Effective production planning and costs calculating for TOOL SHOPS
When others admire your modern tooling centers, they might be uder the impression that you are filthy rich. But we know the truth about the huge labour costs, leasing installments and tools. Sometimes efficiency of just 4-5% higher than your competitors decides that the business is worth doing and you don’t pay into it.
Together with the gems among Polish tool shops we developed a production management system, which can get your company to the same great level as your tools, within just a few days and for a fraction of costs of implementation of ERP. On one hand, we focused on controlling hundreds of components you have, on the other, we would like to give you a hard proof data on products profitability and calculation.
In your industry trusted us and brought in their know-how, helping to develop the software to suit ideally your needs:
- all type of tool shops
- with 8 to 80 employees hired, providing service for clients in the whole Europe
- from such simple products as drills, through all types of plates, electrodes
- to injection forms, consisting of more then 1000 elements
You can find easily where the production of particular tool got stuck and make necessary changes
The employees register their real time progress at the production hall, and you can see with just one click, thanks to smart filters settings the stage of production of tens and hundreds of elements, which are components of a given produced tool. Quick overview of order’s progress.
You can make real time changes in sequence of operations from any place in the world and those changes will be displayed straight away in your production hall and visible to your employees. What’s more it is easy and intuitive, so within a few hours you will be able to find your way round better, then in MS Excel, with the great advantage of Prodio being always up to date with real production data.
Stop wasting time on typing data into Excel and monitor time used for production.
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.
In Prodio with one click of magnifier tool on the list of orders, you can see clearly how long particular operation took and how it corresponds with preliminary time set for the project. This function can be also used for motivating employees, as when they see their real work progress they can work harder to fit in set time to earn their bonus – LINK.
Quickly add component elements, your constructor will complete the technology – and you 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/programmers working time, and workers at the first machine will know whether they can proceed with their work as the documentation is ready.

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 component element as a product, and a completed product as the external order number. When you also register assembly and mounting times, it is worth to write the main element apart from the list of elements.
