Shop Floor Insight

Professional production management

Shop Floor Insight utilizes barcoded production orders 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 setup and/or run time against production orders, nonproductive time, and maintenance using shared shop terminals or handheld devices.

Significantly reduce rework

Calculating rework (the amount of time spent repairing defective product) can be extremely tedious and hard to determine. Shop Floor Insight provides readily available insight into not only how much rework is taking place, but also allows users to drill-down for root cause analysis and rework.

Real-time Reporting

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 also provides pre-configured reports for managing operations, which can be used for safety program compliance.

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 NAV, with simple supervisor approvals.

Built-in validation and configurable payroll rules eliminates manual payroll data management. Shop Floor Insight’s intuitive shop floor interface, which emulates the look and feel of a paper time card, 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.

Clear communication

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.
