The road to Development

GAZETA PRAWNA, BUSINESS FORUM 25.10.2019

AFKOM is a thriver company in the information technology industry. On 24th September President Arkadiusz Figurny received the statuette of the Polish Innovation Award 2018 for new technologies and a proprietary OES system dedicated to the automobile industry.

Afkom is the winner of the Polish Innovation Award 2018. What is this distinction for you?
This is definitely a recognition of our entire effort, which we have put into the development of the company so far. The company has been operating for 5 years and therefore relatively young. Given this fact, for us it is an important and prestigious reward.

What were the biggest challenges, but also the biggest reasons to be proud during these five years?
The biggest challenge was to enter the international markets, because despite the knowledge of a foreign language, the language barrier is sometimes given in characters. If you speak English with people outside of Europe, it is always different than when you are in a relationship with Europeans. This is evidenced by cooperation with India, with which we jointly realize one of the major projects. Aside from this aspect, the biggest problem, however, is the time zone offset. The main thing is to communicate with business partners in India at the same time and to work here on the spot.

How does the company pursue its objectives under the AFKOM programme – the way to the 4.0 industry?
We strive primarily to be innovate all the time, we search for new solutions, we follow what is happening in the markets. We strive to develop solutions for companies that allow to enter the 4.0 industry.

Do you think that the target group of AFKOM in the future will expand? If so, what industries?
I think ultimately, every industry will strive towards the 4.0 industry. This is inevitable, because our neighbors, eg. From Germany, they go very hard in this direction. Poland to keep up with this trend will need to invest in solutions corresponding to the fourth industrial Revolution.

What are the company’s plans for the future?
Certainly further development, enlargement of the crew, expanding the markets. Today, everything is fixed dynamically. Each year brings a lot of changes.

How do you judge events such as the Polish Entrepreneurship Congress?
The Polish Entrepreneurship Congress is a very prestigious event. First of all, I appreciate the idea of discussion panels, establishing new business relationships or the fact that you can meet with a potential audience, see how other companies are pursuing their goals.

OES on the way to industry 4.0

GAZETA PRAWNA, FORUM PRZEDSIEBIORCZOŚCI, 01.10.2018

AFKOM has existed on the market for only a few years and has already been able to boast numerous successes in the international market. About the effects of global work and the author’s mobile application, says Arkadiusz Figurny – Chairman of the board.

What does AFKOM do?

It is a IT company. We specialize in software designed for manufacturing companies. More precisely, it is software that is supposed to support the production and logistics of enterprises. It is such a specific SOFTWARE, which is referred to MES systems. They both control production and report low-level data, e.g. Collect information about the movements of components in production, the composition of the product, the machines used for its creation, and the parameters that are recorded during the production process.

What are the branches of the company directing their services?

First of all to the automotive sector, but we also have a furniture industry among customers. There we track the flow of pallets and its control in a fully automatic system. Pallets are placed on the production buffer in which they are seasoned and thereafter transferred to the further machining process. The whole operation is controlled by our system.

What is the original AFKOM OES system?

In addition to these processes, it also supports quality control, where we collect parameter information. We are able to verify their correctness and also prepare statistics to ensure continuity of production.

The company also operates in foreign markets. How did this happen?

Our clients are mainly corporations. In the last project we installed the system in India. The Internet allows you to connect to any place in the world within the corporate network. This allows us to support any place on Earth. We performed all the work remotely, without having to go abroad. We have prepared appropriate installations on the server, we coordinated the work of programmers in India and today the system works. This is something we want to brag about, because as for such a small company, success in India is a big achievement for us.

What determiners must have a worker to get a job in your industry?

First of all, they are good specialists, fluent in English. They are also characterized by openness, not focusing on one thing, but a broad view of the various topics and willingness to develop. If we talk about people immediately after studying, they have a lot of theoretical knowledge, but they lack practice. Knowledge is passed in such a way that the theory of obscreation is a vision of practice. You have to spend some time later to train the employee. We provide training to prepare an employee directly under the necessary specialization.

What is the nomination for the Polish Innovation Award for you and the company?

It is a chance to develop and show up in a broader group of entrepreneurs. Getting to the client for small businesses is difficult. We strive to promote our solutions to industries that have contacts with manufacturing companies. The nomination is a distinction and a viable opportunity to acquire new corporations that will appreciate our actions.

Intelligent production Management

BUSINESS FORUM GAZETA PRAWNA 14.05.2018

Existing on the market for 5 years, the company AFKOM (Częstochowa), an Oracle partner, offers an innovative AFKOM OES system, supporting quality assurance in various branches of production, becoming a standard solution to the 4.0 technology. The solution is constantly evolving and new functionalities are being introduced into the market. The creator of this author's system is Arkadiusz Figurny, owner of the company.

AFKOM OES is a universal system of the MES class, which is used to control technological processes and material flow during production. It is the foundation on which you can build further solutions to create a smart industrial plant. The System can be used in companies of different sizes and allows remote control of production without the need for personal supervision (performance, deficiencies, inventories, negative events, etc.). The System can be placed on both enterprise and cloud servers.

A new element of the system is the AFKOM BLACKBOX device that allows you to quickly connect any, even the simplest machine to the system. This device enables interaction between the production line and the planner. Based on the order entered by the planner, the system can verify the correctness of the supplied components and machine tooling and allow the machine to start. Information about the realized production will be introduced to the system so that the planner can all the time observe the execution process of the order. The device can also collect data about the causes of downtime, machine failures, process parameters, and after adding the appropriate lamps placed over the packaging of components indicate the order of their installation.

The AFKOM OES System also provides the possibility of better segregation of defective products, the exchange of data between different systems in the same plant, as well as between different systems of the other supply chain companies. All data is recorded in the form of reports in a central enterprise database, which allows you to compare individual lines and also provide greater security and lower costs.

Zuzanna Pawełczyk

AFKOM supports production management

Interview with Arkadiusz Figurnym, owner of AFKOM, Business Monitor, 31 August 2016

AFKOM specializes in supporting management, especially in the context of the 4.0 industry concept or the fourth Industrial Revolution. What is it?

The so-called fourth Industrial Revolution is the dynamic development of new technologies. The solutions we propose are aimed at continuously optimising the functioning of businesses by gathering and processing information in real time. The idea is not only for mid-level management, but for companies and even customers to keep an insight into what’s going on in production lines.

Why is it so important?

Enabling the current flow of information provides the ability to quickly validate production processes and influence changes, and thus rapid elimination of errors. This system also allows for the implementation of short series.

What are the specific proposals for AFKOM?

We mainly deal with the creation and implementation of OES/MES/WMS/CMMS systems for manufacturing or logistics companies. They enable manual and automatic transport Management to be optimized for large data processing. Their performance and functionality can be matched to the size of the plant. The Web interface can be run on both the computer and the smartphone or tablet. The application is insensitive to sudden crashes of the computer or other device on which it is being browed.

AFKOM has a lot of successful projects and realization worldwide. What is the source of the company’s success?

We use the best information technology (Oracle, Microsoft, Siemens). We have a team with many years of experience in the development of systems and in the management of IT projects, creation and optimization of databases, programming of web, window, mobile and PLC applications. We have projects implemented in Germany, Spain, Romania, Portugal, India, China in automotive and furniture companies.

What is the most important “flagship” of your product?

Undoubtedly, it is our proprietary AFKOM OES (Operation execution System) system designed to support production, maintenance, quality management and inventory. Together with the Polish branch of Balluff we have prepared a model of the industrial line with a small robot consisting of cars made of wooden blocks. By accessing the system remotely from the customer’s panel you can choose the vehicle to be manufactured and then observe the course of its construction in the automatic factory, and in the system follow confirmation of the successive stages of production.

He spoke: Piotr Kamiński

AFKOM becomes a member of the Association of Entrepreneurs and Employers

We are pleased to poinoformować that AFKOM became a member of the Częstochowa branch of the Association of Entrepreneurs and employers. The Association of Entrepreneurs and Employers is an apolitical organization that operates for Polish entrepreneurs. It brings together supporters of free market and common sense, which depends on the fact that Polish companies have the best conditions for development. Membership in ZPP combines with a number of benefits: it increases the sense of security, provides knowledge of the ever-changing laws, enables faster business development. Importantly, against the background of other ZPP organizations it is distinguished that its activities are entirely targeted at micro, small and medium-sized businesses. The difference is also seen in activity and daily engagement, which translates into the number of projects implemented. From those with the biggest partners, such as the In the Google Project Internet Revolution, or on the portal Dobry.biz, through numerous trainings and seminars, up to lobbying activities for SMES, or information support in the form of special newsletters, newsletters, reports and publications. You can learn more about ZPP activity here: http://zpp.net.pl/and about the activities of Częstochowa branch here: http://zpp.czest.pl/

AFKOM OES-class system MES

System AFKOM OES (operation execution system) is a modular system designed to support the implementation of the operational tasks in the enterprise such as production, maintenance, quality management or inventory management. It includes such subsystems. MES (manufacturing execution System), WMS (warehouse management system), SCM (supply chain management) or CMMS (computerized maintenance management system).

OES system unlike the ERP system is not focused on the accounting of what is going on at the plant only on optimizing the processes that occur in it. According to the latest trends in accordance with the idea of industry 4.0 undertaking should:

  • have your digital model, which by it system will integrate with machines for the production of
  • the machine should be equipped with a communication interface, through which they will be able to submit information about their condition and carried out tasks
  • the machine should have the possibility to react on the fly to changing environmental conditions.

The concept of industry 4.0 assumes use of data coming from suppliers and customers at every stage of the production process. In practice, this means the creation of a fully integrated system, in which the history of the product and the information about its location and the current state will be available all the time, and the factory and warehouses will be able to exchange information in real time.

System AFKOM OES in carrying out these guidelines as standard allows bi-directional data exchange between your system and the machinery and the creation of models of production processes along with integration with other processes. It has no limitations when it comes to the amount of collected parameters relating to the production process. Document may be subject to both bit asserting for example. the fact that the closure of the housing of the product, washers, springs, clamping the nita, etc., as well as the discrete parameters such as strength, time, route, number of turns, etc.

This ensures that communication with machines is bi-directional, the machine will receive up to date data from the system, that allow you to specify how the product is to be produced, how many pieces have to be produced, what components are used in the construction of, or product that is to be currently subjected to has correctly made all technological operations. Integration with machines can be so large that you may not be able to run the machine without approval from the system. At the same time, the other way you can keep track of the degree of implementation of production orders, the speed of the flow components in warehouses within an integrated with areas of the plant. This allows you to get a detailed dynamic image of the plant at any time.

With the ability to create multi-tiered models of production processes it is possible to create processes, in which some stages are carried out in the initial installation or initial preparation components.

Flexible configuration of the production process to build universal machines that will be used in various production processes depending on the current customer orders. For example, you can. build a universal machine for the rolling chassis, that after replacing the equipment can produce different products. At the same time, the system is able to control the amount of screw screws for each type of product as well as you can control the appropriate placement of these screws and the corresponding parameters. So engineering provides a more optimal use of resources as well as gives you the ability to override the machines at the time of the failure of one of them.

Each of the products or the transport unit has on your logical identifier that can be changed dynamically depending on the availability of physical elements (labels printed, engraved, RFID). In one process, it is possible for example. assigning different IDs for the same product. You can define system-level data and the layout of the labels printed or engraved.

The system is able to integrate all the production lines and machines within a single server. This gives you the opportunity to central planning and monitoring on a regular basis the implementation of the plan for the whole plant. It is also possible to collect and report errors and quality information about the downtime and failures of machines throughout the facility.

System AFKOM OES allows you to manage inventory as well as the flow of materials. With the proper configuration, it is possible to supervise:

  • demand for components,
  • packaging for transport containers,
  • transport containers of the product to the warehouse,
  • segregation and placement of containers in stock
  • time of the seasoning of the product

The system allows the transportation management manual (forklift with an operator) and automatic (automatic fork-lift trucks, railway wagons or transporter system and wind).

System AFKOM OES is optimized to process large amounts of data. At the same time it is a scalable, whose performance and functionality can be adjusted to the size of the plant.

The system has a modern, scalable Web-based interface that can be run on both the computer and the Smartphone or tablet. This interface allows you to:

  • quickly jump between Windows system with an extensive menu structure and shortcuts
  • access to the standard and defined by the user or the Administrator reports
  • registration and preview of the full history of the modifications performed by the users at each window and system-wide
  • error log viewer
  • Preview the data before modification
  • exports the list of records to a csv file
  • Advanced filtering and sorting lists of records
  • formatting lists records (adding, deleting, grouping columns)
  • modifying data in lists of records in accordance with defined mathematical operations, logical, or text
  • verification of the correctness of the data at the level of the data edit form fields as well as at the level of the entire form
  • creating user menu
  • change your password access for each user
  • setting up users
  • administration of user rights at the level of groups
  • Central login to the system
  • control of authorised users within each window system
  • preparation of multilingual version
  • the configure alerts sent via e-mail or SMS

Thanks to the Web interface application is not vulnerable to the sudden failure of a computer, or other device that is being browsed. If the failure of the session is disconnected and it is possible to log in again with this device. If the server will be sent incomplete or incorrect data is followed by a revert. The new system updates uploaded to the server are available immediately to all users.

Time registration systems

Electronic time registration systems provide automatic registration of hours of entry and exit of employees. On this basis, provide up-to-date information about the presence and working time employed persons. In addition, eliminate paper roll. RCP systems are ideally suited for companies and institutions with variable opening hours start and end – where it is necessary to balance billing over longer periods of actual work with accepted standards.

Due to the complicated rules for the settlement of the moving of the working time of the RCP system significantly reduces the amount of time required for the conduct of the accounts. Time recording system can be simultaneously access control system simply connect it with magnetic locks the door. Read the Charter authorized person opens the door and is saved on RCP as input.

MES Systems

MES systems utilizing information technology, software, electronic equipment and automation components enable you to efficiently gather information in real time directly from the posts and their transfer to the business area. Information about the production can be downloaded directly from machines and with the participation of the employees directly. Thanks to the functionality of the system you can get instant feedback about the degree of implementation of the production, to take the appropriate decisions on the fly and react on the fly for irregularities occurring during the production process. Obtained data from the manufacturing process allow for analysis of the key performance indicators on the production and gain a true picture of the use of production capacity.

Common functionality of MES systems

  • tracking and visualization of the work in progress in real time
  • real time tracking and productivity of machines and people,
  • planned and unplanned downtime, downtime tracking and people
  • causes of unplanned downtime, registration,
  • registration causes downtime planned
  • planning the implementation of production orders and control of the implementation at the operational level,
  • update storage States materials, semi-finished products, finished products,
  • collection of information about the shortcomings and the quality of the manufactured parts,
  • data acquisition with technological process
  • the possibility of data exchange with drivers and visualization systems,
  • immediate notification of motives occurring during production,
  • generate automatic reports, detailed analysis of the information gathered,
  • the summary and the settlement of indirect costs and direct costs of production,
  • the ability to enter data automatically (the machine) and manual (man),
  • tracking the movement of products, genealogy of the production,
  • scheduling maintenance and repairs,
  • Optional data exchange with MRP/ERP-class systems at the level of "vertical",
  • Optionally works with class CMMS at the level of "horizontal".

The benefits of the implementation of the system of

  • increase in productivity
  • increase in OEE
  • shorten production cycle
  • reduction in production costs
  • to improve the visualization of the work in progress
  • reduce unplanned downtime and planned downtime
  • the improvement of the production quality
  • increase the degree of capacity utilization
