By extending and enriching IFS with a configurable, plug-and-play manufacturing operations management (MOM) solution, manufacturers can quickly create a manufacturing execution system (MES) for a fraction of the typical cost to help them achieve their delivery, quality and financial goals. LYNQ has been formed around international standard IEC62264, this framework has been used below to outline the data integration points and information transfer between LYNQ and IFS. We integrate with IFS using web services (API) to ensure the highest standards of performance, data integrity and security.
Resource management deals with the resources required to manufacturer e.g. machines, tools, labour and materials. Work centres, tools, employee and bill of material records are imported from IFS. These records are then extended within LYNQ to support operations management.
Definition management deals with the rules to produce a product e.g. standard product routing. Work orders, materials and operations are imported from IFS. These records are then extended with LYNQ to support operations management.
Detailed scheduling deals with optimising the use of resources to meet production requirements. On completion of production scheduling within LYNQ, production plans are synchronised with IFS. Synchronisation includes updates to work order and operation start and end dates and times.
Dispatching deals with the transfer of production demand to equipment and personnel through the use of job lists. Job lists and schedules are available from within the LYNQ application only.
Execution management deals with controlling the flow of work through the sequence of operations as defined by the routing. Control and release of operations are maintained within the LYNQ application only.
Data collection deals with the gathering, compiling and management of data from production. There is extensive integration with IFS here with automatic synchronisation of production data including labour and machine time; material issues and rejects; operational quantity, scrap, status, start date, end date, work centre; work order start and end date, status, and job receipts.
Tracking deals the summarised real-time status reporting of personnel and equipment being used to produce a product including the current operating conditions (as these may affect the schedule). Tracking data is stored and presented within the LYNQ application only.
Performance analysis deals with the reporting of performance information and includes resource based analysis such as overall labour effectiveness (OLE), overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), total effective equipment performance (TEEP) and product based analysis such as cycle times, procedural efficiencies and production variability. Performance data is stored and presented within the LYNQ application only.
