Shop Floor Insight
A comprehensive MES solution for barcoded time capture and employee time management.
Shop Floor Insight is a Manufacturing Execution System add-on for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central that significantly reduces the labor costs and entry errors associated with manual data entry. Shop Floor Insight allows employees to use barcode scanners or touch screens to speed up shop data input for time, material, quality, and more.
Professional production management
Shop Floor Insight utilizes barcodes or touch screens to simplify data capture on the shop floor and reduce the errors associated with manual time entry.
Streamline shop floor data capture
Enhance data capture and management using Shop Floor Insight’s intuitive user interface. Employees can quickly record time against production orders, non-productive activities, and maintenance using shared or individual shop terminals or devices.
Significantly reduce rework
Rework is a major issue for many manufacturers. Identifying and capturing rework time can often be extremely tedious and difficult with manual systems. Shop Floor Insight makes it simple to capture rework on the shop floor and to analyze the root causes to help reduce costs and improve productivity.
Real-time reporting enables users to analyze job progression and costing; providing immediate feedback to supervisors and planners while maintaining a detailed production history. Shop Floor Insight data is easily accessible through Power BI and other tools for detailed reporting.
Shop floor staff can clock-on and clock-off of tasks using a smartphone
The Shop Floor Insight app for Business Central enables users to track their work time on the shop floor using their smartphones. With this app, users can clock in and out of tasks directly from their mobile devices, providing an efficient and convenient way to monitor shop floor time and ensure accurate time tracking. This app helps streamline the time tracking process and provides real-time visibility into shop floor activity, making it a valuable tool for businesses looking to optimize their operations and improve productivity.
Drastically reduce time and attendance data entry
Reduce labor costs and data entry errors
Automate the time collection process to significantly reduce the labor costs and data entry errors associated with manual entry. Users enter time and attendance information directly into Dynamics 365 Business Central, with simple supervisor approvals.
Built-in validation and configurable payroll rules eliminate manual payroll data management. Shop Floor Insight’s intuitive shop floor interface reduces training time and minimizes change for the end users, helping to ensure a successful and cost effective rollout.
Customizable and configurable
Customizable rules further reduce the time and effort required to calculate overtime and other variables. Configurable work types, payroll codes, project types, and shift patterns adapt to all potential workforce configurations.
In the event of time card issues, collaboration tools allow the payroll department to efficiently communicate directly to responsible personnel. Resolving time card issues at the source helps to minimize the time required for resolving discrepancies after payroll has been run.
