Use of Information Technologies in Design and Production Activities of InstrumentMaking Plants


Background: In the market economy conditions the system of the economic indices reflecting the activity of the instrumentmaking plant may change quite often. The production activity of the instrument-making plant is always aimed at manufacturing the products to satisfy the demands with consideration of the customers’ requirements. Methods: All this dictates the necessity to use state-of-art methods and approaches at managing the economic processes of the instrument-making plant. Primarily, it means the implementation of high information technologies in management of various processes at the instrument-making plant in order to increase a labor productivity of the employees by decreasing the cost-production ratio and skills upgrading and developing professional competence of experts involved in management activity. Findings: This work presents the analysis of the existing means for practical implementation of the information technologies at the instrument-making plants which increase a competitive capacity of the plants, decrease production time and improve the quality of the products under design. It also gives a description of the information technologies and determines those with the relevant implementation in the instrument-making sector is at the current stage. A process chart for instrumentation equipment production at the plant is given and the stages (process operations) are distinguished at which the implementation of the information technologies is impossible without development of the new support tools. The authors have offered the new automated support tools for design and production processes which increase a competitive ability of the enterprise and which are the forms of a practical implementation of the information technologies. The aforementioned new automated support tools are dedicated for the instrument-making sector and are integrated into the plant information system. Improvements: The materials of the present article are of a practical value for the experts involved in solving the tasks associated with support of design, production and economic activities of instrument-making plants.
