Manufacturing Execution System Aluminium
MES-AL casthouse and foundry management software solution is built on years of operational experience in the aluminium industry. Casthouse and foundry operation is frequently operated as a group of autonomous processes with limited or no communication between them. MES-AL provides mission-critical information about production activities across the enterprise and supply chain via bi-directional communications. Providing management and operators with correct information at right time.
As industries are moving towards the Forth Industrial Revolution, sometimes referred to as Industry 4.0 the need for dedicated manufacturing execution system like MES-AL is growing. MES-AL supports connection to ERP systems and cloud-based solution as well as locally based.
All production is based on productions alloys that are derived from customer alloy specifications. Chemical composition deviations within customer specification are highlighted for each batch and product. When product is ready CoA (Certificate of Analysis) according to EN-10204 is automatically generated.
Focus on sustainability requires optimising the use of worst-case scenario raw materials to keep high recycling ratio and minimising the usages of expensive alloying material. At the same time, the process must deliver quality products. MES-AL has the capability to support this process, raw- and alloying material consumption is registered, and unwanted actions are identified and avoided. These actions improve quality and lower the operational cost.
Work orders are loaded per furnace, batching cycle time is based on predefined standardised work for alloy-product. Detailed information for each process step is included. Graphical overview of actual chemical composition, internal and external composition limits and alloying targets.
When integrated with quality management and process control, changes to specifications, recipes or standardised work procedures are automatically communicated through a paperless system. There are no “old” paper copies that can result in a safety hazard, lost time, or waste. There is a full system traceability, as all actions and changes are logged in the MES-AL system.
In addition to the MES-AL system, Al-Genius provides consulting services to the aluminium industry. Core focus is on value added production, project management, continuous improvement, supply chain management and use of industrial data to support management decisions.
Projects worked on include the entire spectrum of products, sheet ingots, extrusion ingots (billets), and foundry alloys. As well the whole project lifecycle from feasibility studies, design, equipment selection, installation, operational readiness, commissioning, and operation.
