The Steps

cells mes product job tracking software

Easily create your production routings that specify the steps
that are used to manufacture your product in minutes. 
A simple straight forward Excel route builder creates new production process routings in
minutes. Create new process routing from scratch or import an existing process routing then
modify and export out as your new process routing. Once your process routing is created it's
time for production to build your product as outlined in the next few pictures that follow.

Customer comments:

"We purchased the CELLS WORKFLOW Manufacturing Execution System in early 2005. It was up and running quickly. CELLS WORKFLOW MES tracks product at approximately 20 stations on our production floor. Some stations have only barcode readers and others have barcode and keyboard entry, CELLS WORKFLOW handles both equally. The CELLS WORKFLOW Manufacturing Execution System tracks work orders that have individual serial numbers or that travel as non-serialized lots, you can even serialize in the middle of the routing. Attach finished sub-assemblies to the assembly in process and it's all tracked. CELLS WORKFLOW is a great value and we are extremely pleased with Unisoft's support and responsiveness to our needs."

"Lecroy Corp. has been using Unisoft CELLS WORKFLOW Product Tracking Manufacturing Execution System Software since 1996. In 1996 we purchased a 15 station license of CELLS WORKFLOW MES and in 1997 we upgraded to a site license in this New York plant and also tied in all production in our sister plant in Geneva, Switzerland via Unisoft CELLS WORKFLOW MES. CELLS WORKFLOW is now installed in over 200 locations on our factory floors. We went from 100% paper to 100% paperless with CELLS WORKFLOW and have tracked millions of transactions. Forced routing flow eliminates assembly errors and CELLS WORKFLOW MES delivers the exact current document from a controlled source to each step in the assembly process. Our production equipment, burn-in chambers, Lab View/Lab Windows, etc. automatically log data to the CELLS WORKFLOW MES software. Part bins are automatically restocked weekly via a CELLS WORKFLOW MES report, daily quality reports are generated, etc. Production data collected in the CELLS WORKFLOW Manufacturing Execution System is used by our BAAN ERP system to pin point the exact status of all production."

A Unisoft client located in the United States has been using the CELLS WORKFLOW Product Tracking MES Software since 1997. This large company makes class 1 medical products under FDA audit. The Unisoft CELLS WORKFLOW MES software tracks their product lines throughout the production process and provides current production status to their Oracle ERP system (JD Edwards EnterpriseOne). A subsidiary of their's located in Canada is selecting a MES tracking software system for their facility and representatives from their plant visited the United States parent company in November of 2005 to look at the Unisoft CELLS WORKFLOW MES Plant Execution System installed there.

Below is a summary of that visit. We are proud of their selection of the Unisoft CELLS WORKFLOW Product Tracking Manufacturing Execution System software. If you wish further details on the company please contact Unisoft directly.

"Unisoft is presently the choice application for adding an FDA compliant electronic data collection and WIP tracking system here at this facility in Canada. I had the VP of operations and head of the IT department visit our parent company in the United States to get an extended presentation from the Unisoft CELLS WORKFLOW MES Administrator there. The presentation went very well and they both agreed Unisoft would be the best fit. Manufacturing and IT have started to look at how they will structure routings and what they will need for related equipment such as bar code scanners and PC's."

"Chiaro Networks purchase the CELLS WORKFLOW Product Tracking Manufacturing Execution System in 2001. We track every product in the plant with CELLS WORKFLOW MES and we have a variety of items that can have a complex number of operations and outcomes at each step. CELLS WORKFLOW MES forces the exact routing and tracks and collects the data we need. Also for customer returns we have the complete build history and we can add to that return unit the routing steps in the returns process. Support for CELLS WORKFLOW MES has been very good."

Steve Kummel

Customer comments, December 2005, about their ETL and UL certification:

"As we discussed, I was present during a recent product certification process conducted by ETL. This audit was conducted at the company where I had installed the Unisoft CELLS WORKFLOW MES last year. We took the auditor through the paperless manufacturing flow we have developed using the CELLS WORKFLOW Product Tracking Manufacturing Execution System software. With viewable Bills of Materials, assembly instructions, and product documentation we made a definite positive impression on the evaluator. We also demonstrated the fact that we could pick any serial number at random and provide up to the moment product status. Finally, we showed how it is impossible to move a part out of process flow while using the CELLS WORKFLOW MES software to control the routing. During the debrief I was told by the auditors that this is one of the more sophisticated control systems and that this "small" company had far greater manufacturing controls than some of the "bigger" companies. We now have both UL and ETL certification with the help of the CELLS WORKFLOW Manufacturing Execution System.

"As the integrator of this platform at this customer, I appreciate your team at Unisoft making me "look good" and will continue to promote your CELLS WORKFLOW MES product whenever possible."

WORKFLOW - The CELLS WORKFLOW MES Manufacturing Execution System enables paperless Workflow from receiving, to production, assembly, testing, and shipping. With CELLS WORKFLOW MES forced routing, customers have the ability to control and track shop floor transactions AND virtually eliminate assembly errors. Improved process control reduces cycle times and provides control where items go for their next step. CELLS WORKFLOW MES allows for modification of routes as well as capturing the actual route and rework operations.  Routings can be validated to avoid missed operations. Unisoft CELLS WORKFLOW Product Tracking Manufacturing Execution System software answers these questions: Where does this unit go next? Is this the most current revision? What documents are associated with this unit? What do I do now? When will my work order be completed? How many times has this unit failed before?

 WIP/PRODUCT TRACKING - CELLS WORKFLOW MES tracking enables you to know where each part/assembly/serial/number/lot/work order is, where and WHEN it goes next, and how much work is waiting at each station. You'll be able to monitor, analyze, and reduce cycle times throughout the WIP process. Operation codes can be captured at each step to document work done to the part. With real-time visibility, management time can be better utilized on profit and productivity improvement.

CELLS WORKFLOW MES can import and display virtually any CAD, ECAD, Gerber or BOM file.  Then CELLS WORKFLOW MES displays your PC Board assemblies in rich detail and users can find components, pins, nets, netnames, part numbers, etc. Find shorts between traces (highlight single or multiple traces).  Display markup overlays that go on top of the PC Board assembly to create work and assembly instructions.  Zoom, pan, rotate, flipping, split-screen display, active schematic view that is hyper-linked to the assembly -- find what you are looking for in a fraction of the time it would take with paper prints.

Online Documentation.

The CELLS WORKFLOW Product Tracking Manufacturing Execution System Software brings your users just the documents they need for the assembly and step they are working on right now. When the user scans or types in the ID of the unit he/she is working on, CELLS WORKFLOW MES automatically locates the assembly drawing, plus all documents related to the assembly and its parts. CELLS WORKFLOW MES automatically brings the main document(s) you wish direct to the display screen, other documents needed in that process step are sent to the CELLS WORKFLOW MES View menu where they can be displayed as needed. Also documents can be hyperlinked to items and areas on the main display then clicked on to display that document.  Virtually any type of document can be viewed - Adobe PDF, HTML, MS WORD, CAD files, DXF, etc.

Also the CELLS WORKFLOW Manufacturing Execution System can display any Internet or Intranet web site at any assembly step. For example the user can view internal HTML documents such as existing inspection procedures that reside on your company's intranet or display a part vendors specification sheet directly from the vendors web site or research data, etc. Use any of the literally hundreds of free or inexpensive tools with which to build your HTML documents (Microsoft Office(WORD, FrontPage, etc. or nearly any word processor). 

Data Collection and Reporting

Users scan or key in unit serial numbers in order to get the graphical display of the assembly. In so doing, unit serial number are automatically tracked as they move from station to station. Your technicians are probably writing on defect tags right now. With CELLS WORKFLOW Product Tracking Manufacturing Execution System Software, a convenient online form is just one keystroke away, already filled out with most of the required data. In most cases, the tech only needs to pick an exact defect code from a list of suggested codes for the current operation.

Once your work-in-progress, failure/quality or other data is in the CELLS WORKFLOW Product Tracking MES Software database, you can report against it with the existing reports available on the CELLS WORKFLOW MES Report menu. Or you can create reports with any report writer or analysis tool that supports ODBC (Crystal Reports, Access, SAS, Excel, etc.) ( CELLS WORKFLOW MES REPORTS ). You can even publish the reports to your CELLS WORKFLOW MES intranet or provide dynamic report generation through CELLS WORKFLOW Manufacturing Execution System or any web browser. For example over the internet your clients, vendors, QA or sales personnel can use their web browser to review current product tracking Order Status, Production Step Cycle Times, run reports on Quality Defects and Trends.  No need to gather status and quality data when your key clients request it, it's always available when they need it via secured password protection.
