter stages and complete technology and documentation – you can even – add up/change the structure during production process (as the practice often dictates what and how is it going to be processed first).

What’s more if you treat “Technology Preparation” as one of the operations in the technological sequence , you will be able to account for technologists/programers working time, and workers at the first machine will know whether they can proceed with their work as the documentation is ready.

Stop wasting time on typing data into Excel and monitor time used for production.

What’s the biggest problem regarding data analyses in production of machines/ equipment? The fact, that if you don’t copy data from work cards and type it to Excel daily, you might not have the chance to catch up, and that delay can cause chaos and prevent real time reaction. It is also time-consuming and you might need to hire somebody just for this pointless job.

In Prodio with one click of a magnifier tool on the list of orders, you can see clearly how long particular operation took and how it corresponds with preliminary budget set for the project – see how to turn on, a fast orders progress overview. This function can be also used for motivating employees, as when they see their real work progress they can work harder to fit in alloted time to earn their bonus.

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

Easily split whole constructions into parts

Multielement products, as a form divided into smaller parts:

  • We write the name of a form as an external order number,
  • Next, choose elements of form as products to this order (you can create them by writing the elemnt’s name on the list of adding order and click enter; later in the products bookmark fill out the technology),
  • Some companies use the “Client” box to name separate elements,
  • This approach enables getting any data from crosstable after a history export to xls.

Quickly add positions from the orders level and next register technologists work

This is one of the most favourites ways of working with Prodio – it’s tested to be useful in providing valuable data.

  1. When you know what’s on the list of your component elements, you can create them one above the other from the orders level. (see how).
  2. Next in a contruction department add ex. constructors or programmers as machines and track their progress in Prodio as elements of technology preparation (see how).
  3. Constructors update used technology at real time, attach drawings, programs on machimes and pass it on.

NOTE, THAT YOU CAN ALSO IMPORT THE LIST OF ELEMENTS FROM MS EXCEL

 

Use printed production orders, even when you use bar codes

The cards, together with a technological guidelines (see how to do it) can work as products ID card and follow it through a production process – some companies aso use stickers, generated directly from the software for particular elements of form to make things even clearer.

Use MS Excel for better analytics and make your work even more comfortable

When you use MS Excel exports you should find interesting:

  • possibility of downloading the whole working history for particular elements,
  • total orders progress including standarts.

This combination allows to get any data regarding a form production/tools in an easy way. It is also possible to reverse the process by importing data.

 

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:

As mentioned in the Tips section – the best way is to write a component element as a product, and a completed product as the external order number. When you also register the assembly and mounting times, it is worth writing the main element apart from the list of elements. 

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

It is very important to divide to desktop panels (ex. every department can see its machines/operations) constructors/ programmers as separate machines. You can also add as machines the main providers in co-operation – it will be clear where the product got stuck, when it’s not in-house.

Production plan – tips regarding displaying  and planning

Choose a horizontal view in settings and divide it to separate production hall panels – Click here 

Additional boxes, worth adding for your branch:

Link to documentation in LAN network – if you have many large files and tones of documentation that you don’t wish to upload to the cloud for safety reasons.

Additional TAG-s at the production hall and in the product categories

Types of mount/ processing. Names of larger component elements.

Frequently asked questions in machines and euipment production industry

Is it possible that a few employees/ workshops will prepare one element for a few days?

Yes, it is. Their working time will add on and sum up. It is a very interesting solution regarding night shifts, when machine can work by itself and it can be clocked on as ex. “Automate” employee – see more 

Is it possible to somehow include operations in the co-operation?

Yes, it is. Many of our Clients create additional panels named ex. Co-operation, where particular providers are set as machines. Read more

Is it possible to put data for analyses MS Excel file?

Yes, it is. You can put all production history to one clear xls file, designed to simplify storaging all analyse data.

How to set work, when an employee goes home and machine is still working?<br />

You can create an employee named automated and once the person finishes their work, simply clock in “Automate” to continue working.

Stop filling out manufacturing order forms manually!

Even though you use a computer, the paper document with parameters and packaging technological description is a must in your branch.

Instead of filling out the order form by hand with one click, you can print a clear manufacturing order for a production hall, with all necessary for completion parameters.

As a bonus, you get bar codes on your order form, and thanks to them work registration is even faster.

Flexibly assign work to the next shifts.

Now your employees will always know what to do. Are you afraid, that they might not have sufficient computer skills? Don’t be – we made it as easy as possible and intuitive.

Thanks to production technology orders automatically are divided into particular slotters, crucibles or glueing – and you save your precious time!

No more chaos at the cardboard packaging manufacture – keep your orders under control, no matter how many you get

Imagine a clear list with all orders included, with their status shown, updated timing, type of cardboard used, punching die number, graphics and visuals…

…additionally, this list is updating constantly, each time an employee enters new data. Sound like finally a dream come true – it’s possible in your branch – see for yourself 🙂

Forget lengthy calculations: count remuneration easily (including pay based on the number of pieces made), find the weakest links (especially in procedures made by hand)

Do you have to deal with high turnover at the production, so you make sure to have good efficiency and productivity rates, so you will not pay extra for cardboard packaging production? Do you base the pay rates on the number of pieces made?

It’s quite possible that you spend long hours on payroll, counting working time and trying to find dangerous and costly anomaly or fix problems with an optimal solution.  Prodio gives you instant access to necessary information at one click, and work history can be exported to MS Excel, where remuneration will be easy to calculate.

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

Collect all necessary data about packaging precisely, so you it can be sent to production with one click

  1. As additional product’s boxes (Settings- Additional boxes) define: 
    • Type of FEFCO 
    • Punching die number 
    • Polymer’s number
    • Type of print
    • Alternative cardboard formats
    • Type of printing 
    • other necessary things.
  2. Attach visualization / printing project 
    3) Prepare a default path for the product in technology section
    4) Optionally, you can set limits, for the software to show you employees efficiency and point at potential hang-arounds. 

Give the production hall clear, one “click” orders.

Make your “purchaser” a part of technological process so the cardboard ordering process will be faster and smoother

When you set Purchaser as the “Machine” in technological process, he will know see what kind of cardboard shall be ordered, and after he can check the box “ordered” – it will be a clear message for the person working the first machine that everything is ready and the production procedure can be started!

If you want to appear more professional – prepare a separate machine for both a purchaser and stock boy, which will make checking progress easer, and create a separate parameter “Where was the cardboard ordered” for the order itself.

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

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

When you are going to prepare for your Client a product more then once, it’s recommended to enter it into your database. 


Use the technology tab and set machines and their order as a default mode.

Remember, you can duplicate products and prepare various types based on one well-prepared template. 

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

You should set all machines you use for production (by their names) and hand-made procedures such as glueing, packaging, etc. 

It’s worth setting stock boy and purchaser as to the machines in the whole process. 

Additional boxes worth adding for your branch:

For the product:
FEFCO numbers
Punching die number
Polymer’s number
Type of print:
Paint numbers

For the product:
– pricing (only in options)
– method of delivery

Door carpentry / finishing woodworks.

Door carpentry / finishing woodworks.

Easy to use software for door manufacturers, furniture fronts producers and other woodwork manufacturers.

Regardless of what you produce: front door, skirting, we are impressed because managing production in your branch is a real challenge.

Practically every product has different parameters, most orders are tailored to your Clients, and the production process itself is difficult the same item sometimes needs multiple priming, sanding or polishing.

Check how can we help you to transform and simplify your production to make your daily tasks at the production hall easier and smoother.

In your branch trusted us and helped to  develop software with their know-how:

Mainly carpentry manufacturers employing groups of several people:

  • door and door panels,
  • furniture panel producers/furniture fronts,
  • manufacturers of finishing elements, such as skirting.

Simple production planning, calculations and accounting for door, windows, furniture fronts and other construction woodwork manufacturers.

Efficiently manage production at the production hall and map your working process

Unlike many much more expensive programs with full locks, Prodio can map your working process perfectly and precisely:

  • using Prodio software the same product can be run a few times through the sequence of operations such as sanding or painting, and your employee will be able to determine precisely which stage it is at,
  • Measurements defined by your Client can be displayed for the duration of the production without unnecessary clicking,
  • it is possible to colour tag the group of products or their features.

Every day employees can easily navigate among dozens of completed projects thanks to production orders with bar codes.

 

Thanks to the orders printouts that “travel” as the product is moved from place to place, all employees know what’s what – and registration of progress can be done with bar code readers.

This solution ensures the registration process is swift and takes no longer than a few seconds, and you have an active progress view.

Thanks to product templates you save time, standardize work procedures and minimize mistakes.

The rule is simple – instead of creating each time a product for the same Client, use the earlier defined template adding only data specific for that order.  

This is possible thanks to any number of extra boxes, which you can add to your orders and products, and a possibility of attaching graphic files. How to add additional parameters?

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

Prepare product templates; all that is left to do later – fill out personalized for your Client boxes.

Suppose we look at the example of a custom-made door order. Creating a new product each time for different measurements and combinations would be mad and a waste of time.

It proves a better solution to prepare templates for main groups/types of products you have, add to the production technology and everything constant and repetitive and drag it to your current order.

When a client places an order you can complete information directly in the created template and fill out boxes for the type of finish, size, door handle type – in this way, clear information will get to the production.

joiner software

Give the production hall clear, one “click” orders 

When you move very fast from order to order, it is essential to make the whole process as easy as possible.

Print manuals with bar codes, which you put at the production hall and use bar codes for registration.

Use tags to mark particular priming or sanding – to see clearly the stages of the whole process

This technology (as long as it happens at the same working station) separate priming and sanding marking them as different processes – in the tog box type which time this is.

Thanks to this step, you and your employees would see exactly which stage you are at and if you are stuck, where the problem is.

 

carpentry software

To produce multiple-element products use tagging to mark their parts 

Technology of the product allows you to  set up a path both for door, as well as door frame, by tagging “door” and “frame” and clarifying that division. 

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

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

The main type of products which you are going to personalize for the order.

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

We recommend dividing into procedures ex: sanding, priming, varnishing, assembly, and particular machines such as saw, file, etc.

Make sure to divide your view into separate production halls, to make it clear.

Production plan – tips regarding displaying  and planning

You must turn on previous operations tagging, so your employees know where to start and which procedure is still incomplete or queuing. How does it work? 

Additional boxes, worth adding for your branch:

All features personalized in the product:
– parameters,
– RAL colour (we recommend dividing it into white/others),
– finishing, etc.

Additional TAG-s at the production hall and in the product categories

– types of processing, ex. Sanding 1, Sanding 2,
– components, ex. frame/door wing,
– colours: white / colour (plus the RAL number in the product description).

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 colours – add them as tags to operations, to be clearly visible on the production plan.

Organize molds marking and preparatory processes

When you create 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 marking 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:

MACHINING / CNC centers

MACHINING / CNC centers

Production management software to manage production in machining / CNC manufacturing business

Supposedly it’s not the first time you searched for production management software – usually it turned out that because of too many production options in ERP you would lose flexibility and would be forced to hire someone to fill out all required data…

We also know that due to many leasing contracts for CNC machines, usage of tools and last but not least, the costs of remunerations, you are still searching for something, which would help you to increase profitability.

Prodio is an answer to all your problems, as you can find all you need for your employees to know precisely what to do, when and how. The data is avaliable at real time, so you can make fast decissions to increase efficiency and simplify work.

Prodio develops every day thanks to feedback from:

  • A large group of companies (employing from 6 to more than 75 people) which produce individual / small series steel and aluminium elements;
  • Companies offering processing services as an outsourcing / reconditioning of elements;
  • Construction manufacturing companies producing elements to order;
  • Many tooling departments (you can read more about tooling departments here).

Simple planning and calculation in machining / CNC centers.

cloud based manufacturing software

Perfect production calculation without the necessity to copy data from production orders 

You will get all necessary tools to manage your production and metal processing effectively: 

  • total lead time spend on a particular order, in comparison with estimated time (and spare time left),
  • actual efficiency of particular employees at production, divided by operations, including the percentage of completed norm, 
  • lead times divided into production time and machine preparation/changeover time,
  • optionally number of damaged pieces and the amount of raw material used,
  • any analyses, thanks to various xls export options.

Machine tool work divided proportionally and efficiently  

Forget spreadsheets / whiteboards at the production hall; thanks to canban style board you are able to prepare faster and more precisely plan of work for machines – especially including estimated machines occupancy in hours/ days /weeks …

Don’t be fooled by a simple form, thanks to clever modifications in the schedule you can incorporate:

  • divission into preliminary / finishing processing,
  • different types of mount / tool on the same machine,
  • preparation / changeover time.

All documentation and product parameters are in one place and you can share them wherever it is necessary

.

Transparent product technology in Prodio allows you to collect in just a few simple steps all information on product making process and necessary know how, the sequence of operations and estimated efficiency.

Apart from parameters you can add to products visualizations and photographs, technical drawings or programs to be downloaded for particular machines. See how to attach large files, without uploading them to a website.

To organize your production hall even better, you can print with one click technological guides containing all information about the product, which can follow the production path making work clear and easy – print a production order (technological guide with production orders and bar codes used to register work).

Simplify your “ISO 9001” significantly, and impress auditors!

Thanks to Prodio you don’t have to worry about majority of requirements regarding ISO 9001 / TS 16949 / Factory Production Control. It is possible to throw away many forms, product cards and paper orders – all you need is in your computer.

Because you can also attach PDF manuals and control guidelines, as well as photographs of potential production defects, you can really lower deficiency and the QUALITY  catchphrase becomes a reality. The time spent on training new employees is also shorter. 

As a bonus,  certifying authorities will be truly impressed and Clients positively surprised during audits, especially when their “SAPs”, might be very often 2 steps behind.

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

Make the most of production technology module, adjusting it to your processing industry

To use fully a production technology module it is recommended to: 

  • set operations path for each product to follow,
  • tag operations requiring use of the same machine multiple times (ex. with the type of mount or preliminary/finishing processing),
  • attach  technical drawings and numeric machine program,
  • attach machine SETTINGS.

Register, where else the time is wasted, excluding processing

Technologist and machine preparation time are as valuable as a real production time, but they are very often neglected hence not monitored – and in your industry, this is a possible money leakage.

Make sure you add in production technology, a machine named “Technologist” and ask constructors, preparing machines software and technical documentation to clock it in/out each time.

It is also recommended to divide operations into SETTING and production time, to see clearly who is holding you back.

Use RWT module as a bonus: see how registration of employees check-ins and check-outs works and compare their attendance and machine working time.

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

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

A particular element you produce – ex. distance.
When you offer processing services it is good to set up general products such as “final machining”, and add exact parameters in order details.

To analyse efficiency and plan work better add in product options a production technology.

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

It is suggested to use machine MIX ex. FANUC 3-axis, and operations such as welding, final processing and quality control. 
TIP: Constructors/programers can be set as separate “machines” to enable following their working time.
TIP: Main providers in co-operation can also be set as machines, so you can easily trace the products.

Production plan – tips regarding displaying  and planning

Set a horizontal view and divide dashboards for a particular production hall.

Additional boxes, worth adding to your branch:

For a product:

  • Number of CNC programme
  • Tool used 

Additional TAG-s at the production hall and in the product categories

Changes such as types of mounting on machine and types of finishing (preliminary and final). How to set it: CLICK
