ShopFloorConnect has a powerful browser-based reporting feature that allows you to configure and generate reports on demand, or to set up schedules to automatically deliver pre-configured reports. The ShopFloorConnect Standard Reports are templates that can be configured to include data from a specified time period, also from specific machines, operators, part numbers (or other important parameters depending on machine type), and/or shift. The individual reports have a number of report-specific configurable parameters called "filters" that control the report content.
Your machines send production data to ShopFloorConnect over your existing Ethernet. ShopFloorConnect logs the latest status from every machine and makes it available to you in real time.
A ShopFloorConnect Machine Interface is installed on each machine in your facility. The Machine Interface features a touch-screen display that allows the machine operator to select downtime reasons and enter data. With just a few connections to the machine controller, the SFC Interface can detect when the machine is running, count cycles or parts (where applicable), and inhibit machine operation after a stoppage until the operator specifies a downtime reason.
The Machine Interface communicates over your existing Ethernet to the ShopFloorConnect software running on your server. ShopFloorConnect constantly polls the machines, and logs all machine time into one of five different categories or “states”:
