PINpoint Information Systems
Perfect Balance of Andon, Work Order Processing, Tracking, and Reporting for
Control Assembly Lines.
Andon 3D

is the evolution of andon into a software solution;

using PINpoint for Andon alone makes for the perfect entry into manufacturing execution, the foundation to build your MES/MOM strategy on.
Andon 3D provides you essential production information:
first verify is a worker even at the station; are they certified to do the job? If yes,
provide them work instructions, quality alerts, message videos, etc.
process control, and error-proofing system with
work order entry, tracking, reporting, manufacturing line creation and editing, production scheduling, Andon 3D and more
PINpoint is not your "average" Manufacturing Execution System (MES) / Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) solution.

Scalable Software Solution
Network Infrustructure
1. How much
waste in time and money do you incur due to reactionary measures that
do not solve the broader issues?
2. Are you tired of investing in
‘band aid’ fixes
that are not scalable, need frequent
maintenance and upgrading?
Complex PLC logic
is a typical pain, it is time consuming to re-code and it is error prone.
4. Do you
rely on 3rd party companies
to solve problems they are not qualified
to? Are they the most knowledgeable of the process to solve your particular problem?
5. Pains due to

Not Knowing

what’s happening on the assembly line; how can you
optimize your manufacturing if you do not know what to optimize?
6. Are you producing
poor quality products? Have you lost customers
and market share
due to quality issues?
7. How motivated is your manufacturing team? Is employee moral low?
Are you
benefiting from the full-potential of your people?
8. What are your pains due to
timing and availability?
Are all needed materials/parts
always available on time on the assembly line?
