Solve the labor shortage by improving the operator per machine ratio
Optimal Path System (OPS) tells the operator where to go and when, making it easier to manage more machines at the same time.
OPS is the first ever system that joins scheduling capabilities with live machine data. Instead of telling the operator that the machine has stopped (which they usually already know because they are in front of the machine), the system indicates when the machine will stop and which tasks are next.
Increase machine uptime thanks to dynamic scheduling
All the information refreshes in real-time using machine data collected by JITbase through its machine monitoring system. Whether an unplanned stop occurs on a machine, or a manual operation takes longer than expected, the system gets the information in real-time and adjusts the short-term planning accordingly.
OPS identifies the optimal path with AI and optimization algorithms
The optimization algorithms behind the scheduling system are designed to reduce machine downtime. As a result, less operators can optimize machine uptime by following the optimal path calculated in real-time.
Safely leave the machine running
“I don’t want the machinist to leave one machine for another, what if something goes wrong? The whole part is scrapped…”
With OPS, the machinist sees the spindle load for all running CNC machines. He can safely walk away from lights-out operations to manage other CNC machines, while keeping an eye on all the spindle loads.
In the case of an unplanned stop during a lights-out operation, the machinist is alerted immediately so he can take action ASAP and not lose productivity.
Improve operator workload management with planning simulation
OPS also helps with planning and operator allocation on machines. Planners easily simulate productions to find programs that fit well together and that can be efficiently managed by a single operator. Improve the machinist’s efficiency thanks to smart workload management.
