PINpoint Information Systems Inc. Company Services
PINpoint's ANDON solution is all about visibility and accessibility. Access to information and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in real time is fundamental to decision making. If you need to know what station and who is holding up your line or what is the efficiency of your plant simply look up at a strategically placed LCD display or check your e-mail – the information is at your fingertips. Unlike traditional systems, PINpoint's ANDON system utilizes the same web configured server based architecture to reach beyond inputs and outputs to drive accountability by attaching names, reasons, and durations to any plant triggered condition. The PINpoint ANDON system is truly state of the art, flexible and replaces outdated bulky ANDON equipment of the past. One typical by-product of an Andon system is vital Operating Efficiency and Production Volume data yet realistically it is impossible for a traditional Andon system to generate these vital metrics in a meaningful way. PINpoint Andon tracks the cycle time of every element of standardized work that makes up a station level process. It automatically calculates, trends and sets these cycle times generated by a state of the art 'self learning mode'. PINpoint Andon provides the operator with the ability to categorize any over-cycle conditions to enable laser focused reporting that will empower pro-active decision making in your plant.
PINpoint SmartBuild Manufacturing Execution System (MES)
One of the problems with the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) space is the term MES means different things to different people. It is PINpoint's belief that MES is the space that reaches from your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to the equipment on your assembly line. Most MES solutions are extensions of ERP that manage materials and orders but don't truly execute anything or assist with the challenges of day to day manufacturing. Other solutions tend to be 'PLC centric' line control systems that rely on custom logic to provide a one off solution to control your process. PINpoint's vision of MES is one integrated solution that is focused on meeting the needs of the manufacturing space. One system, one heartbeat.
PINpoint's SmartBuild Manufacturing Execution System consists of three main products. First is the PINpoint SMARTscreen that gives you unprecedented process control, error-proofing, and data management. The second is the fully integrated PINpoint ANDON system that leverages the same infrastructure as SMARTscreen to provide multi-state buttons, qualification of Andon events as well as cutting edge strategies like a self-learning/self-programming mode for process cycle times that empowers the most powerful OEE reporting strategy in the industry. Together they form a paperless state-of-the-art plant floor communication platform. Third is the unique and fully integrated PINpoint Socket Tray, which ensures complete accuracy in socket selection and manufacturing execution. We invite you to explore the features, benefits, and values our customers realize every day through the deployment of PINpoint's products.
