NUCLEAR

IMPROVING NUCLEAR FACILITIES’ MANUFACTURING CONTROL

INTRODUCTION

Meeting the needs of tightly regulated manufacturers.

From auditable procedural controls and reporting requirements to thorough procedures for producing and managing nuclear devices and facilities, manufacturers in this industry face daily challenges in reaching their goals and objectives.

 

Benefits of Solumina for Nuclear

Extensive Regulatory Compliance

Support for ISO, ASME, NRC and NUPIC regulatory standards with configurable, real-time workflows. The manufacturing process ought to embrace quality during the entire process flow, starting early in the process design phase instead of relegated to a verification step at the end.

360 Degree View

Solumina provides an all-around view of product and process compliance and quality management at the plant, product and workflow level using a single system of record. This provides nuclear equipment manufacturers with a reliable, secure and scalable system that streamlines the flow of information between engineering and shop floor, improving production efficiency and meeting regulatory compliance requirements at the same time.

Intuitive & Easily Modifiable

Solumina’s work instructions can provide 2D and 3D images to ensure greater accuracy and compliance on the shop floor that are updated in real-time, ensuring the synchronization of all activity on a production floor, delivering the highest quality products as a result.

Keep Production on Schedule

Solumina’s production control information board keeps production on schedule and focused on compliance and quality. This board – which can be customized to show any view of the work areas, including unit, areas, or department orders and operations – will display all pertinent information to ensure smooth production. Shop supervisors and production schedulers will be able to take advantage of this board as well to view valuable information – such as order statuses, scheduled start and stop times and crews assigned – to make most efficient use of production cycles. Minor adjustments to schedules can quickly and easily be made in real time from these screens, keeping the shop floor engaged and on schedule.

How BAE Systems Implemented a People First MES

SOLUMINA MANAGEMENT, MES IMPLEMENTATION SUCCESS STORY

 

Follow BAE Systems as they quickly learned the importance of capturing the necessary engagement across functions within the project lifecycle, from the generation of requirements to scenario testing and gap identification, to training and post go-live support in order to successfully roll out Solumina.

The Journey to a Paperless Shop Floor Pays Off for General Dynamics AIS

SOLUMINA QUALITY, MES SYSTEM SUCCESS STORY

 

The production facility went from a highly paper-based and manually controlled process to one where the manufacturing and quality management system, Solumina, is the focal point for building hardware.

How Cirrus Aircraft Leverages Solumina

MANUFACTURING EXECUTION SYSTEM SUCCESS STORY

 

Cirrus Aircraft worked closely with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to achieve certification for the Vision Jet, using Solumina MES in place of part piece level conformity. Going digital was a big part of the certification process transformation for Cirrus.

The Future of Automation, Part II

July 31, 2019
In this blog, AR becomes the topic of discussion. AR is no longer a distant, sci-fi dream. This technology is already flooding onto the shop floor and into field service. It overlays virtual objects on top of the real world to aid the user in terms of understanding, perception or action.

The Future of Automation, Part I

July 26, 2019
Human-centered engineering models are labor intensive and require constant verification, rework and re-keying. By adding digitization and AI into the mix, it is possible to transform the old model into an automated system that facilitates continuous operational learning and productivity gains that exceed existing approaches.

A New Era for Space Exploration

July 16, 2019
The closure of the U.S. Space Shuttle program in 2011 seemed like the end of an era. Yet since then, the sector has experienced a renaissance. A major stepping stone to the achievement of this goal is the Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway. The Lunar Gateway will function as a lunar-orbit space station, a solar-powered communications hub, science laboratory, short-term habitation module, and holding area for rovers and other craft.
