Electronical Method Sheet software for generating Method Sheets on organized production process
Set up an Orderly Production Process
Generating Method Sheets on organized production process are done manually by printing and marking or at best by third side software like Visio.
Proventus' eMethodSheet is a highly sophisticated method sheet tool that provides rich functionality based on up-to-date PLM/ERP data for generating Method Sheets easily.
Step by Step Production
Constant product line requires process with step by step style. To organize that process, you must generate Method Sheets for each step. Today, Method Sheets are done manually by third side software like Visio. Manually solution has 2 main problems: (1) Method Sheets aren’t up-to-date; (2) Maintenance.
Built using latest programming tools (Microsoft .Net C#), graphical techniques (OpenGL), and database engine (Microsoft SQL Server), eMethodSheet provides a rich set of functions for generating Method Sheets based on up-to-date PLM data:
Dynamic Display of PCB includes zoom, rotate and etc.
Showing component information by mouse over
Adding mechanical components over PCB
Setting operation and remarks for electrical and mechanical components
Managing many configurations on same catalog number and revision
Printing Method Sheets as hard copy
Comparing revisions with PLM
CAD Format Support
Proventus eMethodSheet supports most leading CAD formats including Mentor, Veribest, PADS, Cadence, PCAD, Fabmaster, GenCAD, ODB++, IPC and other as a built in feature.
BOM File Import
Proventus eMethodSheet supports synchronizing catalog numbers according to imported BOM files. This feature enables the user to update the displayed catalog numbers with the last BOM.
Our solution includes a viewing module for production lines:
- Paperless - you don't need to print
- Enables dynamic data viewing - clik and view instructions
- Each station in the process receives only its data
- Changes / revisions in editing methodsheet is displayed automatically
- Support for touch screen
