Cast Resin Transformers

Process Synchronization through Optimal, Sequential Scheduling

The greatest challenge in transformer production is synchronizing processes with each other, including core cutting, core assembly, high voltage winding, low voltage winding, cast resin process, final-assembly, and function testing.

  • High level of process synchronization
  • Minimized lead times and inventory stock
  • Flawless delivery reliability
  • Reduced time and effort needed for planning

Challenges

You need to schedule every process, from core assembly, primary and secondary coil windings, resin casting, and others, in order that processes are completed exactly when needed for final assembly, minimizing work-ion-process inventory (and likewise searching and waiting), even when there are many open orders at once.

Different specifications, including use of limited resources such as ovens and test bays, need to be accounted for, and the optimal processes automatically selected based on order specifications.

When rush orders or changes come in, or when there is a disruption on the shop floor, it can be challenging and time consuming to update the schedule for every process after the change. Asprova can create a new schedule in seconds whenever new information comes in, providing immediate visibility of the impact of new orders or machine breakdowns.
