Software application and engineering company Red Ledge www.redledge.co.uk, is launching an innovative new manufacturing production system that saves users time and money, according to the company. ‘Red Ledge Manufacturer’ uses pre-designed, pre-defined and packaged production processes that can be dragged and dropped as on-screen objects and that automatically communicate with other processes. They cover all areas of production, from raw materials to finished goods and allow faster, more cost-effective deployment for any manufacturer, say Red Ledge.
Red Ledge Manufacturer tracks and manages every stage of production and includes KPI reporting for manufacturing targets. System choices include RFID or barcode information capture with full traceability, plus the option to add client-specific custom production processes, and warehouse management (WMS) to the mix. Red Ledge Manufacturer can be integrated with all mainstream ERP systems.
In the case of Red Ledge Manufacturer using RFID, ‘choke-point’ portal readers are used to seamlessly track every stage of production and warehousing, capturing and reporting data in real time from RFID-tagged assets, with near-100% accuracy.
“Manufacturing production systems can be expensive and time-consuming to install. This one is neither, as it can be deployed very rapidly” says Red Ledge technical director Alan Wilcockson.
