Complete Solution

Challenges in manufacturing don’t end just on the shop floor. That’s why we offer a complete package of integrated manufacturing solutions. Here are a few examples of what you can do with our applications:

01. Schedule deliveries

With Novacura Flow applications, you can plan material requisitions based on your production plans and current stock levels. It is possible because these areas are supported by one integrated solution.

You can use B2B Portal to confirm the delivery schedule with your suppliers and – finally – book a suitable time-slot for unloading!

02. Connect internal logistics with the shop floor

Your internal logistics may use the same mobile application as your shop floor operators. Therefore, all the material delivery requests, material return requests, or packaging return requests issued from the work center at the production line are immediately visible to logistics operators. And when logistics start delivery, production immediately gets a status update.

03. Optimize picking paths

Picking different materials and components for the production might be complicated – warehouse operators have to gather different elements spread out across the entire inventory. And – since they operate in the “JIT” environment, they are under time pressure.

In our warehouse solution (complete mobile WMS), the operator sees picking lists in a mobile application. The solution optimizes the picking path based on the location, weight, further unload sequence, or even expiration date of particular goods. And – of course – they use barcode scanners to do that!

04. Work mobile and report every operation

Thanks to the mobile shop floor application, operators get all the details about their work orders. And they get it immediately after the plan has been updated (online). Operators report their work, and this information is also directly sent to the ERP / planning system.

They not only report their direct tasks, but they can also report a downtime, call for material supply, request packages, report scrap or call for maintenance. Thanks to that, managers have a complete online insight into their operations, react quickly, and optimize OEE regularly.

05. Incorporate maintenance and reduce downtime

In Novacura Flow, production management and Maintenance management are parts of one manufacturing solution. The service team can fit maintenance activities into production plans, even if they change every hour. Moreover, whenever the downtime is identified at the shop floor, maintenance team can be automatically notified in the mobile application and start acting before the machine operator starts calling for help. It helps reduce MTW.

Incorporate maintenance and reduce downtime

06. Track actual data & optimize the entire process

With the Novacura Flow applications, Production efficiency can be precisely measured – you can gather information from all departments that use mobile applications and read them directly from your devices.

Novacura Flow is equipped with different industrial connectors (BLE, OPC-UA, PLC, RFID) that allow it to read other online information from other devices and machines.

Our Software Platform

We take care not only of the business capabilities but also of the technical aspects and features. Below we present key characteristics differentiating our offering from a specific manufacturing solution.

Interface optimized for thousands of operations per day

Our applications run on a very sophisticated software platform – Novacura Flow. One of the key foundations of this platform is to run on every device – from barcode scanners, via mobile phones and tablets, up to workstations equipped with large screens.

But we are not just another SaaS software that offers that. We optimized our user interface for users that work on a shop floor, in a warehouse, or the field. We know that every “click” matters for these people because they run 1000+ operations a day!

Ready for changes thanks to low-code heart!

Ready for changes thanks to low-code heart!

Every company is different from the other. You might have specific processes and require unique features and we are ready for that! We created our applications for manufacturing based on the low-code platform.

Our applications are not hard-coded so our customers can modify them or clone them and create variants. And they can build their own applications. And thanks to the low-code engine they can create applications by drawing them like they draw a business process.

Integration with ERP. Deep integration!

Our low-code platform Novacura Flow and industry applications can play a vital role in the manufacturing company. But we don’t forget about the ERP!

We treat the ERP system as a primary system – all master data, operations and reported information are stored there. And everything that users do in Novacura is immediately visible in the ERP! It is possible because our platform has specialized online connectors to ERP systems. You can think about Novacura Flow as an alternative, mobile and efficient user interface for your ERP.  Thus, you can easily adopt Novacura Flow without changing surrounding processes that can still run in your ERP!
