Workstation monitoring, job tracking, material logistics and quality control
Visibility and Control Where You Need It
The Shop Manager applications enable remote access for work supervisors throughout operations for monitoring progress, providing feedback, directing transport and delivery, and managing the project. Shop Manager also informs the system with real-time intelligence of job status from everywhere in the shop.
Modular to Fit Your Needs
Shop Manager can provide control in up to six ways through these individual modules:
- Shop Floor Feedback
- Data Hub
- Quality Manager
- Shop Clock
Shop Floor Data Capture
Real-time dashboard for production feedback at the machine
Shop Floor Data Capture (SFDC) combines accurate data on machine run cycles, operator time and attendance into one fully-integrated system that allows a clear view of current job progress and statistics for work orders, operators, and departments. Fabricators can balance labor costs by shift, work order, project, or department for better control.
SFDC is an easy access point to review and report inventory levels, worker checkpoints, and productivity data. Instantly view current job progress and quality by employee, job, department, or work-center. Regulate non-conformances, reject defective parts, and track the full production cycle of re-processed parts.

Remote access to production data
