With SCHEMA you can generate in seconds the best production schedule for your plant to fulfill and deliver your orders on time.
You can follow up on the schedule with what is happening on the production floor and make the necessary changes on time. You can easily analyze where you can improve your plant and reach an efficiency level of excellence!
Click on the following buttons to learn more about how SCHEMA works.
If you have more questions, you can click on the chat bubble below the right side and a person from our team will support you with more information or visit our Help Center.
How to move within SCHEMA
The menu is on the left side, click on any icon to expand it. Each section may have different subsections.
Click outside the menu to remove the expansion.
From the upper right side of the screen, click on the profile picture to configure your company data, register new users and access permissions for your device.
This panel summarizes your main indicators of efficiency, performance and quality.
Monitor your data in more detail by clicking on them and they will direct you to the report in question, or you can also click on the section Performance n the menu where you can choose which report you want to see.
Here we show you a Gantt visualization of the optimal schedule generated.
Each row represents a machine, the molds are visualized with gray diagonal stripes and the parts are the batches that come after a mold, they can contain the color you selected in Work in Process. You can make modifications to the schedule:
Move the order of production batches of parts using drag and drop.
Increase and decrease production batches with double click on a batch.
Increase and reduce the installation time of a mold with double click on a mold.
Add a downtime with double click on a mold. Select the category, the reason for downtime and the time. To add your list of downtimes, go to the section Downtimes and create it.
Add notes on each machine to indicate a priority to the production floor.
Add a new production batch with double click on a mold.
Add a new mold and its production in a machine, with a click on the name of a machine.
You can check the Timetables to see more in detail what each shift should do.
You can also see the Production Orders for each batch production with the specific requirements of raw materials.
The best way to start your journey is with just a sample database.
The first step to start your journey in SCHEMA is add at least one of the following to your database: 1 Work-in-Process, 1 Finished Product, 1 Mold, and 1 Machine. These items should be related to each one another to be able to say that 1 Production Route is complete.
Once you have at least 1 complete Product Route, you can add a Customer Order and create your first production schedule.
With an ongoing schedule, you can capture real production and automatically begin to generate the Key Performance Indicators of your plant.
First, go to Raw Materials and click on the button located on the upper right side to follow my filling instructions.
Here you can enter the records of the production of your machines. The capture is divided by machine, click on the name of one to start. Clicking on the button will display a menu with the following options:
'Remove this Action':
The data must be captured in minutes. Do not forget to click on the button located on each machine
Would you like to know, measure and compare the performance of your production team to identify areas of opportunity?
Knowing the Availability, Performance and Quality indicators of your production at all times is a great opportunity to make decisions that allow you to improve every day. SCHEMA, always looking to help you improve and optimize your processes, has added an additional efficiency indicator that is part of the Synthetic Rate of Return (SRR).
A performance indicator developed by Seiichi Nakajima in the sixties (60') to measure the utilization rate of an industrial facility. In this instance, your production floor.
The TRS measures the proportion of available time actually used. It is calculated as TRS = Usable Time / Scheduled Time where Usable Time is equal to the quotient of Effective Production and Standard Hourly Production.
Don't worry! everything is under control, since this certification is very similar to one you already know, the OEE, what changes is the breakdown of its formula since it gives a different perspective of the efficiency of operations.
This calculation, as simple as it may seem, gives you the efficiency in terms of hours, because the Uptime indicates the number of effective hours that the Machine worked, that is, the hours in which its performance was one hundred percent (100%) of Quality and one hundred percent (100%) of Performance.
The OEE and TRS indicators are used to identify areas for improvement, the difference between them is relative and is given in practice, since the OEE allows you to know the factors that consume the installed capacity, while the TRS indicates the proportion of available time effectively used.
To access this efficiency indicator, all you have to do is enter the SCHEMA Indicators Report, where you can even filter the information by Part, Machine, Mold, Shift and more, with just one click
