The ability to work on the go is one of the greatest benefits of technology. Since manufacturing plants rarely shut down for any significant amount of time, it’s important to be able to monitor operations and production at any given time. With the help of cloud based MES software, anyone can monitor these processes with their mobile device, as long as they are given the proper permissions. Here are two DIAMES mobile interface components designed to help companies constantly monitor workflow.
DIAMES-MOC – Native
The DIAMES Manufacturing Operation Console is an app linked with the DIAMES server and will allow users to:
- Sign work center operators on and off
- See the planned production schedule of the workcenter
- Start, stop or terminate a production job related to the workcenter
- See information about an active job and its progress of the workcenter
- Manually set and select down- and waiting time reasons of the workcenter
The DIAMES-MOC requirements include an SQL data exchange module to the standard DIAMES server environment in order to function. The primary benefit of this mobile app is its ability to allow users to always know what is going on with the manufacturing process of any job and to take immediate action when needed.
DIAMES-PAC – Hybrid
Another top MES application is the DIAMES Production Activity Console. This app functions similarly to the DIAMES-MOC, but it focuses on production and allows users to sign-on and off, to set run/stop conditions and report the works in progress.
The DIAMES-PAC is an Xamarin based application, which requires the latest DIAMES server version to operate. It has many of the same benefits as the DIAMES-MOC, but also supports manually operated environments. This is a huge benefit to operations managers since they can manually enter commands right into their mobile device to start or stop different operations wherever there is Internet or minimum Intranet access.
The DIAMES manufacturing execution software mobile applications are convenient for any company since you can always be connected with operations. Less down- and waiting time means a boost to the bottom line, and that’s exactly what these mobile apps can provide.
