AVIX and Lean Production
AVIX is a software solution designed to optimize production processes and increase productivity, making it a perfect fit for companies implementing Lean production principles. Lean production is a methodology that aims to minimize waste and maximize value, creating a more efficient production process.
AVIX's modules and functionalities can be used to support various Lean production practices, such as continuous improvement, standardization, visual management, and waste elimination. AVIX Resource Balance, for example, helps to balance the workload and reduce excessive work loads, which is a key principle of Lean production. AVIX FMEA can be used to identify potential failure modes and their effects, while AVIX SMED helps to reduce setup times and increase machine utilization.
In addition to providing tools that support Lean production, AVIX also promotes a culture of continuous improvement. The AVIX Loss Report, for example, can be used to identify and reduce various types of losses in the production process, including those caused by non-value-adding activities.
With AVIX, companies can more easily implement Lean production principles and practices, making their production processes more efficient and competitive in the global marketplace.
Video recording the processes
In Lean production, continuous improvement is a key principle. To achieve this, it is important to have a clear understanding of the production processes and identify areas where improvements can be made. One way to do this is by video recording the production processes.
By recording the processes, it is possible to capture and analyze every step of the process in detail. This provides a clear and objective view of the production processes, and helps identify potential inefficiencies, bottlenecks, and waste. Once identified, these issues can be addressed through process improvements, such as reducing waiting times, improving the flow of materials, and reducing defects.
Video recording the production processes also provides a useful reference for employees to ensure they are following the standard work procedures. By comparing their work to the film, they can identify areas where they can make improvements and streamline their work.
To summarize, video recording is a valuable tool for continuous improvement in Lean production. It allows for a clear and objective view of the processes, facilitates the identification of potential inefficiencies and waste, and provides a reference for employees to improve their work methodology.
Digital work instructions directly in a web browser
The AviX structure/sequence
...makes it possible to view work instructions in a web browser
The work instruction can be presented through a web browser, and shows the exact same information as in AviX. In other words, changes in AviX becomes directly accessible for the operator.
A web browser also makes is possible to access the process documentation from any device with a browser, e.g. a touch screen, computer or tablet.
AviX SFV (AviX Shop Floor Viewer) is the perfect solution for digital work instructions. The mangement of method- and time data is done same way as always in AviX, but with the advantage that it can be published for access through a web browser. This is a great benefit since it secures the operator always having easy access to the latest updated version of the work instruction!
