Consistent Quality For Any Skill Level

  • Digitize Quality Checks: Capture quality check data with user-friendly forms, checklists, and photo attachments. Track performance, identify issues, and minimize scrap or rework.

  • Intuitive Process Control: Adjust before products drift out of tolerance with alerts and clear visuals based on any parameter you set.

  • Live Operator Dashboards: Trend real-time operator performance on the shop floor, informing operators of their good work or needed improvements.

  • Proactive Quality Assurance: Quickly flag and report product issues so quality managers always have a live view of issues, and can prioritize their attention. 

Management That Hits The Daily Goal

  • Automated Tasks and Alerts: Define processes and trigger communications when operator tasks need to be completed, eliminating guesswork and driving accountability.

  • Reduce Holds & Shipment Delays: Clearly define workflows so operators know when to flag issues for supervisors or unplanned maintenance.

  • Trend Performance: Track shift, line, and plant performance to identify whether specifications or training should be adjusted to improve yield.

  • Internal Programs: Coordinate and track processes surrounding internal audit programs such as Pre-Ops, Maintenance, Sanitation, and EHS.

Insights To Run An Effective Line

  • Dashboards: Customizable live and historical overview of the metrics that matter, such as:

    • Machine uptime, throughput numbers and floor metrics

    • Yield performance and scrap improvement

    • Quality incident dashboard to manage non-conformances and investigations

  • Reports: compile historical reports for upper management within minutes of their request.

  • Real-Time OEE Analysis: Track and visualize critical live measures of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (throughput, availability, and quality) within the production process to accurately assess how efficiently the plant is running at any given time.

Operating With A Complete Picture

  • Downtime Tracking: Monitor equipment availability in real-time to know the moment a downtime event occurs, and dig into the “Reason why” data behind any slowdown.

  • Document Repository: Store and track versions of materials such as work instructions, maintenance requests, quality & compliance documents, and associate them with critical programs.

  • Automated (IoT) Data Capture: Simplify data capture and reduce manual data entry to inform standard operating procedures and support machine health.

  • API Library: Consolidate data from existing systems (like ERP or MES) to ensure consistent data and accessibility across the plant.

"We're stepping into visualization part of the data, getting that in front of the operators so they are empowered to make changes as needed."

"It is helping operators notice if they are starting to move towards the out-of-spec limits. It is also allowing operators to look at multiple quality aspects and how changes on the line to update results for one of the quality tests effects the outcomes of the other quality attributes of the product. Associates are taking the data into their own hands to prevent issues before they occur."

"I am trying to figure out what to do with all the extra time we have created for our operators using tablets instead of paper. A great problem to have! Giving them the tablets and telling them to go off paper is like celebrating there birthday. All the operators are happy!"
