Takt- and Andon watchArt.nr: 54445
Utilising a Takt and Andon clock allows you to follow the production status in real time. The desired function is easily inputted through the LP222 button box, after which the system is up and running and tracking adherence to production planning. Producing faster than planned is indicated with green numbers, and if you are producing below the expected rate, it is indicated with red numbers. The clock can be paused with a BREAK button during, for example, break time. In the event of production disturbance, the Andon button is pressed, which causes a short alarm signal to ring and the display shows the text “ANDON” and how long you have experienced the disturbance.
Displaying clear goals and losses in real time, leads to discussions about production improvement and optimisation. Takt and Andon are the cornerstones of Lean Manufacturing and ensure rapidly increased productivity.
