After extensive customer research, FactoryWiz has introduced the new Flexible Tablet Interface (FTI) for the FactoryWiz Monitoring Systems. The new Flexible Tablet Interface offers system owners the use of customized widgets for data entry and display without programming knowledge.
FactoryWiz continues to expand in the U.S. and Europe with new features that solve common challenges. One important feature often requested is a custom Machine Operator Tablet with standardized company look-and-feel. The new Flexible Tablet Interface allows customers to easily customize the Tablet Interface for their specific application. While all collected data is valuable, meaningful display data is subjective and different for almost everyone.
The primary function of the Operator Tablet is for bidirectional exchange of information such as On Pace/Off Pace production status, light maintenance reminders, interaction with Quality Dept and, most importantly, as a tool for operators to input downtime “why” reasons that are defined by management and displayed as large buttons for operators to easily access. Reasons for machines not in production can include critical information, including no-material, first-article inspection, program change and down for maintenance.
FactoryWiz Monitoring is a powerful, web-based CNC machine tool and non-CNC asset monitoring and data collection system. FactoryWiz Monitoring provides an on-premise intranet solution, which includes software to drive all large screen dashboards, automatically email historical reports with real-time status of manufacturing assets and process. Use live display dashboards to drive behavior and see quantifiable improvement in productivity. Back-feed the ERP system with actual metrics based on computerized, nonjudgmental data.
