Paints, varnishes, pigments and enamel industry is gaining ground at a speedy pace in contemporary time accompanied with closed advance in surface coating technology. A plurality of data displays connected to mentioned paint approach control data structure for remotely receiving and viewing said interrelated paint approach manage data. In order to acquire product information sheets, a buyer invokes approach block 404 by preferably clicking on an icon on the screen of the data destination remote internet site for a particular paint-related product.
The information acquired by blocks 74, 78, 88 and 98 all reside within the computerized virtual paint manufacturing and application method 120 which structures the information so that an general system point of view can be obtained as well as by supplying an atmosphere for entities to remotely view the information captured by the present invention. Procedure manage coordinator 162 creates and maintains the course of action manage information structure template 353 during the information acquisition measures from every single data supply.
The procedure methods which are to be interrelated with the equipment, approach, excellent backward, people, economy, and agreement modules of the paint manufacturing information structure 152 are the following: material receipt, material storage, staging of materials, equipment preparation, raw material transfer, intermediate processing, batch blending, batch adjustment, filling procedure, equipment cleaning method, solution storage, and product delivery to the automobile assembly plant.
The key input components described by the paint manufacturing information structure 152 are the resins that are the solutions of the resin manufacturing information structure 148 and external raw supplies (such as, for example, pigments the external raw supplies are shown by reference numeral 62 on FIG. Paint simulation computer plan 248 has as one of its purposes the capability of identifying regions within the mathematical models that want to be greater defined. For instance, the data that is acquired from paint manufacturing factory 136 is preferably placed into a computer that is situated at the paint manufacturing factory 136.
In accordance with the teachings of the present invention, a laptop-implemented apparatus and approach are provided for coordinating paint-associated procedure measures of at least 1 paint-associated facility. Technical database 172, in its preferred embodiment, contains such information as paint solution portfolio details 270, ecology facts 272, communication data 274, and excellent details 276 (such as 1st run capability). The ultimate objective of the all round method is to apply manufactured paint onto a automobile 50 within predefined tolerances. At course of action block 440, a customer detects a challenge occurring in a buyer assembly plant.
