Video: Stay in Control of Your Crops with ATS CropIT
ATS is introducing ATS CropIT, the Manufacturing Execution System / Manufacturing Operations Management (MES/MOM) for complete traceability from seed drilling through to packing.
Know What You Grow
Growing and harvesting crops isn’t an exact science and you can’t always predict how things are going to turn out.
What you need is a solution that can adapt to changing circumstances and keep you in control every step of the way. This is where ATS CropIT comes in.
Create Field Plans & Monitor Seed Drilling
It starts by letting you build field plans so that you know where your crops will be.
Then, when you start to sow the fields you can record which batch of seed was used in each location.
Record Crop Treatments and Soil Treatments
You can even record the type and quantity of any crop treatments and soil treatments used.
Test Equipment Integration
As your crops start to grow you can track their growth in the system and the results of quality tests and weather observations can be recorded directly from test equipment.
Resource Planning Support
When it’s time to harvest ATS CropIT keeps you in control and the clock starts as soon as the produce is picked.
Each vehicle is tracked so that you know where it is, when it’ll arrive at the plant and approximately how much produce it’ll deliver, allowing you to better plan your resources.
Weighbridge Integration & Production Line Allocation
Once a vehicle arrives at the plant further quality control checks are carried out and recorded in ATS CropIT which then decides if the goods can be received.
It allocates the most appropriate production line and records the vehicle weight before and after unloading so that you have a more accurate quantity estimate for the produce.
An MES Solution
MES solutions enable flawless manufacturing processes by providing a single source for your manufacturing data and enabling real-time updates when requirements change.
And with data integrated across multiple sites, with more space in the warehouse, with production plans being more closely adhered to and with the “right first time” of every product being improved, everybody benefits, from the production line to the board room to the customer.
With the ATS CropIT solution you have complete traceability from seed drilling through to packing.
And with the powerful reporting and analysis you can feedback improvements and reap the benefits of all of your collected data.
