Productive Process Patterns
Educational article: (AP400) Productive Process Pattern: Process reporting [en]
Productive Process Pattern™ from the post-process monitoring layer of the Productive Process Pyramid™. Most CNC control systems have the capability to send customised information through RS232 serial ports, an Ethernet connection, or to the hard disc of the CNC control. The reporting capability allows a traceable record of the ‘route’ used to manufacture a component to be stored along with the component inspection data. For example, it is possible to log any detail of machine updates, required re-machining, or tools that were broken.
Educational article: (AP403) Productive Process Pattern: Critical feature reporting [en]
Productive Process Pattern™ from the post-process monitoring layer of the Productive Process Pyramid™. Select the critical features which are to be measured and reported, according to a set of criteria. Features should be reported where the failure of a feature would be indicative of a more serious process fault (e.g. the final feature machined with each tool); or when the position or dimension of a feature is dependent on other measured features or ‘in process’ calculations.
White paper: Survival of the fittest - the process control imperative [en]
In tough times, manufacturers focus on reducing their operating costs, but may not be able to afford to spend their way out by buying more productive machinery. With that pathway closed, what are the opportunities for radically reducing costs without replacing existing machines? This paper explores four areas where substantial savings can be found if firms are prepared to change the way they control their machining processes.
