A System for Capturing and Monitoring Machine Breakdown in Shop Floor Using Open Source Software for Improved Productivity 2014-01-0294
The machine breakdown occurrences in the shop floor of the manufacturing facilities of Ashok Leyland, were captured into the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system with significant time delay. This affected the overall productivity of the shop floor lines. Hence, there was a need to deploy a computer based application with a simple Graphical User Interface (GUI) in the shop floor, to capture breakdown and update the ERP system accordingly. This application was meant for use by the shop floor associates, who come to know of the machine breakdown occurrences first. Also, there was a need for the managers at various levels to monitor the breakdowns, to ensure their timely closure.
