Production Preparation System

TECHNOLOGICAL SHEETS

This module allows to create and manage Technological Sheets specifying technology of each product. Using Technological Sheets is crucial for ensuring consistency of any continued product. It also allows to automatically recalculate product pricelist associated with the Technological Sheet.
Advantages:

• Definition of technological routes for the purpose of optimized product manufacturing technology;
• Uniformed technological information for each product;
• Uniformed product identification, from commercial division, through the design studio and technology, up to production and warehouse;
• Access to product revision history, including its development and manufacturing.

TECHNOLOGICAL TEMPLATES

This module allows to create technological templates for any type of product. Thus, it is possible to automate calculation and ensure compatibility of calculation estimates with technological capabilities. It also allows to define technological routes ensuring optimal execution of production orders.
Advantages:

• Shorter time needed for calculation preparation;
• Lower costs of possible technological errors in calculations and production orders;
• Allows a person not familiar with technology to use the system safely (useful for new employees);
• Uniformed technological description of any order, from calculation to product and order.

PRODUCTION ORDERS

This module automates generation of production orders based on previously prepared calculations (product sheets). Thus, it is ensured that any open production order is correct and compliant with production standards, technologies and processes used by the company.
Advantages:

• Shorter time needed for preparation of production order;
• Automated preparation of production orders;
• Generating production orders quickly and according to calculation;
• Lower error risk in production orders;
• Possible combination of different products in print sheets.

MACHINE MANAGEMENT

This module allows to define technological parameters describing each machine used by the company. It is also possible to define performance standards with an option to set up such standards according to a number of technological parameters. This module also provides an option to define coverage rates for each machine.
Advantages:

• Better machinery usage due to precise information regarding machine performance;
• Appropriate categorization of performance data for each machine;
• Combined machine standards database available for calculation and planning;
• Easy start-up of any new machine by copying parameter configuration from another machine and appropriate adjustment of those parameters.

TOOLS MANAGEMENT

This module allows to manage tools necessary for production and to monitor their availability and usefulness level. It manages the entire life cycle of any tool, from a purchase order, through regeneration, to complete wear and another purchase order. Availability and condition of such tools as rollers, anilox rolls, printing forms and die cutters are also visible in other modules such as Production Plan or Production Orders.
Advantages:

• Tool status and availability tracking;
• Tool cost optimisation;
• Shorter downtime related to any need to wait for a new tool;
• Option to assign usage, sheet and packing parameters to a die cutter boards;
• Search engine allowing to find -die cutting tools with same shapes;
• Complete tool usage history;
• Tools are easily found.

PRICELIST MANAGEMENT

This module allows to add new items and edit existing items in the pricelist, related to materials, transport etc. It also allows for mass price change for a number of items as well as for importing new pricelist items from external files.
Advantages:

• Minimized risk related to raw material price changes;
• Centralized control of raw material prices used for calculations;
• Price management in any currency;
• Possibility of making a mass price change;
• Possibility of creating price lists applicable for different periods of time.

MATERIAL DEMAND

This module allows to reserve materials and tools required for completion of any accepted production order. It enables the user to assign any material in stock as well as to replenish its level to a value necessary for efficient completion of production orders.
Advantages:

• Lower material purchase and supply costs through combination of purchase orders for similar materials needed for a number of production orders;
• Lower tool purchase and supply costs through combination of purchase orders for similar tools needed for a number of production orders.
• Lower frozen capital in inventory by using materials left after completion of previous orders.

MATERIAL INSPECTION

This module is used for defining laboratory tests, generated automatically for laboratory employees upon acceptance of raw material with defined parameters. This module allows to appropriately record any completed raw material tests. It also allows to develop quality control plans and to define measurements to be completed as a part of a specific control procedure. It automatically creates a list of tests according to material parameters. This module ensures observation of quality standards regarding control of any raw material processed.
Advantages:

• Ensures compliance with procedures applicable for raw material laboratory tests;
• Automated preparation of test documentation;
• Standardized registration of quality control tests;
• Defining tests according to supplier and raw material type.

PRODUCT INSPECTION

This module is used to define laboratory tests for each product group. This module allows to appropriately record any completed product tests. It automatically generates a list of tests for a finished product, according to product type, technological operations used in production and a final customer that is supplied with the product. It also allows to develop quality control plans and to define measurements to be completed as a part of a specific control procedure as well as to register any quality events. Upon completion of any quality test, a quality certificate is automatically generated. The quality control plan is created according to the company’s quality policy and specific requirements of customers.
Advantages:

• Ensured compliance with procedures for product laboratory tests;
• Automated preparation of test documentation;
• Standardized registration of quality control tests;
• Possibility to generate a variety of product quality certificates;
• Defining tests based on customer, product type, technological process.

PRODUCT PROTECTION

The Product Protection module allows to create automatic workflow where appropriate protection methods with specific parameters are added to input works, without intervention of graphic interface or the operator (e.g. through hot folder or by direct communication with a database). This module allows to create templates including sets of already set up protections with predefined parameters.
Advantages:

• Accepting purchase orders online;
• Preliminary verification of submitted works;
• Automatic adjustment of working parameters to the technological requirements of specific product;
• Automated prepress (correction, color transformation, imposition).
