Process Trakker combines valuable information gathering with real-time, Smart Client-based insight into exactly what is happening on the manufacturing floor. Rather than learning of a backlog or bottleneck two weeks after the fact, a manager or supervisor can identify, interact, and prevent issues before they become problems. Process Trakker is build to make your manufacturing process as efficient as possible by providing real time information to the appropriate individuals who can ensure the process is running as close to 100% as possible. Start: Items or workorders are entered into the Process Trakker system Track: Items or workorders through a defined process Identify: Maintenance or production issues in real time Production: Ensure production levels are in line with expectations.
