Roles Precision is continuing to benefit from its investment in the Redant production-control system.

Mark Jenkins, the managing director, evaluated the systems market and chose Redant for its rich functionality, covering all areas of the business.

The Redant system carries numerous threads of quality-control functionality such as contract review, concessions, non-conformance procedures and reporting, equipment calibration, inspection procedures and full lot traceability.

These functions have helped Roles to achieve the ISO 9001 accreditation, essential for the quality standards demanded by its high-profile customers.

Now that the basic system modules have been implemented and the benefits are flowing, the next stage is about to commence.

This will consist of the finite scheduling and shop-floor data-collection modules.

The integrated touch-screen data-collection and time and attendance system will provide a dual function for time and attendance recording and basic HR records of all employees and a real-time job time recording system on the shop floor.

However, the Redant data-collection system goes further than just collecting labour bookings.

In essence it is a manufacturing execution system (MES) providing shop-floor supervisors and operatives with views of work schedules, jobs, routes and even drawings.

The finite scheduling module, which will benefit from receiving timely and accurate job bookings, will then provide Roles with a flexible ‘visual planning board’ where various ‘what if?’ scenarios can be played out to enable the optimum planning schedule to be determined within the finite resources available.
