Accelerate your Continuous Improvement initiatives with comprehensive real-time manufacturing performance data and insight.
Are you looking to accelerate your continuous improvement
initiatives like Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma Manufacturing and
Total Productive Maintenance? Epicor, formerly Solarsoft, drives
your continuous improvement program with comprehensive real-time
manufacturing performance data and insight - key aspects of any
OEE and Continuous Improvement in Manufacturing
Continuous improvement methods such as Lean, Six Sigma and TPM,
along with metrics like Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), are
used to meet increasing demands on manufacturing operations.
A key aspect of any continuous improvement program is
comprehensive capture and analysis of actionable, accurate
manufacturing performance data.
Do you struggle with the deficiencies and controversies of
manual data collection (stopwatches and clipboards) or high-risk,
high-waste and high expense IT projects?
World-class manufacturers have found that Epicor MEI solutions
EMI and Mattec MES) are the
most effective way to quickly eliminate waste and identify
performance opportunities, improve production efficiency, measure
improvement and sustain improvement gains.
Lean Manufacturing is an
approach to systematically eliminate waste. The goal is to
incorporate less human effort, less inventory, and less space to
become highly responsive to customer demand, all while producing
top-quality products in the most efficient and economical manner.
At the most basic level within a manufacturing environment Lean
involves an "attack" on rework, inventory, unreliable equipment,
poor quality, and unnecessary activity and labor.
Lean incorporates a number of tools and techniques that can be
significantly enhanced by Epicor:
- Total Productive Maintenance
- Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED)/Quick Changeover
- Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
Kaizen is an ongoing improvement process involving everyone,
from executive managers to plant crews. A key aspect of Kaizen is
to find and exploit new performance opportunities. In a
manufacturing environment, performance opportunities are identified
by examining the six major loss categories:
- Setup and adjustments
- Idling and minor stops
- Reduced speed
- Defects and rework
Epicor MEI solutions together with the Epicor IMPACT methodology enhance your Kaizen
Event (or Blitz) with the data and insight needed to quickly spot
opportunities, take action, measure, and sustain gains.
