Real time visibility of your shop floor goes mobile
Seiki Systems has released a new Live Status Lite feature as part of its Machine Monitoring software module.
The standard Live Status feature within Seiki’s resource monitoring solution provides a dynamic real time view of the shop floor, showing current machine status and optionally works order related information, of configured resources within the facility. It displays a pictorial representation of the shop floor overlayed with resource status tiles displaying live data such as Current, Time in Status, active Works Order Number and Operation. The tiles are also colour coded to enable users to identify the live status condition of each individual monitored resource as it is automatically updated and/or manually input on the terminal by the operator. With the prevalence of 3G and Wi-Fi smartphones and tablets, Live Status Lite has been designed to provide an optimal viewing experience (easy reading and navigation) of this summary data on mobile devices without sacrificing the real time information.
Taking Live Status Lite mobile extends the real time visibility of shop floor activity to production managers anywhere and whenever it is needed. At a quick glance, users can easily determine any current resource status, time in status and see the active works order operation. Today businesses want to improve efficiency and increase workplace effectiveness, and so extending access to live production information outside of the physical environment can really help users to stay connected in their efforts to achieve the control and flexibility to be competitive in today’s demanding and competitive market.
