Understanding the reasoning behind our downtime improves the efficiency of the machine. Measuring the efficiency of a machine is critical to our business and then being able to understand the reasons behind downtime improves on our efficiency.
Collecting all data from the operators like downtime or real time spindle run . Which could help us with scheduling jobs or meeting customer satisfaction. The product is very easy to use , the best thing I liked about the product is that I can monitor all the spindle time on every machine from the cottage or from the office at work.
Great stuff! Ease of use and accurate data output from machines.
Great advantage using Shiftworks for Paper machine processing roll to roll. Machine operator’s performance and Order processing time have given us a new approach to order plannning and Inventory scheduling. Its user friendliness, installation time, and ease of learning and implementation are all pros of ShiftWorx MES.
Favorable. Good and quick tech support. Quick easy installation and set up. Clean Graphics with easy customization of views.
We have focused on downtime issues. Finding out where the problems are and correcting them as needed. The reporting and scheduled reporting makes it easy for our Group Leaders to provide updates to management and employees.
Real time data is key - Overall I am satisfied with ShiftWorx. Ability to effectively display production information real time and quickly identify/correct issues as they arise. Also really like the “Time Shift” functionality that has been brought back from previous versions.
Makes a difference right away! This simple to use software drives performance on the shopfloor right away. It allows for simple metrics that drive bottom line results. I saw immediate changes to how our machinists decided to process jobs as they got visual feedback of the importance of spindle uptime. At a glance I can see what has happened in the last 24 hours and understand our performance - and so can everyone else in the company.
After the initial set up, everything has been running rather smoothly. It’s great that I can access the real-time data via the web-based dashboard.
Great for automotive manufacturing use. Nice oversight of production results or issues.
After implementing ShiftWorx, Excel experienced a 40% decrease in machine downtime. Runtime on our cutting machines increased by 50%. All employees could see how their machine was running and this helped engage machine operators in keeping their machines running and identifying reasons for downtime.
We have had a great experience with ShiftWorx and their crew of people who support the system. Added features we needed were implemented and it’s a tool we use daily. Good customer service which made choosing ShiftWorx easier.
Great remote factory floor visibility. Overall, the product was easy to install, customize and use to monitor and identify ways to improve productivity. Especially during Covid when travel to our 4 factories was restricted, the Shiftworx software was very instrumental in allowing me to monitor the progress that our manufacturing equipment was making. The software also allows you to quickly see variances both over time and compared to similar equipment and take corrective actions if needed. The Shiftworx software and freepoint hardware allowed visibility to our oldest and newest machines including Oxy fuel flame cutters, Blanchard Grinders and CNC milling machines. We have made an overall machine efficiency improvement of 15% in the last 2 years using shiftworx to monitor the progress.
The support has been great that’s the biggest comment I have. The idea of this package is great. I like that the program is very easy to use and the amount of options is really great; as an engineer I like the way I can tinker with it. Its a great interface to work with.
Overall Good Price for the product. Very much like it , and will implement in a broader scheme. The direct visual bars and KPIs are great for machining/ production. Reporting feature very nice. It’s a mature product and is low cost.
We improved production uptime by using concrete data. The overall experience is pleasurable. The technical support we receive is always second to none. The team at ShiftWorx is always willing to help - even to the point of designing or redesigning aspects of the software to make our company more productive. The data collected on our KPI’s helps us make well informed decisions.
