Improve productivity by looking at the numbers.
Do you look at any numbers beside the post-production results?
Have you ever questioned if the current productivity represents the real capacity?
If you do not manage productivity in real time, productivity can drop for many reasons:
delays in understanding problems and handling bottlenecks, for instance.
How you manage productivity can directly affect the improvement of the productivity.
The key to productivity improvement is the introduction of IoT.
Since I am often outside of the factory,
I can only check the production results at the end of the day… the reality is,
I cannot do anything for the production line even though the quantity is insufficient...
Now, I can see the actual production situation from anywhere,
which allows me to point out the problem in real time.
Head of the Factory
Currently, the only way to measure cycle time is by hand,
so it lacks accuracy and it is difficult to measure.
Since it measures the every-day operation time,
the accuracy of production plannig increases.
Identifying the causer takes time.
I need to go office to look for instruction manual…
It allows me to recognize the machine error from anywhere.
This enables us to prepare what will be needed to repair beforehand.
This makes our job efficient and reduces the time.
Benefits of Brother's IoT
IoT – from even
a single machine.
Does it require a large initial investment?
Brother's IoT system can be introduced for 1/5 of the market price.
Even with the minimum investment, connecting to the initial process of the production line provides you with an input quantity. The difference between the input quantity and the output quantity will be the key to optimizing the production process. On the other hand, by connecting to the final process of production line, you get hourly, daily, and monthly production and cumulative output, which enables you to visualize production progress.
