Connected to each machine, intouch is able to monitor production in real time and deliver live, up to date information to any part of your factory.

The current status of each machine can be seen at a glance. Key performance figures such as scrap rate, down time, efficiency, utilisation and set-up time are displayed on fully configurable mimic diagrams, details pages and summary pages through familiar Windows based software.

Operators can also interact with the system through easy to use keypads located at each machine on the shop floor.

All data collected by the monitoring system is recorded in the intouch archive database. As well as being available to the intouch reporting module, the archive database can be interrogated through industry standard software such as Microsoft Excel or Access.

intouch includes a very easy to use and intuitive scheduling module. Jobs can be input manually or downloaded automatically from your existing manufacturing system.

The job schedule view gives details of each job enabling operators on the shop floor to prepare for up-coming tool changes.

The Gantt chart view provides a graphical visualisation of machine loading and capacity utilisation. Rescheduling is easily achieved through a simple drag and drop operation. Jobs on the Gantt chart can be highlighted for various reasons. For example, to identify tool changes, late jobs or resource clashes.

The plan takes your shift pattern into account, as well as any planned maintenance, overtime or shutdowns. Furthermore, each individual job can be forward scheduled or backward scheduled to highlight spare capacity.
