|Visualizing Factory solute Production Problem OPTIMIZATION
Technova's "Ad Libitum" shows the precise Production Schedule
which is planed based on each production condition of product immediately
after in putting the production order. "The visualizing factory"
by Gant Chart and Histogram and so on, helps to get the situation in perspective
plainly the factory condition and problems. Productivity will be improved
easily by changing production order (sequence), selection production resources
by watching the display of "ad libitum". Good labor efficient
Schedule is made by the production order, which is determined, adjusting
the relation of worker supply (purple), whole job volume (pink) and line
job volume (green). When you change the production order of products, you
can recognize changing time length of the make span (the time length from
start to finish of production). Therefore you can make a shorter production
schedule of make span easily controlling a necessity of labor volume. It
makes an obvious improvement of the productivity of factory. During making
production schedule, watching not only whole factory screen but also each
production line makes better efficient production. Ad libitum realize the
visualizing factory also visualizing job and labor.
Equalization of the worker number
A necessary worker number changes during production in the multiple kind productions. In the case of the multiple lines the worker total number fluctuates more largely. As the “Ad libitum” overlays to detailed histogram the change of work quantity and the supply labor quantity in the monitor, a planner is able to judge the excess and deficiency of a labor at a glance. As the production order can be changed easily, a workload is adjusted by the combination of work and the labor quantity and work quantity can be matched. This factory is composed of 3 lines of a divider, HM, and AD and a vertical axis is time and a horizontal axis is a worker number. The pink part is the change of the job quantity for each after one minute based on production command. The supply labor quantity of the blue part is shown with the number of persons. The place where job quantity and regular worker overlapped is changing in gray color. The worker number of the green part of the right histogram becomes needed every time at the time of the production of a left Gantt chart, if the divider line is taken as an example. All the necessary worker numbers that combined A, B, C line are shown with a pink part. Accordingly a blue part increases when labor force is supplied excessively. If it adjusts between lines not to an independent line like this, it can decrease the labor force of the whole factory.

|MES(Manufacturing Execution System):
Ad Libitum has
been developed in mainly food industry. Compare with electric goods, car and
chemical plants, majority of food factory has more complicate and more obscure
condition of production factors which experience and scent exist remain still
now. There few scheduler (production plan software) works well in a complicate
food factory especially bakery. Many backbone system such as ERP (Enterprise
Resource Planning) and MRP (Material Requirements Planning) state that this
system has a production management function, however these system has
ingredients control function and products stock control function at most. If
they have a schedule function, almost of their scheduler are not enough to use
in a complicated food factory.
MES inform business
data from business system like ERP to production site, and receive production
data from production site. MES become more and more important as not only for
factory (production site) but also information system between management and
factory. So far isolated data in production site are scattered in even same
factory, there is no system, which connect smoothly between business system and
