Provides    production    operators    with    the    information    and    tools    required    for    all    operations    within    paper manufacturing   and   conversion.   The   user   interface   provides   the   operator   with   all   the   information   to   carry   out   the tasks   required   at   each   stage. This   includes   a   running   order,   operating   instructions,   details   of   allocated   materials, quality   information   and   drill-down   to   under-lying   order   information.   The   operator   feeds   back   to   the   system   the details of items produced, downtime, broke and any other production events. The   system   provides   the   facilities   to   capture   operating   conditions,   either   manually   or   automatically.   These   can be   accessed   for   comparative   purposes   during   future   runs,   including   the   option   for   the   ‘best’   conditions   recorded. These can also be used as a starting point for machine set up Wherever   possible,   feedback   is   automated   to   capture   the   relevant   information   directly   from   the   process.   Jumbo turn-out   is   normally   captured   directly   from   the   DCS   and   there   are   proven   interfaces   to   the   most   popular systems,    e.g.    ABB    and    Measurex.    Interfaces    to    drive    or    receive    information    from    downstream    process equipment   can   also   incorporated,   e.g.   knife   setting,   roll   handling   systems,   sheet   counters,   ink-jet   markers, weighscales, label applicators, etc. As    jobs    are    completed,    they    are    cleared    from    the    operator’s    screen.    If    manufacturing    problems    are encountered,   the   operators   are   able   to   select   any   item   on   the   running   order,   rather   than   process   jobs   in   the planned   sequence,   but   details   must   be   recorded   to   ensure   that   all   parties   are   aware   of   the   changes   and   the implications to both production schedules and deliveries. As   items   are   created   ascman   calculates   the   theoretical   weight   and   compares   this   to   the   actual   weight   (if available). A   unique   bar   coded   identity   is   printed   for   each   item   and   the   running   order   is   updated   accordingly. The running   orders   for   downstream   processes   are   updated   with   the   details   of   the   materials   now   available   for   further processing. All   relevant   users   throughout   the   mill   can   see   details   of   WIP   items   as   they   are   created.   If   applicable, items   are   automatically   scheduled   for   Quality   testing.   Results   of   testing   are   displayed   for   the   operator   to   indicate product performance and potential remedial action. A textual log is included to capture all operator comments. In   all   operations,   the   final   transaction   is   for   the   item   to   be   weighed   off.      At   this   point,   final   product   labels   are produced in line with the Customer and Order Details.
