Data needed for meetings in a digital format

Shop Floor Manager gathers desired data from the company’s production systems to support operational management. The system replaces traditional whiteboards with a digitally visualized data sheet.

Comprehensive reporting by automation of data collection

Shop Floor Manager collects information about ARROW systems and the company’s own ERP and MES systems. Digitalisation reduces the amount of manual work and the leaves time to analyze data. Automated data gathering is systematic and standardized.

Revealed deviations

How did we do yesterday? What do we have planned for today and tomorrow? Are we keeping up with the production schedule, are we ahead or behind? Shop Floor Manager reveals the real-time production status and helps to focus efforts on what is important right now.

Shop Floor Manager serves different organisational levels

Shop Floor Management model can be extended to higher organisational levels as well. When the operational production team is discussing tomorrow’s work load in their meetings, the management can focus on the entire week in their own. Data included in the Shop Floor Manager is tailored for each group’s needs.

Visual support for daily activities

Visualisation of data is proved to be an efficient way of perceiving complexity issues and increasing operational transparency in factory environments. In connection to visual management, the “three second rule” is often mentioned. This refers to conveying essential information quickly through visualisation. A truly supportive system for shop floor management makes it possible to make both proactive and reactive decisions easily, factually and quickly.
