Boost manufacturing lead time
Andon is an alert and reporting system for production lines.
Andon enables the operator to slow down or halt production if a problem is detected.
An alert begins a troubleshooting process and the necessary personnel are summoned to solve the issue at hand.
Curb production downtime with fast communication
Start solving the problem immediately
Andon sends an alert for example to the team supervisor to solve the problem on the production line. The alert can be given audiovisually or with SMS or email.
Push for shorter lead times
When a malfunction occurs, quick communication can reduce production downtime considerably. As repairs begin onsite, an entry is also made into Andon that the problem is being addressed.
Visual data supports management
Solved problems are documented to provide comprehensive data for further development of the production flow. Sharing visual information in the factory environment increases interaction and improves communication.

In addition to disruptions, the ARROW Andon info screens located in the production environment show how much has been accomplished of the day’s production target, as well as the number of occurred alerts. The screens also display a real-time indicator demonstrating the quality of assembly. Production managers document the reasons behind malfunctions into the Andon system by using predetermined reason codes.
