Overall benefits

Operator functionalities are focused on benefits like:

  • Single point access to all relevant information
  • Easy data capture
  • Improved data quality
  • Visibility for better decision making
  • Reduction of administrative costs
  • Improved productivity
  • Shorter lead time
  • Faster reaction to changes
  • Improved delivery performance
  • Better product quality
  • Employee involvement

Many of the modules in Operator are developed in close cooperation with our customers and have been tested intensively in live environments – they compare favorably with “Best-of-breed” solutions. The main benefit with Operator is however the WIDTH of functionality and the INTEGRATION between the individual modules. Some examples are:

  • Integration between Time & Attendance and Job Reporting enables the possibility to compare total attendance time with total time reported on production orders and indirect time for an employee for a shift or other period.
  • Production reporting and maintenance reporting can be done in the same system with consistent user dialogue.
  • Lost time can be analyzed with respect to which products are causing especially high losses of a certain type on a certain machine.
  • Scrap can be compared with process values at the time the scrap was produced.
  • Labels are printed on the shop floor when needed and only in the amount needed.
