Andon is a visual / audible management system that shows the production condition in real time. It allows a machine or operator to call for support when an abnormality occurs.
When an abnormality or defect is detected the Andon is triggered.
Simultaneously, it is visualised at the process and at a large central board, showing which process has a concern.
Andon is a tool for all levels within the organisation, operators know their call will be heard and management know exactly where the problem is. The live status tracking gives an instant overview allowing decisions to be taken in real time to support the correct areas
