What is Mobility? Have you ever thought to run your shop floor using mobile devices?
Combining Mobility and Flexibility.
What happens when mobility and flexibility are combined with paperless manufacturing on the shop floor? Enter, the tablet PC. The shop floor is by no means a stationary environment. It’s a rhythmical set of processes and people optimized to ensure maximum efficiency and productivity. Increasingly, manufacturers have realized that mobility for personnel, not just goods, on the shop floor is critical to achieving and sustaining operational excellence.
Many shop floor employees and supervisors are responsible for a broad work area. That means they need access to specifications and drawings at various sites around the plant, they need to move around with the work instructions and they need to be able to enter data wherever they happen to be. Any lost time can delay production and have a direct impact on a company’s bottom line.
Our Mobility consulting uses the power of SAP ERP in combination with Sybase (SUP).
Usage scenarios are key when deciding how and where to use tablet computers:
Shop floor managers may need mobile status updates, dashboards or on-site monitoring. While you could do this by screen placement on the floor, there may be cases where certain managers should have this information at all times.
