Production Manager integrates with Hypertherm’s EDGE Connect® CNC to automatically capture machine data without the need for operator intervention. In addition, it displays real-time production data, so team members across an organization can track the status of job orders, the production schedule, and pending inventory requirements. Additional features include:
- Dashboard view. Intuitive dashboard view provides production stats and trends in one view. Color-coded status alerts help users understand the on-screen information while an interactive display allows users to drill down for additional insight.
- Real-time information. Real-time machine data from a CNC is transferred to Production Manager. This transfer enables users to track job progress from pending, to in-production, to actual completion time, making it easier to respond to customer inquiries and to forecast the production schedule.
- Flexible intervention. Cancel or hold orders to add or remove parts based on last-minute changes. Users can view machine backlogs and ensure loads are evenly distributed across cutting machines in a way that optimizes the production schedule.
- Remote access. Users can access Production Manager via a computer, mobile phone, or tablet anytime and anywhere that users have a secured network or VPN connection.
“Production Manager takes the guesswork out of an organization’s daily operation by connecting everyone to the same information, in real-time to drive business cohesion and continuity,” said Tom Stillwell, product marketing manager for Hypertherm software products. “Production Manager is also a great example of how Hypertherm hardware and software products work together to provide customers with new levels of automation and efficiency, something that is increasingly important as companies move toward a more digital shop floor. Production Manager further extends ProNest’s reach across organizations by interfacing with all aspects of the cutting operation, including sales, customer service, procurement, and management.”
