Henderson and Optio in Partnership for Shop Floor Control Software
Henderson Sewing Machine Co. Inc. (Andalusia, Alabama USA) and Optio (Boulder, Colorado USA) announce a partnership for the marketing, sales, and support of the Optio Shop Floor Control Software. Optio’s Shop Floor Control software identifies problems faster, so factories can increase their up-time. Optio digitizes the entire process, from raw materials to finished goods, so that optimizations in the platform necessarily optimize ROI, versus being machine-focused where optimizations don't always turn into profit.
By graphically representing the factory floor, Optio is intuitive and the market leader in ease-of-use, from the shop floor operators to the executive suite. Driven by off-the-shelf tablets located at each workstation, operators move digital work orders through the process when they complete a lot. With this simple visual interface, Optio can:
- Measure cycles times and calculate lead times, in real-time
- Report defects downstream in real-time
- Intelligently schedule production
- Measure worker and machine efficiency
- Alert management when bottlenecks occur
- Find where any PO is on the floor
- Provide the metrics to do real-time Lean Manufacturing
- Show digital Work Instructions (when and where they are needed)
- and a lot more.
Optio provides the tools to see the value on the floor in real-time. Once the Optio data is used to identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies, improvements can be made to lead times, throughput, and productivity. The digital age for the sewing industry has arrived and the experience of Henderson Sewing combined with the modern tools from Optio allows for a ‘seamless’ transition for North American factories to compete with the best in the world. Optio is incredibly easy to set up. With 30 minutes of your time, we can set up your factory floor in Optio so you can see exactly how it works... and for Less than $500.00 for 20-stations... Very Affordable, for even the smallest companies. Come be a part of our digital transformation at Texprocess Americas expo in Atlanta, Georgia, May 17-19, 2022 in Booth #1033.
