Visual Next has launched the improved application for Shop Floor Process Optimization using capacity planning and real-time shop floor monitoring. Factories utilising this tool achieve greater visibility of their workforce productivity with built in analytics to make better business decisions and improve efficiencies and processes to deliver more products.

Visual RTS provides manufacturers and their facilities with secure access to real-time operational data deployed over WiFi. The newly designed Visual RTS application provides manufacturing clients with an easy-to-deploy and device agonistic module built to streamline shop floor operations from employee management through embedded barcode ticketing – all deployed over WiFi using smart devices for a low cost of ownership, Visual Next said in a press release.

Visual RTS empowers manufacturers to build strong, collaborative shop floor work environments by facilitating communication between operators and management teams with SMS and chat functionality. Embedded ticketing and labeling with full barcode capabilities mobilises the workforce with the scanning of individual operations tasked to an operator or machine, including measurement of completion against KPI metrics and inspections.

"One of our greatest strengths has always been the fact that we are truly tailored to the apparel and fashion industry. As manufacturer’s look for more progressive and collaborative relationships with their factories and we onboard more and more global manufacturers, we develop innovation to support their business requirements and enhance our solutions specifically to support the future of manufacturing. The supply chain requires speed to market and that is accomplished with a combination of relationships and technology to streamline every step of the product from concept to consumer.” Charles Benoualid, VP of research and development at Visual Next, said.

Customers may purchase this module as a standalone or as an extension of their current Visual Next platform, the release added. Visual RTS connects directly to ERP systems in order to track and update production processes as it facilitates employee pay and enterprise wide production management. The module is easily integrated into any ERP solution and Excel with minimal hardware requirements.

Web-based and device agnostic, Visual RTS can be used via tablet, desktop, and mobile phone, and is integrated to payroll systems and finger scanners, so that time, attendance and pay will be calculated based on productivity. Dashboards provide real-time visibility and management of employee time and attendance, operator performance by task, machine diagnostics, and production metrics and much more. (RR)
