Mobile Real-Time Shop Floor Visualization

This application was developed for a multinational client who is a major manufacturer for multi brand cigarettes. The client uses high end machinery for production of various brands of cigarettes. We have developed a suite of mobile application for real-time visualisation of shop-floor to enhance their shop-floor productivity and improved quality control.

Brand Change

Application used to track the machine idle time while switching from one brand to another during the manufacturing process. Each time when a brand is changed the machine has to be reconfigured for the new brand. The time between these cycles of changes is captured to minimize the idle time between brands. This app helped the client to devise optimal brand change pattern and also in setting time target for changing product attributes during brand change.
