Due to the financial crisis machinery and plant engineering was one of the branches most impacted by investment refrainment, yet the decrease regarding the regions and product portfolios seems to be extremely different. Thus the Global Footprint must be reinforced e.g. in the growth market of Asia and the blend of ‚best-in-class‘ and ‚good-enough‘ must be adapted in an optimal way. It will be very important to globally optimize the production networks in order to be able to swiftly balance the massive fluctuations worldwide.
An essential success factor are optimum shift transitions and a global knowledge management to significantly enhance plant availability and to guarantee a high product yield. Thus e.g. in the field of digital shift books the research demand can be reduced by over 90% and thus worldwide knowledge data bases can be realized in Global Footprint of the production networks in a highly effective manner.
When operating machines and plants, events occur that must be documented in writing in shift books together with the measures taken. In a large number of companies this is being done and has been done by paperwork.
The digital shift book Finito will make handwritten shift logs redundant and provide a company-wide homogenous recording of information and instructions. All information gained will be stored revision-safe in a centralized data base. This way up to 90% of the time needed can be saved e.g. when doing research.
The digital recording of shift messages allows a swift statistic evaluation. Malfunctions and errors at machines and plants can be detected manually and – as far as technically possible - also be documented automatically which is of essential significance when it comes to flow manufacturing processes.
Accumulated data will be directly taken over in the electronic shift book Finito and serve as a basis for individual reports as well as a knowledge data base for troubleshooting or optimizing work flows and safety measures.
A comprehensive configuration module for administrating reports, shift times and user rights makes Finito Digital Shift Book a flexible and highly efficient tool for industrial companies.
Here you can find the advantages of Finito Digital Shift Book and how you can use the shift book in your business in a highly efficient way:
