jitCATS helps you plan and control your production, meet delivery deadlines and balances your capacities. The system was developed specifically for the operation and quality documentation of the production of variant-rich products and thereby controls assembly orders according to sequence.
Developed as a flexible system, jitCATS (just-in-time Control And Tracking System) has attractive features that reduce investment, commissioning time, changeover effort and running costs. Any OEM or module supplier can use jitCATS as a manufacturing execution system (MES) for the entire process. It includes the continuous control of all operating equipment, quality control loops up to shipping with sequence control.
Scope of services
The all-in-one solution for jit/jis module production facilities including pre-assembly:
jit call-off processing and job scheduling
jit production material and operating resources control
Control of pre-assembly
Quality management and performance analyses
Sequence and shipping control
Option: control of demand-driven material provision
Project progress when introducing jitCATS
1. Concept phase
Document and describe required technologies
Work together to develop a technology matrix as the basis for further project steps
2. Software installation
Install jitCATS software on customer server
Load the associated application on the relevant clients
Set up the jitCATS PLC cell controller provided by Leadec
3. Line configuration
Joint configuration and setup of production line on the control station using the jitCATS configurator
Determine cycle times and machine control
Commissioning of the system and supervision of ramp-up until specified regular production level is reached
On request, further support and optimization of production
Result: a highly efficient and flexible production control system in the era of Industry 4.0.
Application area jitCATS
Added value through jitCATS
The scalable process model and parameter setting of jitCATS reduce follow-on investments and maintenance costs; system adjustments can be done by the user.
Thanks to dynamic management of operating resources, the jitCATS configurator achieves time savings of up to 80% for retooling within the production line.
The simple, repeatedly proven installation and implementation of jitCATS creates time savings of up to 50% for commissioning and ramp-up.
The optional jitCATS cloud solution enables global networking and avoids high local investment costs for IT and infrastructure.
The open interfaces of jitCATS for common ERP systems (e.g. SAP) avoid multiple inputs and ensure consistency of information.
The closed control loops and the use of reliable software elements in jitCATS reduce quality costs and improve process reliability.
The pull principle underlying jitCATS minimizes the intermediate buffer and reduces the necessary inventory of intermediate products.
The jitCATS open licensing model allows it to be easily extended to other production lines.
