It is no secret; the performance of frontline operators directly impacts the bottom line of manufacturers across the globe.

Top 6 Connected Worker Solutions from ShopVue
Today’s definition of the connected worker is enabling any worker with connective technologies to help them do their job more effectively and make real-time, data-based, decisions.
Here are 6 reasons why a connected worker environment drives operational excellence and why a comprehensive MES platform is the cornerstone of it all:
1. Paperless Manufacturing
Electronically dispatch prioritized work-to lists that communicate work orders or serialized parts to work on and provide associated instructions, photos, and videos.
2. Digital Instructions
Ensure the build plan is followed and reduce costly scrap and rework by providing inline quality tests and complete part genealogy.
3. Labor and Attendance Management
Engage Operators with quick and easy data entry screens for attendance and labor transactions, built-in validations ensure accuracy at the source, and enables fully paperless time-off requests and approvals.
4. Advanced Machine Maintenance
Automatically notify the Maintenance department and create a Maintenance Order (ticket in ShopVue) when Machines go down on the shop floor. Track Maintenance Labor with real-time visibility and status.
5. Operator Console
Configure the operator interface to your company needs, by user or by work center, etc. Provide operators with digital feedback and the metrics they need to be engaged and efficient.
6. Employee Certifications
Verify if the employee is certified to run the machines required to do the job.
