PRODUCTION Logistics has released Aspect PL, a real time machine monitoring and production control software package.
It is specifically designed to meet the needs of discrete product manufactures such as injection moulders, die casters, repetition engineers, and blow moulders. Aspect PL runs on a standard computer network and is Web enabled. This allows managers or owners to see how their plant is performing in real time from anywhere in the world. It is licensed on a machine basis so companies can provide access to all relevant employees without additional costs.
For smaller companies, without ERP or MRP, Aspect BA is available. This is the business applications module. It provides features including product costing, stock control, order intake, order picking, and dispatch functions.
The linked documents feature of Aspect PL enables existing quality and process documentation to be integrated with little effort. The system’s reporting features enable performance to be assessed by machine, job, or shift over a nominated time period. Overall equipment effectiveness is used as the standard measure of performance representing fully productive time compared to production time.
Aspect PL is fully portable. It will operate on PDA devices providing a hand-held mobile access anywhere in your factory.
