Job Tracking

Production tracking software for batch and discrete manufacturing

 

Real-time production tracking to see the progress of orders as they are executed

ERP systems need production orders (also called work orders) confirmed upon completion, but depending on the configuration, booking points might be limited or booking might be after-the-fact, giving poor visibility of production order progress and WIP. Use the Job Tracking software module of Shopfloor-Online MES to:
  • Record the start and end of each production run, electronically, in real-time
  • Track progress through the routing 
  • MES software can provide more confirmation points than ERP to increase visibility
 

Discrete Manufacturing

  • Maintain the routing manually or download it from the ERP
  • Enable production order tracking through each manufacturing operation
  • Record the start and end of production runs
  • Optionally scan bar-codes at each operation to speed up data capture

Batch Manufacturing

  • Enable production order tracking for each batch process
  • Record the start and end of production runs

Record Production Orders Data

  • Record sign offs at each stage of production
  • Capture planned quantity, actual quantity, start & end time and duration

Upload to ERP

  • Confirm completed operations to ERP

Production Execution Dashboards

  • Track the progress of production orders throughout the factory
  • Provide full history of each production order
  • Paperless operations – remove paper-based orders, save work, reduce cost and improve communication
  • Real-time visibility - know the status of each order in production, know the status of all production processes in real-time
  • Traceability of all production orders allowing additional data to be recorded like quality checks, materials consumed, lots created etc.

In a manufacturing execution system, the production order is the fundamental record of production. All data captured during the production process – for example, the precise start and stop times of each job - is tied back to the order. The Job Tracking module is the cornerstone of production traceability reporting that can be enhanced with other Shopfloor-Online MES modules:
