Production data acquisition
TEXPRO uses the very latest automation and information technology to allow laundries to raise the efficiency of their equipment, safeguard quality and react quickly to market developments. To do so, they need a standalone production data acquisition system that provides them with key performance indicators on their operations.

TEXPRO production data acquisition gathers key performance data on current processes. To provide you with evaluations and analyses that are truly meaningful, the system records all readings and measurements and looks back at historical process data. All figures relating to processes and operating systems are then recorded directly for each cost centre or forwarded through a connected interface. This saves time and dovetails neatly with data sharing.

All operators working on machines log into a particular cost centre. This is to ensure that all working hours are captured and there are no data gaps. It also provides managers with meaningful staffing overviews. This makes it easy to rectify a situation if a particular cost centre is under- or over-resourced with staff. For a more detailed staff planning option, you can even view the effectiveness of individuals across a variety of cost centres and at different times of day.

Since TEXPRO allows you to match volumes or readings to a specific member of staff or cost centre, you can assess specific performance levels in real time. Also, thanks to features like actual volume logging it’s much easier to identify the causes of malfunctions or system weaknesses. All incidents can be stored and recorded over time under a particular cost centre. This can even include the reason for a malfunction and, if required, what measures were taken to deal with it. Bottom line:your product quality is safeguarded.

Production planning and control
The production planning and control module helps keep operations more transparent. So you can go beyond merely optimising machine processes and maximising output – you can be sure your human resources are being used as efficiently as possible.

All performance data can be displayed clearly and concisely – and it’s always up-to-date. The system provides insights and pointers on the performance of operating materials and employees from any location at any time. Set up minimum performance levels and TEXPRO will automatically alert you with email notifications. 

You can provide staff with a bonus by capturing working hours and storing data on production volumes. The system allows you to set up measurements for group or individual performance. You can also lay down targets and record actuals. This helps you capture any working hours that are eligible for a bonus and this can be linked to individual hourly wages and staff bonuses.

One of the biggest challenges in business is that suppliers are expected to meet the demands of their clients, so they need to provide a broad spectrum of products and they have to remain flexible – but at the same time their production has to be economically viable. The production planning and control features offered by TEXPRO provide you with new ways of optimising use of existing machines and resources. It quickly pinpoints weaknesses in production processes and helps you eradicate these weaknesses. Every single order can be tracked seamlessly and you can query the status of operations for any customer job or even map service routes.

Sudden and unexpected changes in daily laundry plans – who hasn’t had this happen to them? TEXPRO records all key data, so you have a complete overview of all processes at any given time. This makes it easy for you to quickly make changes in production and reschedule the rest of a daily plan. By fine-tuning sequences, you can significantly reduce the time needed to change setups or processes. You can also enjoy considerable savings in terms of staff requirements or storage levels. You can even optimise ad-hoc customer jobs and include them in new plans.

With TEXPRO you can generate individual daily laundry plans. These define the precise number and sequence of each customer job. Fixed plans made in advance for a specific batch or laundry job provide the basis for any subsequent processing steps. The system automatically activates or deactivates records for each cost centre. By scanning order slips or laundry trolleys, or if necessary entering each cost centre manually, all production jobs can be tracked throughout the entire production cycle, right from the original customer order through to delivery. The system lets you set up individual notifications for each production job or cost centre –a significant benefit when it comes to quality assurance. If items are being counted, delivery volumes can be recorded specifically for each cost centre. TIKOS then also takes care of issuing delivery notes.
