Visual Factory is web browser-based production management software that can drastically reduce costs. Improve the productivity and efficiency of your workforce with the help of this application by preventing mistakes from the first moment (First Time Right / FTR).

Visual Factory, simple, standardized and automatic

This powerful software consists of various business functions. It is an extensive information system for monitoring and controlling production processes and provides everything that the simple work instruction systems cannot do.



The built-in intelligent and innovative configurator makes producing complex assemblies with a high variety extremely simple and cost effective.


It is a single point of contact for all production knowledge and intelligence, eliminating the need for multiple document-based systems.



The software automates and coordinates the manufacturing intelligence needed to optimize the process. Information you have at hand when you need to know.

Use Case - Parallel development of product and production line at thyssenkrupp

This project is also distinguished by turnkey integration of Visual Factory digital work instructions
Cooperation of this software with the ERP system ensures that One-Piece-Flow can be produced. The assembly operators are now presented with the correct order and product instructions at any time.

Use Case - Visual Factory at RAVO Fayat Group

Already in 2015, RAVO made the choice to start using Visual Factory manufacturing software. RAVO, a manufacturer of street sweepers, chose Visual Factory to secure the complex assembly.

Use case - Visual Factory in the Flexible Manufacturing Fieldlab

This autumn, Total Productivity, in collaboration with TNO, will integrate the Shopfloor Control System “Visual Factory” in one of the demo workplaces on the BIC Campus in Eindhoven.

Seamless integration with your existing business applications

Visual Factory is built in accordance with ISA-95, the international standard for the integration of office and production automation systems. As a result, this Manufacturing Execution System (MES) seamlessly connects your production process with most ERP and MRP packages.

That is why this system is extremely suitable for Configure to Order (CTO) and customer-specific, or High Mix / Low Volume (QRM), environments.

Visual Factory is therefore much more than just work instruction software

Livestream: Innovation & economy stimulate reshoring

Recent times have made it clear that our dependence on low-wage countries is high. Being able to operate independently of these production countries has thus become a topic of discussion.

But why is there so much production abroad? How can we shorten the chains and how do you organize production in the Netherlands? We talk about it during this NHNEXT livestream with Thijs Pennink, Hans Totté, Peter Hobbelen and Marjolijn Dölle.

Business as usual “doing business in Corona time”

Normally there is little ambition in this statement, but nowadays the pursuit of “business as usual” is already quite a challenge.
