After completing the necessary configurations to have your production reproduced in the system and after creating your first production order, we can insert productions in the system with our app on the tablet (or any other device that has been properly configured for such purpose).
This will be the interface that workers will interact with at the plant’s floor to log into the system what they produce.

There are several methods to insert productions but, for now, we will solely describe the multiple steps of one of those.

1) Starting Screen

With the tablet turned on, unlocked and with our app properly working, the Starting Screen is where a production input starts. To insert a production click “Insert Production”.

2) Identification

Usually each tablet is used by several people in the plant’s floor so the first step will be focused on their identification in order to allow the system to differentiate between the workers who are currently inserting production. The workers should insert their number, as previously configured, and then press “OK”.

In case the tablets are used by one person only, the worker screen will prevent the worker from identifying them whenever they want to record production.

Then, the worker will only access the settings which were delineated in the system’s configuration and planning, in accordance with his skills and sections, as they are configured.

3) Shipping

If any Shipping is attached to Production Orders, this screen is where the worker will indicate which Shipping they are about to address. If there are none, this screen won't be shown.

4) Production Order

Then you should select the Production Order with which you will work.

5) Product

In this screen, you should select the Product that the worker will be working on.

6) Operation

Now, choose the Operation that you will execute considering the Product which you have previously chosen.

7) The Clock has now started

After having selected Shipping (if there is any), Production Order, Product and Operation with which you will work, the system will start the clock.

8) Starting Screen …again.

The clock has started and we are now back to the starting screen.
When the Operation that you started to carry out is finished, you will get back to the starting screen and you will need to click “Insert Production” again. At this time the app can be used by another user, as long as this user identifies themselves properly.

You will need to identify yourself once again to let the system know with whom it is interacting.

9) Quantity

Insert the number of times that you carried out the indicated Operation. Usually this is equal to the quantity of intermediate product produced by such operation, except cases in which an Operation has to be performed several times in each Product.
After clicking "OK", it will ask you to confirm the Quantity you have just inserted. 

10) Confirm

In this last screen you can see all the production-related data which you are currently inserting. If everything is in accordance with what you want press “Confirm”.

11) Waste
You will be able to select if and which kind of Waste you registered during this Production Order.

12) The End

Your production was inserted. You will be able to check, in the Main Dashboard at the Management and Analysis module, its impact on the Productivity, Availability and Quality Indicators.

13) …and back to the Starting Screen.

The system is ready once again to be used by any worker.
