Nissan intelligence

Tuesday, 17 January, 2006


Nissan North America has chosen Proficy plant applications version 4.2 for an enterprise manufacturing intelligence (EMI) solution that will ultimately help Nissan reduce down time at its Smyrna, Tennessee and Canton, Mississippi manufacturing plants.

The Nissan installation, which includes the down time, scrap and reject tracking and reporting capabilities found within the efficiency and quality modules, resulted from a need to identify which processes were causing the most down time and where their bottlenecks were. The company was looking for a common solution to deploy at both its Smyrna and Canton facilities in all process areas including stamping, body, paint and assembly.

Proficy Plant Applications will allow Nissan to continue to leverage its existing technology investments. It currently employs hundreds of Proficy Cimplicity HMI stations, which are deployed across their North American plants. In addition, Proficy Tracker is used as the backbone for Nissan's MES-based integrated production management and control systems. The large application footprint also allows the IT staff to make use of critical down time fault codes, triggers and logic already in place.
