MANUFACTURING TRACEABILITY & QUALITY MANAGEMENT

The rise of Industry 4.0 has heightened expectations for traceability in manufacturing.
Manufacturers are expected to document every step in a process chain to meet regulatory requirements and provide documented evidence that their products were manufactured to exact specification.

Sorion’s traceability systems help manufacturers improve product quality by avoiding errors during the manufacturing process.

GOALS OF A TRACEABILITY PROGRAM

Manufacturers utilise traceability to make improvements in the following areas:

Comply with quality and regulatory standards

Manage product quality and reduce the number of rejects and recalls

Improve customer satisfaction and your profit margin

System components

ERROR PROOFING

Use our Sextans end of line test and process control system to improve quality by ensuring that the appropriate processes are performed in the correct sequence on the right parts.

Using Sextans you can detect errors as they occur in production, before they become bigger issues down the line.


PROCESS DATA COLLECTION & PART HISTORY

Store and manage data from any process and test station in the Orion web based data management and analytics application.

The type of information recorded will vary, but some of the more commonly collected information includes: site/track, station, time & date, shift, build no, part serial no, tooling data, test system, measured values, visual inspection.

Orion provides a flexible set of analysis tools from quick simple visual charts to more complex analysis.


OEE AND AVAILABILITY MONITORING

With Orion EMA (Equipment Monitoring and Availability) you have the right tool to integrate centralised equipment monitoring, availability and event tracking. The application allows andon display and web based reporting of production line performance, including:

  • Current Status
  • Equipment Availability & OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness)
  • Downtime Cause Analysis
