Scheduling

Easily stay on top of your plant schedule with schedules that align efficient runs with customers needs. Increase your ability to inject rush orders into the schedule with less disruption and full visibility of raw material needs.

Material Management

Ensure consistent quality results.

Elegant blend sheet creation and delivery mechanism results in improved communication to the floor.

i21 has a flexible unit of measure configuration.

Ensure quality, prevent errors, and improve communication.

Plant View

Ability to view the status of your inventory and product in real-time including work-in-process. Transparency can be applied at plant level or across multiple plant locations.

Execution

Streamline your production floor from scheduling to execution.
Ensure that operators have clear, consistent directions.
Operators will receive executable instructions like what to make, how to make it and when to make it.

Production optimization

Use constraints-based limited capacity schedules to improve your production line efficiencies. Innovative scheduling methods save money, reduce downtime and change-overs.

Matching production requirements with on-hand inventory helps create the optimal production plan. Visual scheduling screens allow you to quickly identify the status of your production line at any point in time.

Quality Management

Configurable requirements

Automate your quality control initiatives and establish quality parameters for raw material and finished goods germane to your business. Maintain testing rules and acceptable ranges for each test. Adapt your quality initiatives to suit your needs for regulatory compliance and avoid manually tracking quality data.

Blend management​

Execute established blends or permit authorized users to vary combinations according to raw material quality characteristics. Centralize blend control across multiple plants or release control to the individual plant level. Manage blending strategies based on raw material quality, cost, and expiration.

In-process controls​

Flexibility and control to insert quality checks anywhere in the production process – whether upon arrival, WIP, or finished goods. Prevent the use of materials until an authorized user approves the quality. Capture yield at the run level, helping to immediately identify and correct process issues that impact throughput and cost.​

Lot traceability​

Quickly and easily track down substandard or contaminated batches. Promptly zero into all components of a finished good product run. Ability to peer into all the finished goods produced from a particular lot.

Audit trail

Easy to oversee the organization and manage by exception. Logs all transactions and actions impacting inventory, including the end of shift data, making this information available on demand. Full audit trail of control recipe release. Identify precise components of any product produced on any day. Flexible reporting of production results, inventory, quality and more.

Inventory

Inventory levels​

Allows you to optimize inventory levels. Inventory data can be managed by quality status and expiration allowing for optimal use of available inventory.​

Work in process​

Have transparency to your WIP inventory. Easy to capture/view quality information by batch improving the consistency of quality.

Raw materials​

Ability to capture critical traceability and regulatory information in addition to cost and quantities. Track raw materials and warehouse location using bar codes, resulting in less time spent locating inventory in the warehouse and greater inventory accuracy. 

Finished goods​

Automatically update finished goods upon quality release, providing immediate access to sellable inventory. Relieves raw material inventory giving confidence that you have the right materials on-hand to fulfill orders.

Self-correcting inventory​

Innovative system takes into consideration your operational efficiency, not just your accounting needs. Allows production to continue while tracking variances to be corrected during cycle counts.
