What needs to be done?
What has been done?.
Who did what?
Sales are imported from the accounting system, creating a sequence of tasks or workflow for each new job.
The Production Manager prioritises jobs using drag and drop.
Staff at each workstation use kiosk computer to view a “To Do List”. The tasks that are ready to do have a green light.
If the sales person has promised the job to the customer then the due date will be bold.
One click highlights the highest priority task that is ready to do.
Tasks can be sorted by set-up so that jobs with similar setup requirements can be batched together..
Staff enter a code to sign for the completed task - and the green light changes to a tick.
When the job is invoiced out of the accounting system, the job is removed from the To Do List and stored for historical purposes.
All staff can easily inquire on the status of a current or past job
The workflow module allows each job to be seen from multiple viewpoints. This promotes better understanding accross the company of all the issues involved in production.
With proper implementation the workflow module will improve internal communication, staff morale and production throughput.
