FACTVIEW is the unique Web based query facility that allows any FACTIVITY MES factory using the add-on Document Module to allow everyone access to real-time FACTIVITY data. These queries provide multiple views of FACTIVITY data.
With this kind of portable access, FACTVIEW allows floor supervisors to be mobile but still have connectivity in real-time. The software enables managers to view measurements such as employee daily activity, paperless dispatching of jobs, part/job work-in-process status, and machine performance showing the classic overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) measurements of:
- Asset availability and downtime
- Production performance to expected rates
- Quality problems of scrap versus good product produced at each work station
In addition to real-time, up-to-the-minute information about current factory floor activities, FACTVIEW also provides a historical set of metrics and KPIs (key performance indicators) in spreadsheet form. FACTVIEW also features:
Labor Time Tracking as well as a paperless shift by shift JOB CARD showing an employee’s job in/out time on each job including downtime, set-ups, production reporting and scrap reporting along with reason codes for the entire shift.
Part Inquiry that enables the manufacturer’s customer service team to view the current location and expected completion time of parts in production. This can also be searched by purchase order when necessary.
Dispatch Views provides details on jobs scheduled to run in an operation. This can be used by non-direct production areas such as the quality and/or maintenance department to see what part is currently running at each machine or line, the status of that operation, and when it is expected to complete during the shift.
