Scheduling Application Facilitates Shopfloor Operations
IMTS 2018: Henning Industrial Software has updated its Visual EstiTrack ERP shop management system with the Touch Scheduling Board application.
Henning Industrial Software has updated its Visual EstiTrack ERP shop management system with the Touch Scheduling Board application. An alternate version of the system, Visual EstiTrack ERP Ultimate, has been rewritten using Microsoft’s .NET and SQL server technologies.
The application uses a touchscreen interface to enable users to drag and drop scheduled shop order operations, represented as cards, within and between work centers. The application is designed to emulate and replace the magnetic scheduling boards often found in shops. It is designed for large touchscreen monitors and is integrated into Visual EstiTrack ERP to facilitate prioritizing operations, viewing and setting statuses, moving operations from one work center to another and enabling employees to clock in and out of shop order operations.
The company will also display its iVET mobile phone and tablet application.
