Factory Cockpit – Integrating human and machine intelligence
Most manufacturers lack accurate real-time information about their manufacturing status and performance. Information is often siloed into multiple, separate systems which are not integrated with each other and with shop floor device data. At the same time manufacturing environment is getting more complex and volatile. The future success is built upon the sustained relationship between manufacturers and customers. And that, can only be achieved with information transparency, agile, continuous development and seamless collaboration.
solves the challenge by bringing together data from your shopfloor devices and IT systems, providing real-time situational awareness. It visualizes and analyzes the data, allowing you to make well-informed decisions, to lead and continuously develop your manufacturing. Factory Cockpit enhances flexibility and efficiency through transparency, improves employee satisfaction, and helps you become the most valuable partner for your customers.
Work satisfaction and productivity are both subject to letting people know exactly what should be happening, when, and why. Every bit of change and improvement costs less energy when decisions are based on transparent facts and a systemic, mutually shared overview.
Factory Cockpit enables continuous improvement in your manufacturing, helps implement productivity gains, and solve efficiency bottlenecks. This leads to higher throughput, shorter lead times, lower stock levels, less machine downtime, and ultimately more flexible manufacturing.
Situational awareness enables timely information sharing, adjustments, and issue management across the value chain. Transparency helps you, your customers, and partners meet the growing demand for agility and resilience in the turbulent world.
Ultimately, we are after improving your business performance.
By enabling people to do the right things at the right time and eliminating waste of time and materials.
By improving the throughput, fully utilizing the capacity of existing equipment, and better cooperation with partners.
By shortening lead times and reducing inventory levels.
We integrate existing production IT systems and shop floor resources to create a digital twin of your manufacturing process. The solution can be adopted in steps to meet your manufacturing requirements and the growing business demands. As part of Fastems, we understand the realities of part manufacturing and how to push the boundaries for the next step of efficiency.
Utilizing your data today positions you perfectly for tapping into machine learning technologies in the coming years. As Factory Cockpit and technologies evolve, you will have a platform implementing improvements based on process simulations and artificial intelligence. Not far off in the future, this will enable you making AI-assisted decisions.
As a solution that assists decisions and ways of working, Factory Cockpit intuitively nurtures a culture of constant improvement and collaboration. While changes are never easy, transparency and holistic view of your manufacturing helps facilitating decisions and driving change.
