Shop Floor Insight utilizes barcodes on the shop floor to streamline system access and simplify the process of collecting time against operations on a production order.
Users will scan an ID badge equipped with a barcode that will log them into the system and depending on the configuration will display the open timecard or a dispatch list of production orders. Once logged in users simply scan the barcode on the production order to start working. Shop floor users can also capture nonproductive time such as machine downtime on the shop floor by scanning the appropriate barcode.
The use of barcoding simplifies the shop floor data collection process, ensuring the quality of the data while minimizing the overhead for the shop floor staff.
