Manufacturing software for carpenters and 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 complex; the same item sometimes needs multiple priming, sanding or polishing.

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

In your industry, trusted us small carpentry manufacturers:

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

Benefits for CARPENTING AND WOODWORKS INDUSTRY

Effective production planning and costs tracking.

Efficiently manage production on the shop floor 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 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 for your industry

Check how to customize your new manufacturing software

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

Suppose we look at the example of a custom-made door order. Creating a new product 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, 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.

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 where the problem is if you are stuck.

 

 

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

The product’s technology allows you to set up a path both for the door and a 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 primary type of products which you are going to personalise 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

It would be best to 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 personalised 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).

Frequently asked questions by door, windows, furniture fronts and other construction woodwork manufacturers.

1. 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.

2. 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, clearly displayed on the shop floor.
