|Complete assembly lline progress management by making Takt time visible!
- Workers along the assembly line were not aware that they were completing tasks at different rates, causing the line to progress at various speeds.
- Now each worker along the line can know how much time is left to minimize delays and allow the line to flow more consistently.
■ Display remaining work time with the number of tiers
|Control management with visualization of analog equipment information and sensor feedback!
- Only circumstances of the equipment’s abnormal condition were displayed, but neither a threshold point nor elapsed time from an abnormal condition was understood.
- The threshold point is displayed in real time and can be seen from a distance. By including an elapsed time display, equipment priority can be grasped and prompt action can be made before abnormalities arise.
■ Threshold response turns to a memory display
|Replenish cutting fluid in a timely manner by "seeing" how much is left
- When checking the capacity of the cutting-fluid tank, visual confirmation is made for the in-ground tank by installing floatation devices, but the time and effort to check has a delay.
- The amount of cutting fluid is made visible in real time and can be seen from a distance, which allows multiple machines to be monitored at a glance and appropriate responses can be made.
■ Remaining tank level indication
|Various machines can be monitored more precisely for abnormal conditions!
- Abnormalities for equipment was displayed and could be seen from a distance but its severity could not be determined unless extra time was taken to approach the machine.
- Now equipment can be checked for abnormalities at a glance from a distance, and when all tiers light up, prompt attention can be given.
■ All tiers light-up for abnormal conditions
