ASAP-CRS Manufacturing Execution System
A Manufacturing Execution System (MES) can cut your costs between 10% and 45% according to MESA International. These savings are achieved by better coordination, reduced shift end paperwork, reduced data entry time and reduced lead time among other improvements. MES systems improve information flow from the shop floor to many other systems, and improve coordination and information flow from the business systems to the shop floor.
ASAP-CRS is one of these new generation MES systems that gives you a better bottom line through improved communications and better control.
ASAP-CRS is a Coordinating Scheduler and data collection system which uses a distributed database for high reliability and fault tolerance. This design was chosen for reliable performance in harsh industrial environments. The core of the system is a technology that allows us to link our system to others, and make sure that each department gets the information they need to run smoothly - and independently, if need be. By providing a production scheduling system that is tightly integrated with automated shop floor data collection, ASAP-CRS provides timely production information to management so they can make informed decisions about how to use their capacity. Further, ASAP-CRS can be integrated with most financial systems, to reduce data entry, and improve the consistency of information through all departments.
ASAP-CRS gives manufacturers control of their plants by providing a MES which includes a Finite Capacity Scheduler with a real-time feedback loop by way of the integrated shop floor data collection system. The ASAP-CRS Scheduler coordinates the information flow between the production floor and the sales, management, logistics and accounting departments. Manufacturers save time by automatically collecting, compiling and presenting data through the ASAP-CRS system - instead of manual compilation. Thus freeing more time for identifying and solving problems, and freeing more time for better planning the best use of production facilities.
ASAP-CRS supports many manufacturing philosophies including Holonic Manufacturing, Continuous Flow, Synchronous Manufacturing, and Job Shop among others. We also support hybrid systems. For example: some of the orders flowing through your system may be a customer order, whereas other orders may be consolidated orders identified only by the part number, or a single work order number. In a "Job Shop" system, the customer order can be identified at each different manufacturing stage; with consolidated orders it is only possible to identify the product being manufactured. In this latter style of manufacturing, the daily production is usually entered into inventory, and is "back-flushed" to fill current orders. Whether you use a particular style of manufacturing, or use different styles to suit the particular department, the ASAP-CRS system will work for you.
In short - you get control of your manufacturing operations.
