Youtilize, from FlexLink Systems , is a Manufacturing Execution Software (MES) that manages all resources available in the production such as the operators, machines, parts as well as data and information. It enables an optimal utilisation of all resources available in the line, thus, enhancing line efficiency.
Youtilize is a single piece production tool that requires an identification of the product unit, which can be made with a carrier like the X85 pallet. Youtilize communicates in real time with the product and the resources available in the line. The product bill of material, order entry and planning can be managed in Youtilize.
Youtilize enables the standardisation and quality assurance of operations. Instructions are available to operators linked to the product in hand. Through Youtilize, the product is directed to the available work station following Kanban principles or with given priority rules.
The system handles all the data needed to run the production. Data stored for statistical reasons provides crucial input to product and production planning.
“We have developed an entirely new product, based on long experience and a strong concept. Youtilize is designed to give standard MES (Manufacturing Execution System) functionality from where you can expand and create possibilities working with, for example, stock management, order scheduling, line balancing, work station optimisation, efficient product configuration as well as quality assurance.” says Göran Nystedt, chief technical officer at FlexLink.
