AUTOMIZE to introduce flexible automation
OPTIMIZE to save time and effort
REALIZE to save time and work-flow
What is and why do we need and what is the IZE? Let’s take a look in details.
The IZE Process
Quote and Estimate
Quoting and Estimating is now more efficient with easy upload option supporting a large variety of supported CAD formats or using MetaCAD 2D/3D to design the geometry. Once the Part Geometry is developed it is automatically tooled for all the suitable machines producing machine accurate cycle times which then links to generating quotes that are prepared in seconds whilst supporting different costing scenarios like Multiple Lot Sizes and Multiple Machine quotes.
The batch programming module gives a new flexibility to your manufacturing operations you can automatically program parts with none or very limited user intervention which the system performs automatic geometry validation and material assignment checks along with a range of smart machine parameters will automatically block and highlight any unsuitable parts based on your machine specifications. If any problems are identified during the tooling process the part is highlighted for programmer review giving more focus on utilizing the programming skill set on items that need the skill / decision.
Orders can be created in the system from a multitude of different methods, with ERP/MRP/MES direct feed available (MIETRAK, Epicor, SAP, Oracle, JobBoss…) or MIETRAK PRO direct integration along with being able to upload exported (XLS, CSV, TXT) files the work orders will be populated in seconds without the need to manually enter them and lessening the potential for typo’s, but if you don’t have anything that can export or upload the production orders. Enterprise does have the functionality to enter the orders in manually.
Generating nests can be handled via automated server nesting, interactive nesting or manual nesting with a simple and easy to use interface where you can nest parts for a particular machine, by a priority / due date and automatically hold back any nests that are below a certain packing efficiency. The software also allows you to select sheet size to nest on or will automatically select the best sheet sizes using the detailed nesting algorithms. In addition to the nesting Enterprise has an advanced library search function for older produced nests that will allow you to recall and re-issue them in a few seconds without having to have programming or nesting knowledge.
Shop Floor Direct Feed
The kiosk screen provides a real time direct feed for planning and scheduling nests directly to your machines. The kiosk hosts a wealth of features like real time data capture and setting optimizations all of which are placed into a very visual, easy to understand and real-time display which is designed to show you what to make, how to make it and record the vital production information like quality metrics, setting and productive time without having to constantly go back and forth on the shop floor.
Reporting and Information
Enterprise is an extremely visual system, with multiple types of information easily accessible. Enterprise hosts a reporting module that will allow you to design your own charts, graphs and rolling dashboard based on the information you want to see and if you are on the move then Enterprise also has an app for that!
