While operators manually check the line for rogue components and go through detailed SOP's and checklists to document that the line has been properly cleared, the clock is ticking.
Often well past the 60-minute mark.
And with a future of smaller batches and multiple daily BCOs, reducing the time to next batch is a key priority.
An automated line clearance system based on machine vision completes inspections quickly, consistently and repeatably.
Improved line availability and higher throughput – perhaps even to the extend where new line investments can be postponed.
Significant OEE improvements mean that the average ROI is counted in days.
Reduce risk by not relying on the human eye and meet auditors’ demands at any time with easily located and comprehensive documentation that details exactly what has happened, which actions were taken and by whom.
No more spending massive amounts of time on paperwork. Less bending out of shape to check hard-to-reach areas for rogue components.
CIM LineClear guides operators through the line clearance process by means of a color-coded overview of both automatically cleared sections, manually cleared sections and failed inspections.
