Complete shop-floor control and material management solution

25 July 2007 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Valor Computerized Systems has announced the release of vManage, the latest addition to its manufacturing execution system (MES) product suite. vManage offers an unprecedented level of monitoring and control of work and materials at the shop floor as well as the factory management level.

vManage is built upon the well known, field proven, TraceExpert solution, but with far-reaching new features that extend into the manual assembly and box-build stages. With complete realtime visibility of every aspect of the manufacturing operation, vManage acts as the keystone of an electronics manufacturer's lean manufacturing strategy, increasing inventory turns and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), enabling full traceability of materials and manufacturing processes, and identifying bottlenecks as they happen.

Using a centralised database for data collection, vManage provides operators and managers with vital information regarding the manufacturing operation. A built-in alert system as well as an automated shut-down mechanism prevents faulty production, thus reducing manufacturing time and costs by ensuring that production and assembly are flawless right from the start.

vManage can be provided on a unique mobile platform. All alerts and monitored information are available on portable pocket terminals. The unique technology in vManage provides full tracing capabilities, right down to the most detailed level as required by OEMs in the most demanding automotive, medical and aircraft industries.

Valor claims that vManage is the first industry solution that provides traceability to manual assembly stations, automatic assembly stations (SMT) and final box build assembly, all collected by one software solution.
