Web-based, multi-lingual manufacturing execution system4.1/5 (14 Bewertungen)
V5 MES is a cloud-based Manufacturing Execution System (MES) / Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) software designed to control, monitor and error-proof manufacturing operations. Available in multiple languages, PINpoint helps small-large sized discrete manufacturers optimize their assembly line.
V5 MES 'controls' and 'monitors' manufacturing assembly line processes for unrivaled product defect detection and mistake-proofing. The software allows manufacturers to effectively make the transition from traditional paper-based or manual process production tracking, to paperless manufacturing and Industry 4.0 standards starting with the digitization of plant floor communications, product tracking and manufacturing reporting (Andon system software app).
The turn-key solution features paperless manufacturing execution, production scheduling, product tracking or product life cycle management (PLM), quality management, business intelligence, and manufacturing intelligence; including live cycle time and Takt time reporting, with a real-time goal planned actual and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) performance 'Dashboard' website manufacturing stakeholders can access from the cloud using any wireless device.
V5 MES software helps manufacturers to detect product assembly errors as they happen to ensure defective products are never shipped (quality increases). The software also helps the manufacturer to identify and measure cycle time bottlenecks in order to make the specific changes required to improve the efficiency of the assembly line (waste reduced).
The software is highly configurable and PINpoint team helped us building our skills to manage it ourself. It provide a lot of functionnalities that can be implemented gradually. Our most used funtionnalities are torque tool control, PLC interface, check lists, quality alerts, andon system with process interlock. The software has proven to be reliable with a very low downtime and when we exceptionally face a critical issue, PINpoint team have been very reactive to handle it and provide a solution. Reporting capabilities greatly improved with last version and it helps to identify process weakness that need to be addressed to improve our productivity.
Corrections of minor issues are sometimes very long to come and the major upgrades are complexe and can cause some issues.

PINpoint V5 MES and V5 ANDON can be configured on-the-fly from the Cloud in a website on any device, ensuring your continuous improvement initiatives are ongoing so that product quality and assembly efficiency are always maximized.
This software is great for collecting and storing critical data from assembly lines. You are able to connect many different devices to it like: DC tools, scales, badge readers, scanners, wireless gages, PLC's, and so on. The company is always evolving as well, trying to improve their processes for their customers. They also have very good customer support.
I don't have anything negative about this software to say at this time. The biggest "Con" that I see are people who want to use the software, but do not take the time to learn how it works. Instead, they will copy programs and guess on certain areas. But, this issue has nothing to do with the software itself.
Thank You Jason for being a such a steadfast user of PINpoint software - your experience corresponds with all the users across the World who also work in PINpoint everyday in different languages to build a variety of complicated products.
In addition to PINpoint's powerful error-proofing features and benefits, and its ability to monitor and control the assembly line, PINpoint's latest Version 5.0 products represent our most value-added manufacturing execution system (MES), and Andon system software to date; with an industry leading short return on investment (ROI) payback in only a couple/few months.
PINpoint V5 provides users the plant floor management tool-set they need to really impact product quality and assembly line efficiency. Contact us to see a live demo of the new performance "Dashboard" app, featuring up-to-the-millisecond overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) live-streamed reports right to your tablet/Smartphone from the cloud, i.e. real-time manufacturing intel.
Error proofing & assembly build accuracy as well as historical build validation.
Ease of use, visual queuing, multi-lingual, mature interfacing ability with controllers, tools & print functions.
There are occasions where software needs to be able to account for network activity and other anomalies and respond in a way that is self-adjusting. (But, as these issues arise they are able to accommodate). We have had to do some database tuning to optimize the DB transactions.
Thank you Peter, we appreciate you sharing feedback about your experience with PINpoint's manufacturing execution system. Now available in Version 5 (released 2018), the latest software is even more flexible and scalable than ever to service the needs of all small sized manufacturers [1(+) workstation(s)] to large/enterprise manufacturers [unlimited users, any location].
V5 is the ideal first-step in the transition to Industry 4.0 methodologies and a paperless manufacturing strategy; by first solving the issues that impact profitability, i.e. can you manufacture Quality products Efficiently?
We've further improved the Manufacturing Intelligence capabilities in the latest V5 MES & V5 ANDON products to include a live-stream of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) metrics right to your phone/tablet. The assembly line performance "Dashboard" app is an essential tool to discover cycle/Takt time bottlenecks which otherwise would go unnoticed. Please contact us to learn more about V5.
Mainly the traceability of serial number data and conformity to the assembly process.
The amount of data captured was extremely large. Good for capturing measurement data and torque data. Very good tracability.
Sorting through the data was not as easy as earlier versions. Older hardware devices remained within the database and was a pain to delete forever.
Thank you for your feedback Barry, and for providing insight into your experience with PINpoint over 7 years. The software continues to be evolved in 2018 to play an integral role in the small-medium/large-enterprise size manufacturer's transition to paperless manufacturing and Industry 4.0 methodologies.
PINpoint V5.0 now features 2 powerful manufacturing intelligence apps called 'Dashboard' and 'Production Analytics'. The Dashboard live-streams your assembly line's performance (OEE) right to your phone. Production Analytics allows for 'Cube' database searches in the Factory's server - it comes pre-installed with manufacturing reports you can customize and output from PINpoint or Microsoft Excel daily.
With PINpoint the manufacturer is always in the know of the info they need to improve their manufacturing processes; in order to maximize error-proofing and production output, i.e. increase quality and efficiency. Please don't hesitate to contact us to schedule your demo of V5!
Strong Process Control with GUI level read across station to station. Tools can be set up in the library that can be used by Process Engineers to manage their process without needing Controls Engineering input and help in most cases.
Requires increased skill sets in each group working with it but on the positive side easily managed. The application does require a new approach to managing process control. It is not the traditional PLC layer control system. That is not a bad thing, just requires a commitment to move forward with new technology that provides a new set of functional benefits that cant be achieved in traditional PLC layer.
Thank You for your review and we agree that the process control capabilities of the PINpoint MES (out-of-the-box) sets our software apart from the competitors. With the ability to control both the human and machine aspects of the assembly line, and the capability to turn off tools and devices and even stop the assembly line, ensures that defective products never get shipped to the customer!
We've made the new PINpoint V5 even more easy to use and interpret by utilizing the latest data visualization methods including situational awareness graphics, animations, and videos.
V5 MES and V5 ANDON also now include our "Dashboard" app which is a powerful overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) reporting tool. Now you can know exactly how your factory is performing from a website live-streamed from the Cloud.
We've made the new PINpoint V5 accessible to any manufacturer small or large and regardless of location. V5 is the ideal first-step in your transition to Industry 4.0 methodologies.
