SPEDE Manufacturing Solutions use Poka Yoke methods to automate and error-proof production area processes, and create traceability of parts as they move from raw through production to shipping. You can choose functionality on a per-line or a per-site basis, and add more at any time.

SPEDE automated solutions are designed to control quality, increase efficiency and provide 20/20 visibility into your operations. Error-proofing functions include:
QC Hold Processes include:
Interfacing to a production machine's PLC allows for reading the PLC's stored data, and providing HMI synchronization for redundant part verification. The SPEDE PLC Interfaces include read/writes to:
SPEDE Component Traceability tracks purchased and internally produced component lots through processing and assembly, and ties the End Item Lot to all lots involved upstream. It allows for a single container to have multiple lot codes, as when partial containers are combined. You can use a handheld or vehicle-mount scanner to:
WIP Operations Traceability controls and tracks the flow of serialized WIP containers to ensure the correct sequencing of operations is followed. SPEDE checks the correctness at issue to prevent sequencing errors. For easier tracking, the same serial number can be used throughout each operation when possible.
Vision sensors can be installed at the end of production and in packing areas to prevent errors in identifying, counting and packing parts.
SPEDE vision solutions include functions for:
SPEDE Labeling solutions use input from PLCs, scales, vision and/or USB cameras at packing areas to ensure the part number and pack count are correct before triggering a container label to print.
Weigh scales can be interfaced to PLCs to count parts by weight, and/or at the packaging line to calculate the number of parts being packed into a container.
When the total count of parts, based on individual piece weight and an allowance for tare weight is correct, a container label will automatically print.
Your operators can view and monitor the real-time completion status of today's releases, in order to know which parts to build to meet today's schedules.
A red/ yellow/ green status code indicates whether more parts are needed, or if it's time for a changeover for the next part.
To validate the correctness of parts, and prevent errors in packaging, inexpensive USB cameras can ensure that all slots in a layer of a shipping container have been filled correctly before allowing the operator to proceed to the next layer.
Optional video of each filled layer can provide proof that the container was packed to the customer's requirements, should a question arise later.
A SQL Server PC on your WiFi or wired network runs the SPEDE Apps to interface to production machine PLCs, Line-side PCs, Vision Sensors, weigh scales, conveyors, cameras, OCR and your host ERP, EDI and OEE systems.
A small Bluetooth Beacon can be attached to WIP containers of parts to automatically record their movement. When a container movement is detected, the Beacon transmits its ID to SPEDE and the SPEDE Locator App is updated.
A small Bluetooth Beacon can be attached to large singular items such as steel coils, to automatically record their movement. The Beacon wakes up and transmits its ID to SPEDE when coil movement is detected, and the SPEDE Locator App is updated.
