PRODUCTION OPTIMISER


Continuous learning plant intelligence application that dynamically adjusts complex production schedules to improve customer delivery and quality

OVERVIEW


HOW IT WORKS

  • SYNTHESISE

    Connect to and synthesise data from your supply chain, demand, manufacturing and human capital systems regardless of format, file size or frequency.

  • MODEL. PLAN. SELECT.

    Experiment with scheduling rules and model the impact of changes to planning criteria in real-time. Generate detailed production plans and scheduling scenarios with statistically calculated confidence levels. Compare historical, current and recommended plans across the supply chain.

  • LEARN AND SHARE

    Learn from actual and predictive outcomes to improve your planning capabilities with confidence. Collaborate across teams on preferred plans and confirm commitment to deliver critical dependencies.

PRODUCTION OPTIMISER IN ACTION

  • CHALLENGE

    Provide fault-free, on-time product delivery at the lowest possible cost while maximising predictability and accuracy.

  • THE SOLUTION

    Utilise an integrated, cloud-based planning and scheduling application to produce an optimised production plan. Leverage machine learning to determine how preferences and constraints can be adjusted to improve confidence levels.

  • THE RESULT

    Reduced production times, improved collaboration and quality.

FEATURES


  • PRODUCTION PLAN GENERATION

    Generate an assembly line production plan for the quarter or next year based on approved annual plans and existing purchase orders.

  • RESOURCE ALLOCATION PLANS

    Generate next week schedules and “actual” assembly line resource allocation plans.

  • PRODUCTION PLAN SIMULATION

    Visualise the impact of “real-world” scenarios on plan execution.

  • RECOMMENDATION ENGINE

    Receive recommended resource allocation and assembly line schedules based on target optimisation criteria.

  • PLAN COMPARISON

    Review side-by-side comparisons of historical, actual and recommended production plans and assembly line schedules.

  • STATUS REPORTING

    Enable assembly line engineers to submit “actual” work status; provide real-time assembly line status dashboard to management.

  • PREDICTIVE INPUTS

    Derive predictive inputs from equipment, machine and test-bed data and to produce more accurate plans and schedules.

  • HISTORICAL VIEWS

    Record and provide access to historical production plans and assembly line schedules for audits and decision-making.

  • REPORT EXPORT

    Export to PDF identified system views for approval, audit and reporting.

  • ANY DEVICE ACCESSIBILITY

    Access plans, schedules and analytics from any mobile or desktop device.

NAUTILIAN™ Platform


The Production Optimiser™ application is built on QiO's secure, cloud-native NAUTILIAN Platform that enables production planners to activate the full potential of machine, IT and human-generated data so they can improve throughput, on-time delivery, product quality and operational efficiency.

  • DATA INTEGRATION

    Data can be synthesised from any source, location, frequency, format and file size.

  • DATA PROCESSING

    QiO utilises the highly elastic and fault-tolerant Lambda data processing architecture to handle massive quantities of batch and streaming data.

  • DATA STORAGE

    Designed for industrial time-based data, QiO’s data storage platform is non-relational, fully-configurable, secure and can be deployed in any industrial environment.

  • ASSET MODELING

    Easily explore and model big data from any data source or file type. Train a model on complete data sets, not samples, and iterate and score in real-time.

  • API EXTENSIBILITY

    QiO provides seamless API connectivity to ERP, asset management, billing, HR and supply chain systems.

  • DATA SECURITY

    Raw data is stored locally and encrypted, providing complete isolation and protection of sensitive data sets.
