Consistent collecting and evaluation of shop floor data

If you want to make your production fit for the future, you should record shop floor data. Besides classic data such as order times, quantities and status messages, this also includes simple quality data such as yield or scrap as well as personal time recording. HYDRA BDE by MPDV clearly offers more functions and benefits than a classic stand-alone BDE system.

For example, HYDRA can be used to collect order-related information. The aim is to support the production process with digital information and to monitor actual data such as order progress in real time. At the same time, HYDRA BDE with its diverse evaluations and KPIs provides the basis for the entire production control system. HYDRA also supports an improved cost accounting and post-calculation process in the ERP based on actual data. Furthermore, controlling teams benefit from the increased transparency and the fact that KPIs are calculated in a reproducible manner.

Addition to the ERP system

HYDRA BDE adds to the functions of an ERP system that manages all customer orders. A modern BDE system such as HYDRA BDE supports departments close to production to collect order and article-related data according to their own specifications and to plan and organize production processes. HYDRA BDE collects data, evaluates the data and then creates statistics with the supplied information. This allows problems in the production process to be identified and eliminated earlier.

HYDRA BDE supports the production control using simple functions for sequence planning and the resulting reports for connected areas. HYDRA BDE allows supervisors and shift managers to keep track of current orders and work processes and to view and evaluate the progress of past shifts. Users can call different evaluations at all times. As is customary with modern software systems, HYDRA BDE also has flexible administration and editing functions to create or import master data and to correct collected data if necessary.
