“With PINpoint V5 we always know where we should be, where we are, and how we got here.”
PINpoint V5 allows you to start every shift with a plan for every product you’re going to make. You’ll know where that product will be at any given time and because the plan is graphical and accessible to everyone, you’ve stacked the odds of achieving manufacturing excellence in your favor.
Executing your plan is simplified by electronically deploying Work Orders, scheduling production, and sequencing subassembly lines to eliminate common problems. You’ll stay on schedule using production dashboards, performance heatmaps, and KPIs that measure progress relative to plan, aligning your entire manufacturing team!
“Since installing PINpoint V5 we’ve reduced costs of warranty claims by 95%!”
Standardized work is critical to increasing productivity and quality and it starts with a repeatable process. With PINpoint V5, you configure the processes you want, from a “recipe to build a product” to an “operator returning from vacation,” and deploy it throughout your plant. This gives you confidence that it will be executed exactly as defined!
Error-proofing is in the software’s DNA – from simple checklists to sophisticated function test equipment; all tasks must be complete, with data to prove it, before a product is released from a station. Built-in drivers for electric fastening tools allow you to deploy complex fastening strategies with ease and are a hallmark of PINpoint V5. Guarantee product integrity with 100% product traceability.
Operator focus has become the differentiating factor for global manufacturers. PINpoint V5 puts the operator first by ensuring all instructions and alerts are communicated before work can begin. Graphical step-by-step instructions, real-time performance feedback, Health & Safety protocols all increase operator engagement!
Process discrepancies are a way of life, and PINpoint V5 closes the loop on each one. ANDON features raise visibility and establish two-way communication with your operators – your first line of defense closest to the problem. Real-time validation of each product allows you to answer the ultimate question: “Can I ship this product to my customer?”
“We’ve increased production output by 12% and maintained the new rate! Our PINpoint data was the launching pad!”
Increasing production of high-quality products may feel like a paradox; the closer you get to one goal the further you get from the other. PINpoint V5 helps you reach both goals at the same time with the unprecedented 5-Bucket Time Model. The 5-Bucket Time Model characterizes manufacturing in a whole new way to identify and solve hidden inefficiencies. The results in industry have been massive! You’re also able to utilize the Business Intelligence platform of your choice and explore your dataset to find your improvement opportunities.
“We were running PINpoint V5 for a while but it wasn’t until we did a PASS review that we truly ‘got it’!”
