Manufacturing & Planning
Engineered for Plastics Manufacturers
Easy to use, our manufacturing and planning modules offer a variety of tools such as Material Requirements Planning, Capacity Requirements Planning and Labor Requirements Planning reports that allow the production department to correctly allocate resources to optimize capacity and profitability during the production process. A dynamic drag-and-drop production calendar provides the flexibility and visibility required to schedule work orders and guarantee delivery dates while minimizing setup and changeover times and avoiding production conflicts. Our shop floor data acquisition with an optional integrated PLC module tracks all the production data in real-time through barcode labels that demonstrate production efficiency and true profitability.
Primary Manufacturing and Planning Benefits
Scheduling and planning
Easily schedule production orders, quickly resolve bottlenecks, analyze what-if situations, identify material and primary and secondary equipment conflicts and eliminate the need for manual data input or spreadsheets.
Full production traceability
Follow your production at multiple levels, start to finish, whether you need to track production by Work Order number or lot traceability by raw material.
CyFrame has the answers to: when, what, where, how and who.
Real time production entry and KPIs
CyFrame will populate efficiency reports and track production profitability to give you the tools required to make the best decisions when it matters most.
Forecast and Made for Stock Work Order Generator
Stay one step ahead with CyFrame’s forecast module. Forecast models can be used to determine reorder points and economical order quantities to help ensure optimal inventory control and better customer service. Customer files are loaded and material management files for finished goods are entered into the system to generate the information needed to plan and forecast production. CyFrame also allocates raw materials, machines and labor to meet delivery targets. Companies that operate with an MTS (made to stock) model struggle to produce the correct quantities of the right product at the correct time. CyFrame’s work order generator manages minimum and maximum stock levels, sets the stock target based on customers’ order history and bases future plans on finished goods turnover. Rely on CyFrame and you’ll never face another overstock or finished goods shortage.
Quality, real-time production and shop-floor data capture
The CyFrame shop-floor data capture’s simple, unique interface allows the operator to capture real-time production quantities, production time, rejects, and much more by touching the screen. Print finished goods and WIP barcode labels once the box or skid has been completed. Enter in-line inspection information, verify your quality metrics and manage lot and control numbers for finished goods. Review efficiency numbers onscreen and supervise production speed and cycle times.
Drop & Drop Scheduling, Material and Capacity Requirements Planning
A plastics company must be able to deliver customized products to its customers’ doorsteps anywhere in the world – in the right quantity, at the right time and at a reasonable cost. To accomplish this, CyFrame integrates a dynamic drag-and-drop, easy-to-use production calendar with real-time Material Requirements and Capacity Requirements planning data to create schedules in just a few seconds. This ensures production conflicts are avoided, the right resources and materials are allocated and changes can be easily accommodated if circumstances change.
Drill Down to Production Profitability & Work Order Performance
“Profitability is a measurement of efficiency.” At CyFrame, we demonstrate our commitment to that statement with real-time profitability and efficiency reports based on real-time data pulled from the shop floor. Assess your production profitability in real-time rather than wait until the end of the month or quarter. Drill down to the production details, evaluate the operator, machine and material performance, compare standard versus actual costs, analyze the contribution margin and make the right decision at the right moment.
