The primary function of an Andon system is to keep all the relevant parties informed of the status of manufacturing so they can make better and faster decisions, which in turn will improve plant efficiency, profit margins, and product quality. It makes sense that the better an Andon system is at accomplishing those goals, the better a factory can operate. The key is choosing an Andon system that goes well beyond the original pull-cord design to one that incorporates and interprets the mountains of data collected in a modern manufacturing environment. And the best Andon systems should also be able to communicate with everyone involved in the manufacturing process, from line workers to engineers to the businesspeople in the back office.
Leidos Broadcast is an Andon system designed to do just that.
