real time dispatch


 If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you’ve always got. 

Henry Ford

If you are a Discrete Manufacturer with complex work flows or a Semiconductor Fabricator then real-time demand-pull dispatching has been out of reach for you, until now. 

Introducing Vortex™ by Equation1.  Read the Common Use Cases below to discover how Vortex™ can work for you.

It's about time!

Common Use Cases

Discrete Manufacturing


In multi-workflow discrete production environments, products go through the production process in a more-or-less linear fashion, but different products will take different paths from start to finish. This is a particularly challenging environment to achieve optimum flow and low queue times because the traditional Kanban method of pulling products, or batches of products, through the facility does not work well. And when that challenge is added to intermittent demand for products, or an engineer-to-order production model, traditional push/MRP dispatching was the current state of the art prior to the dawn of Vortex™ technology.

Semiconductor Manufacturing


The re-entrant workflows in a semiconductor, and certain machining, fabrication facility is a good example of the production operations that have been “left behind” in the rest of industry’s pursuit of lean manufacturing goals. Small pilot operations have been developed but never fulfilled to their fullest. Now, with Vortex™’s revolutionary, workflow agnostic, approach to demand-pull production dispatching, there is finally a path to lean manufacturing in these industries.
