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!
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.
