Andon display is a visual representation of daily operations that shows where the action is needed. It is recognized as the most effective intercommunication tool because it helps the process to operate smoothly without any major hurdles or inefficiencies. It helps to build communication between workers and the development team with a combined system of digital signage on the production floor, andon lights, and email alerts.
Features of Andon display system in Manufacturing
It identifies the problematic area in the production house.
Product Name running on production can be displayed.
Machine’s status such as Running/Stopped/No plan can be displayed.
Production count can be displayed.
Real-time production targets and Real-time production achieved can be indicated through boards and displays.

Andon display system enables employees to notify key decision-makers about manufacturing problems so that effective corrective action can be taken. It improves the flow of information in case of problems and also improves product quality and better continuous opportunities.
Real-time machine status
MTTR (Mean Time To Repair)
An MTTR is a maintenance metric that measures the average time required to troubleshoot and repair failed equipment.
MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures)
Measuring MTBF is one way to learn more about a failure and minimize its effects. An MTBF review aids the maintenance team in reducing downtime, saving money, and operating more efficiently.
Real-time reporting keeps you informed of what’s been produced, what has not been produced, and the overall efficiency of your machines.
Live Machine Status
It allows you to connect every machine to see and understand how your entire shop floor is performing.
Andon is the easiest way to prevent unplanned downtime.
