What is the manufacturing production process in SFactrix?

A Manufacturing process is defined as a sequence of actions performed, for transforming raw materials into a finished product. In manufacturing, there are various types of processes involved to manufacture the final product such as preparation, production, Assembling, packaging, etc. Every order follows these processes to build up the final product.

Creating each manufacturing process sequentially against an order is essential to identify the step-by-step production processes and determine the output. Adding a manufacturing Process in SFactrix.ai is the fifth step in the hierarchy of setting up a smart factory. Process in SFactrix denotes a job/ Production type in a work center.

Pre-conditions:

The plant should be created under the organization setting before adding the manufacturing process.

What is the benefit of adding a manufacturing production process in SFactrix?

A manufacturing process is a structured way of representing each tasks involved in building up a final product. SFactrix enables its users to add innumerable manufacturing processes that will help users to get real-time data on the entire manufacturing process. This real-time data includes the duration of each process, total quality production against each manufacturing process order quantity production, rejection count, etc. Adding a manufacturing process will help its users while creating a job, assigning a job, and viewing each job process data.

Steps to view the Job and related production processes

  • Login to https://app.sfactrix.ai.

  • Go to the 'settings' page, click on 'Jobs' under Action

  • Each work/job order process data is generated.

    Job Process

Adding a manufacturing process will also help the users while creating a Bill of Materials (BOM) to estimate the total Cycle Time, total cost, total no. of parts/ materials used against each manufacturing process to make a final part/ product, etc. Hence adding a manufacturing process is essential in SFacrix.
