What is Excellerant Software?

   By Paul Ludwick on May 9, 2023

Excellerant is a manufacturing data management platform that can help enhance the workflows of manufacturing processes, DNC and MDC capabilities, reporting, implementation, and hardware. It offers a range of features that can make it easier for operators to input data, track machine performance, monitor downtime, and generate reports.

One of the key features of Excellerant is its ability to connect three different sources in the manufacturing process. It allows for direct bidirectional communication with the machine, capture of manufacturing data directly from operators, and bidirectional communication with various ERP-type tools. This integration ensures that all relevant data is captured and can be used to make informed decisions about production processes.

Excellerant also offers DNC capabilities, which allows for a central location for all data on the shop floor and automatic revisions. The DNC portion of Excellerant has a user-friendly interface that provides the ability to send data to and receive data from machines. Operators can easily input data instead of filling out papers, and the DNC portion of Excellerant has flexibility in how you can customize how you want your data to be viewed. The platform also places revisions in a separate folder from the latest version, which is useful for ISO certifications that require tracking history and revisions.

Another feature of Excellerant is its MDC capabilities, which empowers operators and allows for real-time monitoring. The platform puts everything in a dashboard, where users can view all their machines and filter down what they need to see. The dashboard shows information such as current projects, average cycle time, who’s assigned to it, and how many parts they have completed. Excellerant can track overall equipment effectiveness and shop floor interface. The scrap reporting area is particularly useful, as it allows clients to notate how many parts were cut and how many were good, which gets pushed back to the ERP.

Excellerant can be accessed via a web browser, and it allows operators to quickly identify the cause of any downtime by viewing downtime information on a tablet or cell phone. The platform also offers reports, such as utilization reports, downtime reports, scrap reports, and custom reports. Custom reports can be created using the built-in API, allowing users to track efficiency and processes in a way that suits their needs. Additionally, Excellerant has an open API that allows it to connect to any peripheral, and it meets high-security standards such as CMMC, ITAR, NIST 800-171, DOD 8570, DFARS, and FIPS 140-3.

The implementation of hardware involves a box that mounts outside or inside a machine, which communicates with the Excellerant server installed in the facility, allowing for remote or on-site installation. Excellerant is an on-premise solution, meaning it can run on a closed network, meeting quality and defense standards.

Excellerant’s reporting capabilities include utilization reports, downtime reports, scrap reports, and custom reports. The platform offers various reports, such as the part or cycle report, which can be customized to provide whichever data is required. The search function allows users to search for any part workplaces, users, and jobs and generate a report based on that information. Excellerant can push and pull production and scheduling data from ERP systems or any other systems that house and schedule data.

Overall, Excellerant is a powerful tool that can significantly impact manufacturing workflows, DNC and MDC capabilities, reporting, implementation, and hardware. By using Excellerant, manufacturers can streamline their processes and reduce downtime, resulting in increased productivity and efficiency. The platform is highly customizable, allowing users to create reports and track data in a way that suits their specific needs. If you are looking to enhance your manufacturing processes, DNC and MDC capabilities, reporting, implementation, and hardware, then Excellerant is worth exploring.
