Objective

Inputs of different nature and urgency

These consumables may require different origins. Orders are generated based on estimates for the quantity of parts assembled at each point and require specific replacements.

Solution

NFC sensors, field apps and zone terminals

The generated parts are labelled with NFC technology and scanned with an Android smart device, mobile or installed as a zone terminal, so that each finished part is registered in CHECKINGplan. With a certain number of complete parts, the platform is sent the replacement notice and receives additional requests.

Benefit

  • Control and management of production material.
  • Optimise distribution routes and development times.
  • Time measurement implemented in task development.
  • Traceability of parts and productive monitoring of each work station.
