APROPO


The APROPO Technology is characterized by two outstanding features:
The high level of technical information and the independancy of product and processes. This helps you configure your products in a very smart and powerful way.

Production planning

  • Process related resourcing of material
  • Material, personnel and machine capacity demands for each planning level
  • Two stage capacity check for timing allocation of required resources
  • Bill of material, tools, inspection devices, supplies etc.
  • Specification of co-products
  • Automatic production planning
 

Production

  • Automatic, semi-automatic and manual start and stop of production
  • External production with incoming and outgoing goods integrated
  • Processing of formulas and functions
  • Parallel use of one machine for several jobs
  • Computation of processing times and production process costs
  • Production history

Work Processes

  • Prescriptions, drawings, documents, references
  • Technical parameters with nominasl and tolerances
  • Feedback by with evaluation of formulas and functions
  • Machine preconfiguration
  • Measurement preconfiguration
  • Processes with several phases
  • Parallel processes

Product

  • Technologies/Processes can be configured independent of the product
  • Product-dependent bill of material, supplies and tools
  • Assign technologies - products
  • Parameters with nominals and tolerances: Apply to compositions, sensor system, interfaces, background computations, QA evaluations and more
  • Analytical calculation of production costs and product price
  • Protection for qualified products
  • Order-specific changes of bills of material and process features

Quality assurance

  • Sampling rules
  • Freely definable quality characteristics and inspection instructions
  • US american FDA rules, Part 11
  • Inspection tools management
  • Analysis of variance, target/actual performance comparison
  • Extensive statistics

APROPO XLS

APROPO XLS updates nominals and other values from the current lot and writes them to EXCEL worksheets. After production the relevant information is given back to APROPO.
