Production management software to manage production of elastomer goods
Probably you heard it many times: “how hard can producing a rubber o-ring could be”… An average layperson has no idea about many years of know-how behind your production and a huge responsibility for the products you make.
Each, even tiny, inaccuracy of parameters at the press, incorrect mold lay or every small mistake, result in waste of energy, time and expensive silicone material. The worst case scenario would be if the faulty batch gets to a Client…
In Prodio we know exactly what you need in your industry, to manage production better because it’s where in 2016 we created the first version of software. You are welcome to use our experience instead of reinventing the wheel.
In your industry trusted us, brought their know-how and helped to develop the software to suit your needs even better: Producers of rubber and silicone products, with 3 to 82 employees at the production hall, making goods for:
- automotive industry
- gas and plumbing installation systems
- technical sealing / orings of various types
- metal elements gumming
- sealing / felt pads, foams, PTFE production
On top of that Prodio helps in tool shops (internal or recommended by contractors)
See, how many hours upfront a particular press is occupied
Thanks to using norms for your products, you can see clearly how many hours upfront a particular press is occupied – the status gets updated as the employees give the number of pieces finished.
It’s a good idea to include in the production plan changeovers / mold change.
Clear production plan for presses, so the employees would always know what to do, without constant questions
One employee works on several presses – it isn’t a problem. Thanks to planning orders for particular machines, and indicating who is responsible for a particular order, you can make a production plan tailored perfectly for your company, so nobody would stand idly by, waiting to be assigned a task, with the production put on hold until you finish this process.
…finally organize your precious KNOW-HOW
Each new employee means, that the same mistakes are repeated and you have to solve the same old problems. You have already wasted a few thousand euros in raw materials, because of mistakes, which could have been easily avoided if only people remembered and there was a proper database of knowledge.
From now on all company know-how finally stays – parameters are in the software, together with photographs of potential defects, elements requiring special attention, to further improve the quality.
If you strive for perfection – you can attach photographs and manuals regarding mold assembly.
Tips and tricks, how to adjust your new production management software
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 particular detail with its production technology.
The following details you can add based on a copy of the first one.
Production plan – what can you set as machines / operations?
Particular injection molding machines – best in the order, they are placed at the production hall. You can also add a quality control or breaking off.
Production plan – tips regarding displaying and planning
The order of machines, best to mirror the sequence in which they are placed at the production hall. In announcements you can give information on who works which shift and when they are due to start.
Additional boxes, worth adding in your branch:
To a product:
– mold number
– heaters temperature
– vulcanization times
– additional comments for laying a mold
– additional comments for mold mounting
– additional comments for product’s control
Additional TAG-s at the production hall and in the product categories
Shifts (ex. mornig, afternoon, night)
Frequently asked questions by elastomer product 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 product’s technology part, which can be clearly displayed at the production hall.
