Industrial Equipment & Machinery

LYNQ is reinventing manufacturing execution system (MES) software for industrial equipment and machinery manufacturers running job shop, batch production or production lines.

The UK’s industrial equipment and machinery sector is a significant contributor to the entire manufacturing industry.

Contrary to popular belief, the UK’s manufacturing sector is still strong – employing more than 2.5 million people and accounting for around £150 billion of national economic output. The industry’s growth, however, relies heavily on the development and building of machinery.

This is a complex field, and machine manufacturers must overcome a unique set of challenges as they search for operational efficiency. Together, these challenges are enough to hinder planning and scheduling efforts, and ultimately restrict productivity.

Increasing global competition

The UK industry faces increasing competition from other parts of the world, where labour and materials can be considerably cheaper.

Constant innovation

Processes and relevant technologies are evolving rapidly as manufacturers strive for faster, smarter production. Machine-makers must ensure they keep up with all advances in order to remain relevant to their audiences.

Lengthy development process

The journey from initial design to completion is lengthy when it comes to machine production – numerous parts have to be developed and sourced, with many different companies involved.

Maintenance requirements

Machine building is an intensive process, and companies must consistently maintain the condition of their own machines to ensure quality levels remain high.

Achieving delivery, quality and financial goals relies on the effectiveness of your resources. Getting the most from your employees and machines goes beyond scheduling. It requires intelligent insight and complete visibility of where time is being lost, using technology that can automate data collection and optimise workflow, to seamlessly connect planning and production activities.

LYNQ is built to complement the best-of-breed ERP systems your company already relies on, and can improve operations in a number of ways.

  • Manage and avoid bottlenecks using the graphical planning board to identify and rectify issues before they impact production.
  • Improve client satisfaction by providing your service team with complete visibility of the shop floor – making it possible to determine the status of each job instantly.
  • Use real-time data from the shop floor to track employee and machine performance, and identify opportunities for improvement.
  • Track OEE, availability, loading, quality and six loss using powerful, data-fuelled dashboards.

LYNQ is already being used to maximise efficiency, productivity and profitability in the industrial equipment and machinery industry.
