The whole idea of the shop floor mobile app is to provide the business central user with two major functionalities.

One of them being the shop floor overview, the other one being the, what we call mobile flow shop floor production.

So the shop floor overview is like a screen or a setup where you can create an interface for the user in the manufacturing area, seeing production lines, capacities, operation lines, and providing a very nice overview with a lot of flexibility in the filtering.

So you can see in the manufacturing area, what are we going to do, what am I going to do on this work center, etc.

So it’s an overview and it’s also an overview where you can do quick registrations on for instance, times, output start/stop time, etc.

So the shop floor overview is one part of the shop floor mobile, the other part of the shop floor mobile is the mobile flow shop floor production as we call it, which is an interface where you can easily register everything about production orders.

This can be used from all kinds of devices, scanners, screens, tablets, iPhones, whatever smartphones.

And it’s the flow based functionality where you can, for instance, register one runtime, scan or enter a production order number, scan, or enter the operation number you’re working at, and then enter the amount of minutes you’ve been working with it.

And thereby, making fast registrations, and you can do it again here.

In this way you can register production time, you can work with what we call my operations where you can use start/stop functionality, and see your time collectors.

And you can of course work with production materials, meaning consuming everything and registering finished quantity on production orders.
