Planning and balancing for Single or multi-phase production in a spinning mill.
Visual-Spin allows the activity of the spinning frames to be planned/scheduled (single-phase configuration), or the control to be extended to balancing and optimizing processes before and after spinning as well (multi-phase configuration).
Visual-Spin is natively integrated with porini G-TeX ERP or can be utilized in a stand-alone environment.
Visual-Spin can be used in spinning companies that operate on the basis of production plans, production orders or a combination of the two.
Thanks to a truly interactive graphic dashboard (Gantt chart for each individual spinning work-center) Visual-Spin parameters can be set for each production unit/line (families of products that are homogeneous and can be autonomously defined by the user). This output configuration is made possible by allocating each machine to groups or lines. The settings can be modified at any time.

With Visual-Spin, production plans can be adjusted by period, using Gantt charts. Specific triggers allow production capacity bookings to be handled.
Visual-Spin plans and schedules while taking the following factors into consideration: 
  •  The operating timetable of each individual production resource, with all the variables such as shifts, extra hours, stops for holidays, repairs,… etc.
  •  The product/machine compatibility and the productivity per count;
  •  The levels of use of each resource such as “entire machine”, “single side”, “number of heads/spindles”, etc.
  •  The links between bills of material given by the codes of the intermediate products (wick, sliver, etc..), also considering all kinds of waste. The system also manages bills of materials for blended fibers or melange
  •  The quantities of each blend that are needed in order to produce the required quantity of yarns, always allowing intervention when the average count goes out of tolerance range
  •  The availability of material handling media such as cans, bobbins, etc… using indicators of minimum and maximum stock levels definable for each center 
  •  The fine scheduling of production orders related to the so-called “critical center”, taking into account any losses, efficiency per style, usage per machine, efficiency per department. The user can also force data manually when required
  •  Automatic generation of production plans or production orders to be planned in prior or subsequent departments. These documents also make reference to the intermediate product code Control of the real production progress status, whether this data is captured manually or automatically gathered from the machines. Capturing production through periodic back-flush calculations at a control point is also a possibility
  •  Monitoring and dynamic management of safety stock levels classified per product/lot. It is also possible when necessary to create under-stock alarms
  •  Balance of daily or hourly production rates for each production center, always taking into account prior work-centers and their safety stocks
  •  Modification of production plans by transferring quantities among different machines and automatically reprogramming prior and subsequent work-centers
  •  Running simulations in order to determine the optimum production plan.
