Paced flow with takt time counter in Boards on Fire

Our solution for paced flow (or takt time flow) is very easy to get started with. The core is the takt time dashboard with the takt time counter showing the countdown on the current pace. There you also see the set takt time, registered downtime and clear color signals for the status in the production line. Green for ok, yellow for problems, and red for stops. Blue color is displayed during planned breaks.

Boards on Fire is a cloud service that you can use on virtually any internet-connected device that has a web browser. You can visualize the takt clock on large screens or smart TVs in production, but also log in on the computer, tablet or mobile.

Schedule for shifts and takt time

You easily input takt time and weekly schedule for production time day by day, with shifts, breaks and other planned pauses that control when and how your paced flow should run.

Log disturbances and downtime

You can easily register, categorize and comment on disturbances and stops for different stations in the production line. All information is logged and saved in Boards on Fire for further follow-up. Registration of downtime and disturbances can also be used as a standalone solution without running takt time flow.

Advantages of paced flow in production

Using paced flow within the manufacturing industry can have several advantages that together contribute to a better and more cost-effective production process:

  1. Improved efficiency: By synchronizing the production speed with customer demand, both overproduction and underproduction are minimized. This can improve efficiency across the entire production chain.
  2. Reduced waste: Paced flow minimizes inventory and storage time, which in turn reduces costs and resource waste. Additionally, it decreases the risk of damage to products stored for extended periods.
  3. Balanced workload: By ensuring that each step in the production process is in pace with the others, a balanced workload can be maintained and bottlenecks can be prevented.
  4. Improved quality control: Paced flow makes it easier to detect problems at an early stage, which can improve quality control and reduce costs for corrections or recalls.
  5. Predictability: Paced flow can provide more predictability in the production process, making it easier to plan and schedule work.
  6. Customer satisfaction: By matching the production speed with customer demand, companies can ensure that they can meet customer needs in a timely manner, which can lead to increased customer satisfaction.
