GlobalReader’s ShopFloor Feedback feature has recently received an update. This update allows operators to insert maintenance jobs as an interruption reason. This is a significant improvement that enables operators to track machine downtime and report any technical issues that need to be addressed. By providing real-time data from production lines, GlobalReader helps manufacturers to increase efficiency and reduce costs. The updated GlobalReader ShopFloor Feedback feature is a valuable addition to any factory seeking to implement lean manufacturing practices.
From machine operator directly to maintenance technician
The idea of the update is simple – it works by allowing machine operators to insert machine stop reasons as a maintenance job. When the operator adds the interruption reason – such as ‘technical’ – a message, email or a notification is sent to the technician. After getting the alert technician will then go to the machine and check it out. If something needs repairing or a spare part then tech team can prioritise that as the job automatically appears in Maintenance feature as a job. This ensures that the maintenance team can be quickly notified of any issues that may arise, and respond in a timely manner to minimise production downtime.
Why maintain factory equipment with GlobalReader Maintenance?
GlobalReader Maintenance simplifies tracking, monitoring and scheduling maintenance jobs, providing a single source of truth for maintenance data. Each device has a separate log that keeps track of what was changed, when, and which spare parts were used. This information is crucial in identifying patterns of machine failure and developing maintenance schedules that help prevent downtime. It’s essential for factories in the rapidly evolving landscape of Industry 4.0, providing a tool that meets their real needs.
With all maintenance data stored in one place, it’s easy to track progress, identify bottlenecks, and monitor the status of maintenance jobs. By providing a single source of truth for maintenance data, it is a must tool for implementing a smart factory, ensuring that manufacturers can stay ahead of the curve. The Maintenance feature helps to reduce costs and waste, while keeping factories running at peak efficiency. GlobalReader Maintenance is an essential tool for factories seeking to maintain all their equipment properly.
A way to achieve a smoother manufacturing
By integrating the Maintenance feature into the ShopFloor Feedback feature, GlobalReader has made it even easier for operators to keep track of machine downtime and report any issues that need attention. The update also makes it easier for technicians to keep track of repairs and spare parts. This could potentially save the factory significant time and money, as well as ensure a smoother and more efficient production line. Additionally, this technology could be used to detect and prevent potential issues from occurring in the first place, before they have a chance to affect the entire production.
This improvement is just one example of how we work in GlobalReader. Our commitment is to provide our customers with the tools they need to make their factories more efficient and productive.
