iScan PDM - Production Data Management

Central system for the Acquisition and Administration of Production Data

 

iScan PDM – Production Data Management – is a central system applied for the acquisition and management of production data with barcode scanners. iScan is easy to handle and provides high transparency, batch traceability and a direct ERP connection.

iScan PDM manages production data starting with goods and material employed and ending with filling and packaging of the final product. Consumptions, deficient products and further production-relevant data are systematically recorded and documented - thus providing a high level of transparency concerning production processes and an assignment of consumptions to the related orders.

iScan PDM provides a direct connection to a higher-level ERP system. Master data, process instructions and orders are imported from the ERP system and, changes such as consumptions and rejects are reported to the higher-level system in real time. The direct assignment of consumptions and rejects to the related process orders facilitates the systematic analysis and optimization of production processes and a reduction of error sources.

iScan PDM creates transparency in production. Traceability of production process answers the question of when and which of your products were produced under which conditions.
 
Traceability makes it possible to minimize downtimes and quality losses, reduce production costs and ensure transparent production.
