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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
– 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).
Frequently asked questions by door, windows, furniture fronts and other construction woodwork manufacturers.
Is it possible for the one operator to operate multiple machines at the same time?
Yes, it is. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be possible to register production effectively in your branch.
Is it possible to include additional procedures such as form assembly or packaging?
Yes, it is. It is possible to create different technological sequences as the product’s technology part, which can be clearly displayed at the production hall.
While working od different projects Clients trust us with their documentation which is often confidential - is Prodio a safe solution?
We do our best safeguard your secrets – it is clear that our business’s future depends on it.
In 90-95% of the case, data in Prodio is more secure than saved locally:
– connections to web browser are encrypted,
– the server is located in one of the leading and best-secured data centre in Europe,
– in our company, only two people have access to full data, and they have financial liability,
– together with security experts we request a paid simulations of hacking and breaking in to assess and update the level of security,
– separate server archives data a few times a day.
We are ready to sign NDA agreement upon request of our regular Clients.
