Monitoring and logging production: What should we record?
Hello CNC Cookbook,
I have 5 CNCturning machines with which we manufacture rock drill bits of vast types and sizes (>100). I use each of the 5 machines to do a specific task like Stepping Down, ID Machining, OD machining, threading and finishing. I do not use any software to track my production like others do in ERP and PDM. Currently I just have a notebook in which I write down basic details like Date, M/C on time, operator, job, quantity, etc whiich I update at the end of the day.
What I am looking for is a better way to monitor my production without using any special software which I can update and maintain a hard copy. What should be the important data columns in a typical production monitoring sheet? We follow ISO 9001 standard. This data will be used to make yearly reports of operator and machine productivity. It should also reflect the status of production.
