Line Log Book - Shopfloor-Online Production

Improve communication between your teams with an electronic log book


Need better shift hand-overs? 

So many factories still use paper line log books, but these are difficult to share and don’t facilitate communications between teams. Use the Line Log Book software module to:
  • Replace paper line log books 
  • Improve visibility and communication 
  • Ensure all shift events are recorded, such as set up conditions, tool changes, material changes and process adjustments
  • Provide traceability with shift records being available to all on the plant
  • All information is time-stamped and automatically related to the production run, product being made, process and equipment
  • Allow operatives to record comments and information at any time
  • Provide a readily available list of user-defined events to record: shift handovers comments, tool changes, cleaning, issues, etc.
  • Go paperless – no more paper distribution, collation and filing
  • Learn lessons – what were the difficult production runs – what were the issues?
  • Avoid mistakes – get easy access to the log book where all issues are recorded
  • Improve effectiveness –save operators’ time and make it easy for everyone to access and read the log
  • Communication – ensure no information is lost between shifts as well as between management and operators
  • Traceability – quickly trace issues on shifts in the production record 
  • Cost savings –  cut costs of filing and handling paper records
