Real time data
Operators can also provide direct feedback on damaged material received through the Scrap function. This function allows the operator to see all the material in the open assembly build. They simply touch the screen to select the relevant part and enter the reason for the damage, from the on-screen menu or by typing their comments.
The information is logged to a real-time scrap report. If a trace ticket is required, it can be printed directly at the assembly station via the Sigma interface. The tracking of damaged material allows early identification of production issues with material handling from suppliers, stores, or by operators. The real-time data is available directly to the production engineer for analysis and provides great feedback to the rest of the warehouse team.
Once an operator is familiar with Sigma, they become a more valuable employee to your company. They can be put into any area of production without additional training and perform comparably with your most experienced employees. Brand new employees add value from day one with Sigma to support them.
