RS Production
Screens

RS Production Screens is a digital tool for creating participation and ownership by empowering employees in different roles to work fact-based and quickly make the right decisions based on common understanding of current status and problems.

Without writing a single line of software code, you create the content of the television screens that drive the right behaviors based on your strategy and current challenges.

EVENT DRIVEN FORMS AND CHECKLISTS

Make sure the correct instructions are displayed to the right people at the right time. It can be about five why, instructions for change over, first bit controls, operator maintenance, or showing relevant drawings.

Control the display of instructions, checklists and forms based on current orders, current part, workstations, etc.

Follow up and track work done on time.

ANDON AND ALARM ESCALATION

Reduce disruption time using a communication channel that reaches the right person at the right time.

When production staff can easily and quickly call for support resources, you will solve leaks faster and reduce the extent of disturbances caused by quality errors, machine problems and material problems. It provides higher productivity and efficiency.

VISUAL PLANNING

RS Production PK209 Visual Planning is a program extension that creates faster responses when you do not follow the plan. It gives you time to prioritize and reduce the risk that your disturbances reaches your customer.

The digital planning view increases understanding of when orders are expected to be complete and what is expected of individual teams / machines.
