Rich functionality of the standard
We implement common and universal elements occurring in different types of production and various sectors into the standard K2 information system. We also put emphasis on the speed and size of the processed data. The K2 information system contains all the necessary books and features such as operations, resources, alternative technological procedures, production orders, dispatcher, production planning, dispatch note or taking away finished products.
Creating technological processes
The K2 information system provides the optimization of data storage. The forms contain both clear tables of operations, resources and items, and a tree of operations and semi-finished products. Your own technological procedure can be subsequently modified or supplemented as needed. The advantage is the ability to create all procedures in different variations representing, for example, models, prototypes, modernizations or versions.
Planning and visualizing production
The most important feature is the dispatcher, which is primarily used to create production documents, for planning and visualizing production. Through this feature, the operator has the current and desired information available about not only the coverage of production material and semi-finished products, but also about the overall utilization of production resources. At the same time it can clearly show operations and schedules in time using the Gantt chart.
Comparing the plan to reality
An important aspect of each production is the comparison of the plan with the facts (e.g. quantity, costs, time). We therefore record all production documents needed to manufacture a product lot in a clear tree structure called the Production Orders Book. It has the ability to break down production to the level of individual items of a tree and is a simple, but effective control mechanism.
Calculations illustrated with the Gantt chart are the ones most commonly used to determine the earliest possible completion date of production or the data necessary to start production. Changes in the preparation of production, which are immediately reflected in the chart, can be done directly using links to a specific production dispatch note representing the capacitive requirement in the illustrated plan.
Each product group has its own calculation formula, which is based on valuating individual steps of the technological plan. Valuation is made possible by putting real prices in the calculated formula according to the lot, by using fixed prices for goods or by achieving warehouse averages A specific piece can be calculated by recording all the inputs from the indicated lot, and retroactive documentation used for making a specific product, as well as who took part in producing it, is also possible.
Automation using barcodes
Putting information into the system can be made automatic by using barcodes, ideally in combination with the attendance system. In confirming the completed operation, the inserted data identifies the worker, workplace, the task performed and consumption. An online comparison of planned and actual values is created with the progressive completion of production.
