Work-In-Progress

 

Managing a large number of jobs in a busy production environment can be a challenge. M-Power provides tools that makes this easier. Work in progress is displayed on an interface that shows all jobs in progress, their key details along with their status. Different tabs on the WIP board allow the user to see detail on jobs, parts of jobs, and the schedule

The scanning system is the primary tool that assists with updating status. When a job is scanned the system will prompt the user to confirm whether the process is complete and then index the job on the WIP board to the next process. Jobs are then displayed as "Queued" or "In-Progress".  This means that the WIP board is self managing and up to date.

Management tools are complemented by a range of filters, conditional formatting and reports that let user focus in on key issues affecting workflow.
