Surely when you follow the article here, you are wondering how Factory Smart Forms & Checklists (FASF) has implemented digital transformation in production, right? Let’s find out now.

 Digital conversion with FASF

 Pre-production stage

 Prepare warehouse: location, size, and storage capacity will be checked and recorded in documents, then input data into Excel file.

 Input of production materials: volume, weight, volume … input materials are stored in documents and then entered into Excel.

 Inspection of production machinery: comparing documents between the previous period and the next period, difficulties in grasping the technical parameters of the machines as well as the maintenance time.

 Prepare warehouse: all information related to the warehouse has been stored in FASF software. You just need to open the software and compare the parameters. If anything changes, please proceed to update more.

 Input of production materials: with just one simple operation all necessary information is in FASF. Checking and controlling is easier than ever.

 Check production machines: You just need to use a smart electronic device to scan the QR code that has been integrated on the production machinery. The necessary information will appear immediately

 Stage in production

 Downtime problem: Unexpected downtime, it takes a while for repair staff as well as management levels to grasp the information.

 Productivity of production machinery: if you want to know if a machine is producing according to its capacity, you need to find out the technical parameters of the machine as well as the production capacity in the previous runs.

 Downtime problem: when downtime occurs, repairmen and operators immediately receive information through the Factory Smart Forms & Checklists system (specifically here is email). In the meantime, technicians and operators can rely on the error library built into FAS.

 Productivity of production machines: just like the process of checking production machines, you just need to scan the QR code and all the necessary information will appear.

 Post-production stage

 Goods out of stock: quantity, information is recorded on forms, paper forms then pushed up and stored on Excel file.

 Goods left over, lost: the process of checking and counting takes place manually. Sometimes this is not effective, the amount of residual goods is unknown and the amount of lost products is not captured.

 Goods out of stock: right from the production stage, the results of the production process are stored on the FASF. After the goods are released from the warehouse, the latest parameters will also be quickly updated to the system.

 Goods left over, lost: as mentioned above, the goods parameters are stored in parallel with each stage. You just need to check to know how much goods are in stock and whether there is a loss or not.

You can imagine the process of FASF operating the factory digitization as follows

  • The first customer to use the Factory Smart Forms & Checklists solution of NOIS is Vinamilk (a brand of Vietnam Dairy Products Joint Stock Company). Later realized the great potential of FASF in factory digitization, digital transformation in many different fields, NOIS has researched and developed FASF based on the unique characteristics of each industry.
  • Factory digitizationIn pre-production preparation

– Data entry: Quantity, volume, volume… of materials used in production will be entered and stored securely into the FASF system. At the same time, the warehouse information containing raw materials and finished products is also stored with full information from address to capacity.

– Inspection and maintenance of production machinery: On each production machine, there will be a QR Code. Maintenance staff only need to use an iPad

with built-in Factory Smart Forms & Checklists software to scan the code. At this time, the information of the machine will appear from parameters, machine data, operating time …

● Factory digitization in production: During production, sometimes there will be Downtime problem. At this time, FASF will use the Email system to inform necessary objects such as field operators, maintenance staff, and managers at all levels. While waiting for technical staff to come to repair, you can also use the previously updated error library system on FASF based on the Downtime errors that have occurred.

● Post-production factory digitization: It is very easy to lose product or not accurately control excess product. Using Factory Smart Forms & Checklists your business will not encounter such situations anymore. Besides, checking how many orders have been shipped or how many products have left the warehouse will take place quickly and accurately.
