Smart Shop Floor is a revolutionary cloud-based app that enables factory operators to retrieve job data from, and record job progress in, Exact for Manufacturing. With Smart Shop Floor, paperless operations and realtime communications become a reality.
Ready when you are
You can start making the most of a smarter shop floor right now. The app has been on general release since June in all countries. For all editions of Exact for Manufacturing. And across all screen sizes – including tablets and smartphones.
Paperless shop operations
Smart Shop Floor means you can finally say goodbye to printing and distributing shop papers. All the job data you need is displayed right there on the screen in front of you: part details, customer, deadline, quantity, job status and project. Not only that, but you’ll also see all the materials required to fulfill the order complete with details, routing steps and by-products too.
Shop floor time tracking
But Smart Shop Floor doesn’t stop there. A time tracking function makes it easy for operators to stay on top of the time spent on labor and machinery just by tapping the start and stop buttons. They can also report operational status in realtime – as throughput or percentage completed – and even add notes while they’re at it.
Analyze data, optimize processes
Smart Shop Floor also lets you differentiate between setup and run times, allowing you to apply different rates for accurate costings. You can then analyze the data collected from each job to identify possible improvements, reducing setup times for example, or maximizing capacity.
Manage materials more efficiently
And the app is about to get even better. We’re now working on adding the capability to register the materials issued to shop orders and the parts received from them. Exact for Manufacturing Advanced will allow you to register serial/batch numbers too.
Help us shape your shop floor
This new efficiency-boosting feature will become available for controlled release in the third quarter of 2016. Would you be interested in playing a part in the development phase? If so, you’ll get to test out the initial version in return for your feedback to help us get it perfect for general release. Just get in touch with your local support desk. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, you can do the smart thing and get Smart Shop Floor here.
