Dynamics 365 Software for Advanced Manufacturing
June 19 @ 1:30 to 3:30 pm | Free
Challenge: How can the Canadian Manufacturing sector compete in the global
Solution: Develop smart manufacturing techniques using 2018 Software Technology
from Microsoft (Advanced Manufacturing) – Microsoft Dynamics 365.
A typical manufacturer in Ontario can improve upon his design and introduce
new materials that are lighter, stronger and or cheaper. They can purchase
robots or high-efficiency machines to replace traditional machinery or workforce,
but consequently, many manufacturers struggle or overlook knowledge-based
improvements using modern ERP tools.
In this seminar at Delta Hotel, we will do a deep dive into the following four areas
of process improvement;
Better Scheduling and shop floor control
The best way to maximise revenue and profitability is to implement electronic
scheduling. The latest Microsoft Dynamics 365 scheduling app allows supervisors
to drag and drop work orders from work centre to work centre. Call up electronic
work instructions and drawings and review the utilisation and capacity of a phone
or tablet. Hence, this app integrates directly into the ERP’s graphical scheduling
system which helps in managing the bigger picture, milestones, customer
commitments and also purchasing.
Shop Floor Data Collection and Integration
Vox ISM offers many methods of shop floor data collection. It is the lifeblood
of your manufacturing system. Also, our product offerings include ‘smart-devices’
that can communicate or control of machines on the shop floor, tablets that collect
quality and product information or simple touchscreen reporting; and therefore w
e have a solution that fits your budget, industry and need.
Analysis of Cost
Many shops collect information from the shop floor, but few genuinely spend the
time to analyse the results. We will show you how the best-run shops examine
data and also, how you can galvanise the improvement of a process or product using
our manufacturing reporting suite.
Reviewing the full supply chain, to increase inventory turns, better purchasing
practices, also on time supplier and subcontractor deliveries.
