Start driving decisions with machine data.

    Before this release, jobs had to be scheduled in advance which works well for shops that have long running jobs, and few changeovers but not for shops where job changeover is high. Starting today, you can start and stop jobs directly from the dashboard or Workcenter view. Simply create your upcoming jobs and specify which machines they can be run on, and then operators can start and stop them in real-time in Workcenter Views and in the factory floor dashboard.

    Operators can also start and stop jobs directly from the dashboard. Additionally, admins can search all jobs and quickly associate them with a machine or create an entirely new job on the fly.

    Managers should associate workcenters with jobs so they are available for operators to select when dispatching the job.
