Excursion Prevention Is Possible With Process Integration

How much money do you think you loose due to excursions that occur on a daily basis on your production floor on a daily basis? Excursions that occur due to lack of planning, preventive maintenance and lack of process insight can become a major cost center. Also due to the highly random nature of excursions it becomes very hard to detect them and prevent them from happening. During a process simple or complicated, there are thousands of things that can go wrong, the more complex the procedure the more excursions that can occur. So, is there any way to detect a possible excursion and prevent it from becoming a major cost center?
Yes, there is a way. Process integration is the best way to achieve excursion prevention. The major area where an excursion is most likely to occur is generally at the interface of two subsequent operations of the process. This is because of the fact that the material under process changes hands during subsequent operations in terms of machines and personnel. With an integrated process the chances of an excursion happening become really slim, this is because there is a clear communication path and free flow of information in the entire process.
Theories like Total Productive Maintenance or TPM greatly emphasize the need for excursion prevention rather than the standard practice of excursion detection and subsequent corrective action. Most manufacturing processes in the world have become highly complex, to make it difficult for competition to imitate them, also almost every production process is unique in some way even though the equipment used might be similar to others. Information Technology and process automation and integration applications are helping organizations around the world exercise better control and achieve higher excursion prevention.
But just any ‘off the shelf’ application will not help you improve your unique process and changing the entire process to better suit the soft ware application does not make sense. A tailor made solution is required that has been designed to suit your process and then achieve the required functionality of excursion prevention. I2DS has been able to devise such solution which are helping its customers increase the effectiveness of their prevention efforts and thereby increasing their profitability as well.
Most systems lack the capability of tracking material through the production line; this may lead to a major loss in material and production time. There is an evident need for a solution that can help track material throughout the production line and I2DS has just the solution for this problem. We have developed a unique Inventory Management Solution, which allows you to track your material even after it leaves the Ware-house. Our system gives you the ability to track the exact location of material, anywhere and everywhere in the production line, right up to the finished goods stage.
Our solutions are capable of collaborating with your existing ERP system to give you better control and complete traceability for your material. Our system is in-line with JIT theory and helps you monitor the inventory at each and every step of production and insures you not only detect but prevent any excursion that might happen. Our system allows you to detect excursions faster and thereby helps you to prevent losses which might have otherwise occurred. So if you are interested in cutting your losses and improve traceability of your material, contact us right now and get a free demo of our path breaking solutions, e-mail us at
