Shopfloor Managment System
Pentamaster proudly introduces our latest Shopfloor Management Solution (SMS) – SMS 2008. SMS 2008 is the next generation MES from Pentamaster Corporation Berhad. The SMS provides a simple to understand, real time graphical view of work requirements set against the actual working capacity of the machine tools. SMS has been developed based on years of manufacturing industries experience throughout the region to help manufacturers manage, control and document the manufacturing process in real-time. Ultimately, SMS helps manuafcturers to maximize their profits by:
- Production status available at real-time
- More accurate forecast of delivery date
- Monitor and record every process step
- Ensure no skipped process
- Automate and control process routing
- Easy monitor for machine activities
- 100% data capture will enable easy monitoring of overall performance (KPI)
- Provide timely reports for management decision making
- Reduce time consumption to retrieve information
- Production Data and Genealogy Tracking
- Paper usage reduction
- Easy Integration to other system (ERP, WMS and etc) for managerial decision making
Features of SMS
- High Degree of Customization
SMS has been designed from the ‘ground-up’ to provide a fully customizable and feature-rich MES for customers.
- More Than 50 Built-in Transactions
SMS ships with more than 50 built-in transactions for fast deployment, with UNLIMITED user-defined transaction to cater customer’s requirements.
- Complete Process Genealogy
Lot genealogy and production history are completely stored in database, with snapshot of the lot status whenever a transaction happened. Customers are ensured their tracing capability is 100%. History of changes for all the objects in SMS system is enabled along with the versioning control feature.
- ‘Save’ & ‘Safe’ Control
SMS provides an option to encrypt sensitive & critical information (i.e. raw material names, product recipes, drawings) to ensure total privacy. Industries involved in recipes (i.e. Chemical industry, Food & Beverage Industry) or designs (i.e. Automotive designs, Electronics design) may consider this option as the vault for their recipes.
- Terminology Flexibility
SMS has flexibility to allow users to change to brand new language in all.
- Extended Applications
SMS provides automatic and manual ways of Engineering Data Collection (EDC). Real-time measurement collected can be exported to any Statistical Process Control (SPC) to monitor the process variation.
- Extended Integration
SMS can integrate with both hardware and software system with ease. Being the ‘one-stop’ manufacturing solution provider with vast experience in automation, we have made the integration with Protocol (i.e. fieldbus) and PLCs an easy task. Our data collection extends beyond normal data entry, equipped with the integration of Barcode, RFID and Vision technology.
- Drag ‘n’ Drop Process Design
SMS uniquely provide a Drag ‘n’ Drop architecture for process design, thus, making the configuration simple and easy. This extensive set of configuration tools is also embedded with versioning control where previous designs are still kept in the system to cope with unforeseen rollback necessary. This enables new modifications and enhancements to be implemented at ease. Your investment is protected over time, as your implementation is quickly adapted to your changing business process.
- Cutting Edge Technology
SMS is always sensitive about the technology trends. We are using Microsoft.NET Framework for SMS libraries, to enable a scalable system configuration. With Microsoft.NET technology, we even extend our stand in web-based client. Hence, customers today are always assured that the technology will not be obsolete tomorrow.
The next Cost-Reduction frontier for increasing the profitability of any company competing in today’s global market is by Optimizing Service & Maintenance Operations. The CMMS does analysis and optimization concepts for managing, monitoring and controlling the complex enterprise assets and service processes throughout the manufacturing floor. Ultimately, CMMS helps manuafcturers to maximize their profits by:
- Improve Machine Uptime
With CMMS, prompt and proper maintenance could be conducted. Thus, the unplanned downtime of machines could be reduced, which translates to better machine uptime with CMMS.
- Maintenance Cost Tracking
CMMS tracks the cost of every maintenance activity performed, including spare parts cost, labor cost and other miscellaneous costs.
- Enhance Product Quality
CMMS ensures every machine is well maintained and thus helps to eliminate machine inconsistency, which minimizes machine-to-machine variations and ultimately improves total product quality and reliability.
- Maintenance Knowledgebase
CMMS stores every activity including past problems and solutions discovered.
- Prolong Machine Life Span
A well-maintained machine will last longer than poorly maintained machines. With CMMS, every machine is ensured to have proper maintenance.
- Improve Customer Satisfactions
When machine variation is minimized, product quality could be improved, thus directly enhances customer satisfactions
Features of CMMS
- Maintenance Types
- Time-Driven Maintenance (triggered by time).
- Meter-Driven Maintenance (triggered by usage)
- Email Notification
- Pre-Maintenance Notification
- Overdue Notification
- Meter Reading Notification
- Maintenance Cost Break Down
- Labor cost tracking (translated from the time spent by maintenance personnel)
- Material cost tracking (involves spare parts cost and other consumable items e.g. grease)
- Other cost tracking (includes the loss due to downtime and other unforeseen cost)
- Maintenance Procedure Versioning
CMMS allows maintenance SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) to be updated as new version without deleting the previous version. It helps to keep track of the changes made to the maintenance procedures.
- Remote Access
CMMS is built entirely based on web technology, which means no installation is required and every authorized personnel could access to CMMS from everywhere in the world and anytime.
- Multiple Site Support
CMMS has the capability to cater for multi-site environment. Since it is designed with modular architecture, there is always an option to start from single plant and add new plants at later stage.
