Links to Documents - Lighthouse MES Quality

Remove paper on the shopfloor – provide quick and easy access to electronic documents


Need to get the right documents quickly to the shop floor?

Documents are often required on the shop floor: some might accompany the order; others may be relevant to the process or work area. Use the Links to Documents module of the MES software to:
  • Remove paper documents 
  • Only provide the latest version of the documents to be sure your workforce is always working of the correct revision 
  • Show documents in a context sensitive way. For example: show the documents that relate to the product being made, or the manufacturing process, or equipment being used
  • Make any documents available e.g. standard operating procedures (SOPs), product specifications, process instructions, recipes, CAD drawings, quality procedures, inspection plans, maintenance manuals
  • Create new libraries e.g. defect libraries, best practice information
