Manufacturing Workflows

Anark Core allows manufacturers to associate technical content such as technical data packages (TDP) or digital work instructions (DWI) with manufacturing operations and quality characteristics, together with activities-based collaboration for operational problem solving.  Interactive procedures and work instruction content can be authored by subject matter experts, or published from documents generated from other tools.

Context for Work Orders

Work orders and associated quality plans often lack cohesion between the overarching process and the operational context needed on the factory floor.  Anark Core brings easy-to-understand operational context to manufacturing processes, with support for mobile and wearable devices.

360 Collaboration

Connect cross-functional teams to solve problems and improve quality with easy-to-use, social-media-style collaboration, with graphical mark-up and user-uploaded content.  Traditionally siloed functional areas can collaborate with technical data, substantially improving product and services outcomes.

Collect Quality Information

Anark Core can collect quality information from the factory floor in the correct technical context, assuring that the intent of a quality plan is understood.  Bills of characteristics can be populated in-context with content that includes drawings, schematics, photos, videos, or 3D data.

Digital Thread for Manufacturing

Solve production-delaying problems by connecting a technical-content-rich Digital Thread between design, planning, production, and quality functional areas.

Benefits for Manufacturing

  • Provides mobile access to rev-controlled technical data packages and quality characteristics on the factory floor, with support for printing when needed,
  • Allows manufacturing quality information to be collected in context with TDP and DWI content, for operational clarity,
  • Facilitates operational problem solving through collaboration with TDP and user-uploaded content such as photos from the factory floor, and
  • Allows IOT data to be presented in context with 2D and 3D digital twin content, for example from tooling or test equipment.
