IPOsystem is the first Smart Factory system in the world to individually and directly control production.
IPOsystem makes optimal decisions concerning the sequence of events and the choice of resources for particular technological decisions without the participation of planners and direct supervisors (!) in the production facilities. The system individually manages the work of employees and machines on an ongoing basis, including all changes concerning the condition of these resources and the current status in the production process in real time. In the event of any departures from the standard norms, the system immediately, within few seconds, introduces corrections and makes additional optimisations. Each employee, after registration in the system, immediately receives a production operation order that is optimal at the moment of its giving. Due to this, we achieve the most effective realisation path for all production orders and best use of the available working time of the employees and machines.
IPOsystem differs significantly from MRP, ERP, APS and MES systems, whose task is the provision of information which facilitates the decision-making process by people.
Practical experience shows that managers, despite using these tools, are frequently unable to assess the real consequences of their decisions on the entire production process - such as the impact on efficiency and the status of all orders.
IPOsystem substantially alters the responsibilities of the management staff. After IPOsystem implementation, their major task is the supervision of system operation instead of comprehensive planning, logistic works and other activities related to the assignment of tasks for employees in the production area.
