Digital Shopfloor Smart Production
This module is the front-end user interface of the Manufacturing Execution System, which creates a paperless shopfloor with a high user experience. It is a web-app which uses its own database to store all data and to interface with the ERP to exchange all order-related information. It functions as the interface between the operator and the shopfloor. The user interface is ergonomic, user friendly and designed with a mobile first approach, making it usable on both tablets with touch screens as on classic mouse driven thin clients, as long as they feature a modern browser. The operators get clear instructions on what work is expected of them, while they can easily check the status of the AMR’s. All interactions of the operators and the AMR’s with the MES are logged and are be used to report on OEE and other statistical analysis.
The product is written in .NET
