Our Story


the best

management system

Amazing things happen to your business when we connect those dots of utility and value.

If you are like most manufacturers, important shop floor efficiency and machine downtime data is collected manually and entered into the production tracking system by a human operator.

It is very likely that this manufacturing data is not as reliable as it could be. The three common problems with manual collection of shop floor data are untimeliness, inaccuracy, and bias.

ShopFloorConnect Asset Utilization Software and hardware automatically collect shop floor production data that is timely, accurate, and unbiased. Best of all, this production tracking system does it automatically, and in real time!

Schedule Interface

The scheduling interface feature in ShopFloorConnect production tracking software allows you to create a queue of jobs to run in each machine. You can either import a schedule from your existing ERP software, or use ShopFloorConnect’s web browser interface to select the appropriate jobs and the quantity of parts required.

Once a schedule is created, ShopFloorConnect automatically sends the “next job” information to the Machine Interface When it’s time to run the next job, the machine operator simply selects “Load Next Job” and the information, including the good parts counter preset, is retrieved from the ShopFloorConnect shop floor management system.

ShopFloorConnect production tracking software predicts the completion time/date for each job in the queue with an industry-best algorithm that analyzes real-time as well as historical changeover and production data.
