Measure First

Start realizing continuous improvement with
ShiftWorx™ MES software featuring patented
technology that ensures all-encompassing data visibility.

Machine Connection

Gain complete visibility of your manufacturing operations using ShiftWorx™ MES software. Connect to any process or any machine, regardless of its age, type, or brand and experience the full-spectrum data visualization from shop floor activities.

Activity Monitoring Visualization

ShiftWorx™ MES software uses patented data visualization technology providing manufacturers. real-time KPI dashboards displayed at operator workstation touchscreens and on large screen shop floor monitors. Dashboards and reports are fully customizable; easily create and drag and drop tiles to prioritize visual information.

Operator Narration Input

Operator feedback tells a richer story. ShiftWorx™ MES software solution provides an easy-to-use toolset to record various downtime reasons, show machine utilization and throughput, and identify all quality issues, waste, production capacity and efficiencies. Operators can now proactively benchmark data against the current state and review the data, shift-by-shift.

Production Tracking

Tracking machine, or process activities, can illuminate key areas of machine performance such as; downtime causes and uptime cycles, correlations between jobs, operators and waste. Calculating production yields through SKU’s and work order tracking can be accomplished with real-time machine status and/or operator progress.

Now Analyze

Using ShiftWorx™ MES software data, can help manufacturers
understand performance inefficiencies to reduce leaving
profits on the shop floor.

Manufacturing Reports

Continuous improvement measures are revealed
from historical data. ShiftWorx™ MES software features
manufacturing KPI dashboard and report templates
to provide quick visibility of machine or operator
performance. Create new custom dashboards and
reports specific for your needs.

Examples of Common Reports:

  • Uptime / Downtime
  • Downtime Explanation
  • Counts
  • Status Codes / Time Counts
  • Scrap / Waste
  • Operator Notes
  • Operator Hours per Machine

Advanced Analytics

Dig deep into your data with ShiftWorx™ real-time
logic engine to create custom reports. Manufacturers can
align their raw data to build custom expression reports
in the exact format any manufacturer requires by utilizing
powerful software like Microsoft Power BI. More reporting
options provide an even greater wealth of actionable
insights to Make Smarter Decisions, Faster!

Then Improve!

Once its known where opportunities exist for optimization, specific actions can be implemented to reduce downtime, and maximize organizational communication.

Production Scheduling

Optimization of planned production uptime and downtime
ensures the most efficient operation of machinery, tools, and
processes. ShiftWorx™ MES software production scheduling
module allows you to easily schedule jobs specific to
machines or operators and track the status as activities progress.

Digital Checklists

Go paperless, reduce time and expenses due to shop floor communication errors, and in-turn increase efficiency with ShiftWorx™ MES digital work instructions. Accessible from any device, the Digital Checklist module delivers itemized documents assigned to a specific employee, operator, or team that are tracked to account for activity completeness with required step verification. Digital Work Instructions are customizable and can be created for preventative maintenance, assembly instruction, quality control procedures and more.

Digital Andon

Maximize production uptime and quality control with instant actions and alerts that resolve problems as they happen. Customizable Andon call buttons can be configured to any operator touchscreen; and configured to be displayed prominently on shop floor large screens. Escalate more complex issues by triggering email or text notifications. Easy-to-use and integrate without the additional costs or equipment associated with traditional wired Andon systems.


Problem escalation and production reporting to any device any time. Enable messages by email or Short Message Service (SMS) text messages to send critical messages or to alert when specific criteria are met. Use ShiftWorx™ Notifications module to identify when a machine is due for preventative maintenance, the machine is off, or not performing as expected. Notifications can also deliver reminders or links to ShiftWorx™ MES digital work instructions.

API Integration

ShiftWorx™ MES software features a public API, a powerful tool that allows your machine and process data to be accessible across different systems. API enables you to send data across the various business systems in your manufacturing organization including Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP’s), Material Resource Planning (MRP), Quality Management, and other systems.
