Continuous Production Control
Whilst working on a number of projects at AEM Cores, I produced a continuous production control dashboard application for their core production department.
This software help schedule core production in the factory and dramatically supported production planning and labour scheduling – achieving significant production cost savings.
It had two consoles in operation – two computers:
and another ‘kiosk’ console which showed the output of each type of core for each day in 30 days into the future. This meant that when the phone rang to book core production, the production manager could very quickly see ‘slow days’ and schedule the cores to be made then. It combated over time problems – from cost and staff availability points of view.
Here’s a few more screenshots:
