Frontline managers need complete visibility and control of the shop floor to prevent problems such as overruns, bottlenecks, downtime, poor employee or machine performance and excessive scrap. Collecting this data by conventional methods can be complicated, time-consuming and expensive.
Smart Manager MOM/MES incorporates shop floor data collection (SFDC) from your employees and equipment with options to automatically connect your machines in order to read data without manual inputs, helping to digitise your factory (Industry 4.0).
The solution provides manufacturers with real-time shop floor visibility, helping to eliminate manual processes and increase productivity. It enables you to execute production plans while simply and accurately capturing and measuring activities on the factory floor such as labour hours, materials issued, quantities reported, scrap and more.
Smart Manager MOM/MES meets all of your shop floor data collection and tracking needs:
Workbench – collect data both on and off the shop floor from your employees or equipment in real-time using a “stopwatch” style of recording for accuracy. Data recorded here is used to support the calculations of overall labour effectiveness (OLE) and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
Connect Equipment – digitise your factory by collecting data from your machines and other devices automatically.
Dashboard – high level view of your orders, products, employees and equipment. Select specific employees and equipment to view status and performance for a selected time period.
Employee Status – at a glance live view of your employees, what their current status is, what they are working on, and how they are performing during their shift. Drill down into each employee card for a detailed view. Use status indicators to access their workbench to help with clocking and other management issues.
Equipment Status – at-a-glance live view of your equipment, what the current status is, what jobs they are running, and how they are performing during the shift. Drill down into each equipment card for a detailed view. Use status indicators to access the equipment workbench for management purposes.
Job Status – review open jobs to check their status. Use progress bars to gain visibility of hours booked, materials issued and overall progress at a glance. Drill down to view specific job details including attached documents and issues recorded.
Transaction Review – review (edit, delete, add) and/or approve all transactions generated via the workbench or entered from timesheets. Automated, scheduled posting of approved transactions to ERP system for financial analysis. Manual “sync now” option also available. Export to payroll systems (optional).
Employee Performance – detailed analysis of an individual equipment performance with supporting detail including audit trails and a record of the issues encountered.
Equipment Performance – detailed analysis of an individual equipment performance with supporting detail including audit trails and a record of the issues encountered.
