Title: (EN) Quality management and intelligent manufacturing with labels and smart tags in event-based product manufacturing
Abstract:
(EN) Some of the disclosed embodiments include a system, method, and computer-readable media for storing, during a process, data associated with material. Also disclosed are a method of collecting, storing, and reporting machine productivity, waste, and delay information on an event basis in a manufacturing system (254), a method of capturing and storing material history, a method of automating tracking of positions of components used in a process and correlating portions of a component with production problems, an improved inventory management system, and a method of tracking and recording actions of specific operators of a process performed by a machine. The embodiments are operable in an intelligent manufacturing system including a process for converting raw materials (248) to a product, a process control system including one or more sensors capable of generating an alarm in response to an event that results in one of waste, machine delay, or decrease product quality, a data logger (228) associated with the process control system for obtaining event parameters associated with the event, a database (272) on a server for recording event parameters obtained by the data logger, and a reporting system cooperatively associated with the database for reporting productivity parameters regarding the process derived at least in part from the event parameters.
