Nowadays, traditional industries must comply with a great deal of challenges and requirements such as high-tech, high-efficiency, sustainability and so on, making it very hard to succeed for those Wire & Cable industries which are reluctant to adapt to new technologies.
How to make good use of the resources in an efficient and flexible manner is going to be a key factor to decide whether a company is going to be competitive or not.

To fulfill that need, Pioneer Machinery brings three SmartFA models that help building digital flows for a traditional factory. 



Job Report


Digital flow is a key factor when talking about smart factories. The connection between OT and IT allows to fetch the information in a more effective manner, helping relevant personnel when it comes to decision making.
The Job Dispatch System comes with a highly customized design. It allows digital management systems to be applied to a cable manufacturer and successfully fulfill the goal of smart manufacturing. 


Cable manufacturing is sorted into different stages of continuous production processes, which can be complicated when scheduling and planning. Traditional job dispatch system may confront the following difficulties: 


Digital production order

Automatically create production orders by importing CSV files or databases of manufacturing management systems. Production managers can distribute these orders directly to the target machine via digital form.

Monitoring order status

Production order status can be easily fetched through the Job Dispatch System. Revision or redistribution of these orders can be easily done. All of the information of completed production orders can be conveniently checked on the system.

Data analytics and efficiency calculations

Linking production information with the manufacturing order allows the user to conveniently grab all these elements for further analysis. Additionally, the Job dispatch system can collect and organize data during the manufacturing process which can be helpful when generating reports.
Cooperating with the recipe system, production orders can be easily created by selecting the parameters from the system. Later on, these orders can be sent directly to the machines through digital flow. 




work force and time efficiency increase for task delivery.

  • Time and amount of person for task delivery by paper: 0.5 person/30 minutes

  • direct delivery to the machine without delay and no worker required.

decrease orders lost or corrupted

  • percentage of orders lost or corrupted by paper order 1-2 %
  •  ⇩
  • 0% by digital flow orders

of time saving on scheduling the order

  • For the scale of a factory with 20 lines, it takes around 60 minutes to collect all the data 

  • with the job dispatch system it only takes 5 minutes.

Introduction of recipe system

As data gets more and more important in the automation industry, storing and reusing the history parameters 

becomes key for success.

Parameter input issues

The adjustment of production parameters are related to a wide range of factors and sometimes it becomes nearly impossible to take every single one of them into consideration, so elasticity becomes much more important than it used to be. Traditional parameters setting might confront the following handicaps:

Recipe system features

Recipe system provides operators the ability to concentrately manage the production parameters, automatically writing in the parameters into the target machine from the database. Any parameters adjustment can overwrite the original parameters in the database and keep optimizing the process by updating parameters.

Digital flow saves time and cost

Production orders can be easily created by choosing the production parameters on the user interface and then delivering the whole package of recipes to the targeted machines.

Decrease the rate of error occurrence

By automatically filling in the parameters of each machine, the operators don’t need to enter the parameters by themselves, which effectively decreases the rate of occurrence of human errors.

Management in a concentrated and digital manner

The recipe system allows to store and manage parameters in a centralized and digital manner, conveniently accessible for those with authorization and with the highest level of security.

Parameters optimization

Recipe system allows operators with authority to overwrite the parameters in the database with the adjusted new parameters. Additionally, it could also feedback these new parameters to the technology development department for their reference and further analysis.




time decrease for parameters setting

  • 10-15 minutes ➟ 1-3 minutes

time decrease during production trial run

  • 30-90 MINUTES ➟ 10-30 MINUTES

decrease on human key-in errors

  • 3-5% ➟ <0.5%

Job Report features 

By presenting machine data in a visualized way, with more charts and forms, Job Report is able to output these results effectively and without any delay. Compared to the traditional paperwork, the Job Report system can do a great job on economizing time and decreasing the rate of occurrence of error. 

Improving traditional workflow with paper

Manufacturing workflow in the Wire & Cable industry is complicated as it takes more time to record every single detail with paper. With the Job Report system, a factory can record data in a more economical and efficient way.

Job Report is with traceability

Job report allows factories to be able to record every piece of information in the workflow. This information can be later on traced back and revisit whether there was a mistake or error that needs to be solved or if there is any improvement that can be done in their workflow.

Immediate and accurate data

With automatic data collection, the information can be gathered and organized into an exhaustive report in a short period of time. This way we could also avoid delays and errors during parameters keying in. 


Time of recording production data:

  • 10-30 minutes➟ Immediate recording in real-time

Time of making a report:

  • Immediate report generated in real-time

Reversibility of Job Report:

  • Using statistical methods find the correlation between parameters.

Fast integration modular

These types of models might not bring a direct benefit in terms of cost-saving or production capacity 

but they undoubtedly bring improvements to the entire workflow,

making a smart factory more efficient and smoother.


To implement digital flow, now, companies don’t need to spend a lot of money to

 replace their existing machines. All they have to do is to integrate Pioneer Smartbox to 

their equipment as an alternative solution.
