Manufacturing software for CNC workshops/machining

Supposedly it’s not the first time you searched for production management software. Usually, it turned out that you would lose flexibility because of too many production options in ERP and 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. In addition, the data is available in real-time, so you can make fast decisions to increase efficiency and simplify work.

In your industry trusted us small companies:

  • employing from 6 to more than 75 people that 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).

“I am glad we use this software. It makes our job a breeze and helps everybody in the company. Scanning feature is amazing: someone comes to work, clocks-in and they can start work straight away”.

“It is a very beneficial system to be able to operate our production. Starting from the basic planning of an item, the registration of each of our operators and then the production costs specified in the chart, the process has generated an accessible facility for each AgiliTECH user. So my perspective as a user has been a positive experience.”

From anywhere in the world I can see what is produced and its quantity.

Once we implemented Prodio in Uponor, we gained complete visibility and control over all production floors simultaneously. The communication between pianists and operators has improved, and the number of bottlenecks (due to incomplete documentation or insufficient information) was reduced. The essential element is the history of all manufacturing operations because it allows us to prepare detailed reports. We know which machines work efficiently or what should be optimized. We produce customized goods, which vary from order to order. PRODIO team is flexible and helps with adjusting the software to our specific needs.

Benefits for CNC INDUSTRY

Here is how Prodio answers your industry needs

Perfect production tracking and cost analyses without the necessity to copy the data from production orders. 

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

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

Machine tool work is divided proportionally and efficiently  

Forget spreadsheets/whiteboards at the production hall; thanks to the kanban style board, you can prepare a 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:

  • the division 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 necessary.

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

Apart from parameters, you can add product visualizations and photographs, technical drawings, or programs for particular machines. Also, 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 most 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 on your computer.

Because you can also attach PDF manuals and control guidelines, as well as photographs of potential product 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

Tips and tricks, showing you how to adjust your new manufacturing software

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

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

  • set operations path for each product to follow,
  • tag operations requiring the 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.

Use printed production orders, even if you don’t use a bar codes system

Cards with printed technological guidelines (see how to do it) can be useful as ID cards.

How to print it? Click the link.

 

Accept smaller orders and plan work without going anywhere on the computer.

Thanks to fully mobile access to the software, you can plan work and take photos directly from your smartphone, especially when it’s a small processing order.

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/programmers 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 program 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
