Taking your Shop Floor Management: Digital
One size does NOT fit all when it comes to Digital Shop Floor Management:
A digital shop floor starts with a kiosk where the operators can walk up to, see the jobs in process, start/stop an operation, record time, read work instructions etc. This will inevitably bring a lot of efficiency: employees will not have to sift through paperwork, hand write notes and ultimately load information into your ERP. However, there are a few problems. Every single ERP will have some sort of Shop Floor Console, which are often:
Rigid, having too many or two few functions;
Designed for one device or for a specific task;
Impossible or cost prohibitive to customize/tailor to needs;
Hardware and/or software incompatible.
How can Paapri help? Paapri works with all sorts of small to mid-market manufacturing plants. Paapri used their experience in shop floor management, along with their ERP partner Oracle + NetSuite and their Hardware Partner EloTouch, to come up with a solution called Paapri Manufacturing Console (PMC).
