What Will I Learn?
DISCOVER: How monthly subscription assembly Manufacturing Execution System (MES) technology is helping manufacturers quickly and cost effectively implement a fully integrated digital manufacturing engineering and shop floor execution system
Learn how to setup low-cost shop floor workstations with simple readily available hardware (touch-screens,Intel Nuc’s, Android Scanners, Rasberry Pis)
Author and deploy auto-configured work instructions with order-specific part and tooling callouts and labor requirements.
Learn how to quickly and easily track Actual vs Expected labor for highly configured assemblies.
Connect Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), quality control/traceability and work instruction initiatives
PLCs, scanners, Pick-to-light systems, DC torque tools
Non-Conformance Report integrated with defect tracking and work instructions
Product genealogy and component serial validations
Learn how to deploy collaboration technologies between the shop floor and planning (Pictures, Videos, CAD models, SMS notifications)
Manage worker task qualifications and station assignments
Capabilities of a Quick and Easy Andon System you can deploy on TV Screens, laptops, tablets and cell phones.
Why Should You Attend?
The Iowa Manufacturing 4.0 Technology Investment Grant Program
presents an opportunity for local companies to implement
technologies which reduce costs and increase quality.
Improve traceability of manufacturing data, shop floor workers, and production events
Reduce effort of the engineering and planning teams for managing process sheets and automation initiatives for highly configured assemblies
Build and deploy IIoT capabilities with an instant payback using monthly subscription cloud-based solutions
Reduce launch times for product design changes and process improvements, while enhancing access to documents, pictures, videos and CAD models
Experience quicker and more meaningful and traceable communication between engineering and production
Gain hands-on experience with real systems deployed at world-class Fortune 100 manufacturing firms – recently now cost-effective for SME’s (Small and Medium Enterprises)
Enhance productivity communications with simple and effective web-based Andon systems.
