Mobile manufacturing

Staying mobile and connected at all times has become a standard in many areas of our lives. Why should the world of manufacturing be different? Although you can definitely do many daily operations related to production from behind an office desk easily and efficiently, there are still a lot of tasks where using a desktop computer or a laptop slows the whole process down.

Line operators, line feeders, warehouse workers, maintenance technicians… all of them have one thing in common: they need to be flexible and mobile. They spend most of their shift on the shopfloor or in the warehouse, making sure there’s enough material for production lines, that all the goods are assembled correctly and on time, or that all the assets are in the best possible condition. In order to do their work efficiently, they need to have the right data at hand, without having to go to check anything on a computer or with their team leader.

Go mobile with Productoo Smart Factory Solutions

The biggest benefit of Smart Factory Solutions is that they connect back office staff with shopfloor workers by giving all of them real-time access to the same data. Whatever a production or maintenance planner does in the application, shopfloor teams can immediately see on their screens. Moreover, the interface is adjusted to the needs of the particular user or group of users. Anything these workers need to know or do is right at their fingertips.

To give you a better idea, let’s look at a few examples:

  • Maintenance technicians use tablets or smartphones with the mobile module of Maintenance Control. This allows them to issue and receive maintenance notifications, display working instructions, check spare parts availability and report on the jobs they have completed. Right on the shopfloor.
  • Line operators work with the Digital Workstation. This module, designed specifically for touchscreens, gives them all the information they need right at production lines. Just by a touch of a finger, operators can display working instructions, declare production or issue a maintenance notification. And if the production planner changes the plan, the operator immediately sees the change on the screen.
  • Line feeders use a special feature of Production Control to check which material they need to prepare for which production line. As a result, the production can go smoothly at all times.
  • Managers can use our Factory Cockpit Mobile App to stay updated on any issues they want to know about. Even when they are out of the plant, they can receive push notifications so that nothing slips through their fingers.
