One of the leading reasons our users attend 3DEXPERIENCE World is to learn about the solutions on the leading edge of technology. Our extensive agenda is packed with hands-on learning experiences that will enable you to expand your own skill set and help your company become more competitive.
Manufacturing is one industry that has been especially hard hit during the past few years. Supply chain disruptions and a growing skills gap are making business more difficult for manufacturers globally. One way to navigate around these challenges is through the use of technology.
Bringing connection to the shop floor
One new solution, DELMIAWorks Shopworks integrates RealTime™ data capture into the application to help eliminate paper-based, redundant processes and production errors.
Shopworks, a touchscreen-based shop floor interface to DELMIAWorks EnterpriseIQ, improves production efficiency with configurable Work Center-specific dashboards. Key benefits include streamlining data access and RealTime™ information collection and availability, improving quality, and reducing costs by eliminating costly errors and redundant data entry. Shopworks also helps digitize manufacturing operations and improve production transparency throughout the organization.
During the Shopworks development cycle, we addressed production challenges with a diverse labor market. The first production challenge was a need for operator adoption of new technology solutions. Our user experience team met with many shop floor operators and production supervisors, resulting in a set of shop floor and supervisor value-driven features that increase adoption and empower supervisors and operations managers to preset machine operator production reporting workflows, creating a connected worker environment.
The second production challenge was to deliver a fully integrated solution to our finite scheduling and ERP system, by breaking down silos and seamlessly providing the latest schedule changes to the production floor yet flexible enough to override via escalated privileges. Shopworks delivers supervisor-escalated privileges to allow exception scenarios without risking day-to-day operations and increasing communication.
The third challenge centered on a diverse workforce community is a tailored nomenclature or multi-lingual environments. Shopworks solution is customizable and increases adoption by allowing companies to rename our default labels to terminology relevant to their business. We continue to address diverse workforce communities by providing easy-to-deploy and maintain multi-lingual solutions.
The DELMIAWorks Shop Floor Operator role delivers Shopworks and the opportunity to connect your people, equipment, and throughput via a paperless environment with minimal IT cost.
What do some of the SHOPWORKS features look like?
The Connected Worker can customize the dashboard layout experience and easily access the activities they use the most. Each shop floor operator, permanent or temporary, can have a personalized experience, allowing quick onboarding and efficient flow through essential production operator tasks, including tasking in and out of jobs, reporting downtime, rejects, and production.
Additionally, the connected worker can quickly identify progress and access the latest approved documents assigned to the Bill of Manufacture, Inventory Item, and Customer.
