SFXPRESS- Manufacturing Execution System (MES)

Business Challenges

  • Manual Production count Reporting

    In an environment where machines are not connected to the ERP system, operators rely on paper job cards, which have old information or incorrect information. It is time consuming to update the Machine/Line PPM information. It requires printed copies which tend to waste paper if the information printed is wrong.
  • Complex Procedure for Downtime Analysis

    Machine downtime analysis is critical for Production planning. It helps take necessary actions to rectify the root cause and making sure that machines can run at their best capacity.
  • Manual Data Entry into ERP

    All Job cards are being entered Manually into ERP for reporting to Management. It is time consuming and cannot be managed real time. Any Information required to make business decisions is based on manual entries, which is error prone.
