In companies with multi-shift operations communication across shifts is usually difficult to organize. Mostly, there is only a very reduced timespan for handing over the shifts.
If you wish to guarantee a smooth production process and keep the quality of your products constant, it is essential to fully document and pass on any information on incidents arisen during shifts.
The shift log book provides you with a logbook in real-time and informs you about any incidents occurred in the plant or corporate division. The shift log book will be updated every 30 seconds, so that staff members can always see important messages immediately while passing the respective monitors! For even simpler processes, it is possible to link the system to the shift scheduler.
When starting the shift, you have to open a new dataset for the handover (=report) containing all relevant basis information on the shift and its crew, such as staff present and their functions (shift foreman, first aider, etc.)
Depending on the rights and roles your staff members may now create messages and gather data based on an easily comprehensible and clearly structured entry mask.
For their work processes, shifts often also require information of external offices or of those across shifts, such as laboratories, development, management etc. These groups can be saved as external ones within the system, and they may then enter instructions across shifts. After their completion, these instructions will be highlighted as executed.
All tasks and editing steps will be logged. Via the integrated traffic light function you can easily see the respective status of each task. Completed reports will directly go to the archive. Messages that have been created once can be searched for in a structured way and they may be filtered. Then, the result, as well as the entire shift report, can be exported as pdf-file.
For displaying corporate structures in a more individual manner, system administrators may define the corresponding parameters via the front-end:
By using the shift report you assure that incidents will be gathered in a structured way, documented and evaluated accordingly. This again will help you to maintain the quality of your production.
By using the Shift Log Book you will prevent any information from passing unnoticed and guarantee and optimal electronic shift handover!
