  • Capture operational data on the shop floor including consumption, output, scrap, and quality
  • Record and report on non-productive and rework time for better insight into lost productivity
  • Record time and attendance based on employee shifts with exception reporting
  • Easily approve time with exception-based supervisor approvals
  • Automatically calculate overtime and shift differentials for integration with payroll systems

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, jobs, 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

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.

Reduce labor costs and data entry errors

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.
