July 2, 2018 – Mitsubishi Electric Automation released a tool for small to medium-sized factories to realize the benefits of an Andon system, with the introduction of iQ Monozukuri Andon. The Andon package facilitates visualization of production sites using Mitsubishi Electric’s GOT2000 graphic operation terminal and a web browser. iQ Monozukuri Andon offers pre-engineered project data and software to implement and operate an Andon system.
By implementing the iQ Monozukuri Andon system, all stakeholders within the factory can visualize the production status. It allows production managers to monitor the production status remotely and adjust the production plan accordingly. They can also set up announcements for changeovers.
When a problem occurs on the factory floor, factory workers can notify supervisors and maintenance staff without stepping away from the production line. Using a connected mobile device, supervisors and maintenance personnel can visualize the problem remotely and quickly determine how to respond.
iQ Monozukuri Andon is designed to be used in electrical and electronics industries because of their short production cycles and frequent changeovers.
