Maximizing Error-proofing in Manufacturing with MES/MOM Controlled Assembly Tools
Maximizing Error-proofing in Manufacturing with MES/MOM Controlled Assembly Tools
This document summarizes the error-proofing solution a leading heavy machinery manufacturer implemented and standardized on in order to greatly reduce product defects due to improperly fastened bolts in transmission systems. Electric assembly tools called nutrunners are used by assembly line workers to fasten bolts to a predetermined torque measurement. Their decision to implement a manufacturing execution system (MES) or manufacturing operations management (MOM) software to both ‘monitor’ and ‘control’ all aspects of the assembly tools and line worker processes yielded unprecedented results by reducing bolted joint failures and Warranty claims by 94%.
Aerospace Manufacturer Enabled by Manufacturing Execution System to Produce Safety Critical Electronics
Aerospace Manufacturer Enabled by Manufacturing Execution System to Produce Safety Critical Electronics
This document summarizes the manufacturing execution system (MES), or manufacturing operations management (MOM) solution implemented by an Aerospace parts manufacturer in order to introduce full-accountability into their assembly processes. The MES/MOM delivered “integrity of process” by providing a control system which managed all aspects of the assembly process; and created a closed-loop of accountability, delivering the desired results every-single-time.A critical aspect to the achievement of their goal was the management of a new assembly line workforce. The true test of the dependability on the MES/MOM system was it empowered operators with little to no experience to build sophisticated electronic components to the highest quality standards. It is also noteworthy that the MES/MOM was able to be integrated and operational in a very short time frame in less than four (4) days.
New Supercar Engine Assembly Perfected by Manufacturing Execution System
New Supercar Engine Assembly Perfected by Manufacturing Execution System
This document summarizes the manufacturing execution system (MES), or manufacturing operations management (MOM) solution implemented by a leading Automotive manufacturer to manage the complex assembly of the engine for their new Supercar. The MES/MOM was integral to ensure each and every single of the nearly two-thousand (2,000) process steps involved to build the engine were completed to the set specifications or tolerances without fail. MES/MOM ensured zero-defects during the assembly of the engines since it monitored and controlled all operations; all tools and devices, and the line workers themselves since the MES/MOM directed them from job start to end. The MES/MOM verified worker credentials, provided work instructions, and confirmed that the materials and tools were properly selected for the exact task at hand. Destined for the Automotive manufacturer’s highest-performance GT sports car (see Figure 1), the twin-turbo charged V6 “EcoBoost” engine is vital to the success of the final product. Given the intricacy of the engine and the number of steps needed to assemble it, and its high tolerances, the MES/MOM proved indispensable.

PINpoint Manufacturing Execution System (MES)
PINpoint Manufacturing Execution System (MES)
PINpoint is a market leading manufacturing execution system (MES) or manufacturing operations management (MOM) software suite designed for large automotive, heavy machinery, electronics, agricultural, power sports and aircraft manufacturers. PINpoint is a web based 'configurable' plant floor management solution that is ready for rapid implementation right out-of-the-box. PINpoint Information Systems has always been an innovator in MES system solutions. MES is not just the primary focus at PINpoint… it’s the only focus. Working with OEM customers like Caterpillar, Navistar, Perkins and most recently Hyundai have confirmed PINpoint’s position as a continuous improvement leader in the manufacturing industry. PINpoint Andon and MES system solutions have also played a major role at Lear, JCI, CalsonicKansei, AWTEC, Magna, Automodular, Arvin Meritor, Benteler and Hamilton Sundstrand on projects that supplied content to World leading manufacturers including Nissan, Boeing, Toyota, GM, Ford and Chrysler. With nearly twenty (20) years of dedicated focus on quality control and manufacturing execution systems, PINpoint has proven to be an innovative leader in the category. This proven track record has eclipsed the boundaries of the United States as PINpoint has successfully implemented projects in Canada, Mexico, China, and India; and with expansion continuing into South America, Europe and Asia. Not unlike continuous improvement in manufacturing, PINpoint continues an ongoing effort to improve and advance its’ software products and services.

PINpoint V5 MES/V5 ANDON
PINpoint V5 MES/V5 ANDON
January 24, 2018 -- PINpoint Information Systems, a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) software developer, announced the release of its Version 5.1.1 (V5) MES and ANDON product’s manufacturing performance dashboards.Their V5 MES and V5 ANDON software now features two separate real-time reporting apps, i.e. a business and manufacturing intelligence dashboard for over-all plant performance monitoring and reporting for plant or engineering managers; and a corresponding plant floor or work station level dashboard screen for assembly line workers and area supervisors to track their progress.Combined, the dashboards afford manufacturers transparency into understanding their unique manufacturing operations. The manufacturer receives insight into how they are really performing right now, including live Over-all Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) data visualization. By simply opening a website on any device, manufacturing stakeholders can see how their assembly line is performing at any given moment right to the second of cycle time. PINpoint V5 software was designed with the goal to make the transition from manual data interpretation, or paper based process manufacturing to paperless manufacturing, simple with a turn-key product. The V5 performance dashboards deliver the manufacturer knowledge, or the truth about how their assembly line is really running.
