AiRISTA’s sofia RTLS software platform (UVS) has a powerful workflow engine to facilitate process flows for the most sophisticated models. Based on an intuitive scripting engine, we translate storyboards into a set of cascading rules that collect process information from a sensor agnostic southbound interface and integrate with production systems for closed loop processing.
Lean production techniques have been adopted by more than 75% of machine shops across the country. Gemba Consulting has identified 7 flows of manufacturing:
- the flow of raw materials.
- the flow of work-in-progress.
- the flow of finished goods.
- the flow of operators.
- the flow of machines.
- the flow of information.
- the flow of engineering.
AiRISTA – Experts in Process Flow RTLS Solutions
At the heart of flow is ensuring the right material gets delivered to the right place at the right time. When considering improvements to flow, consider the following:
- map the current process
- identify all waste in the current process
- map the ideal process
- develop an action plan
Most importantly, consider the role of employees. True to the Japanese principles of Kaizen, employees must be involved in the definition of the process improvement, and followed through with buy-in and education.
