A solution for managing workforce, machines, and orders, ShopVue is a shop floor control solution that streamlines production. The system is designed to collect data for discrete manufacturers who are job-centric. The sysem provides visibility of the shop floor in real-time, and can interface with the user’s existing enterprise resource planning system.
The 18 modules of ShopVue include labor tracking production planning, monitoring of machines, component control, and time and attendance tracking. The system’s data collection capabilities are designed to lower costs, make employees more productive, and enhance the utilization of machines and other capital.
A graphical sequencing tool helps improve the planning process for discrete manufacturers, while paperless dispatch functions can help transmit assignments and instructions over the Internet from one user to another. The vendor, Casco development, guarantees an implementation process time of as little as 12 weeks. Casco Development has been producing manufacturing data collection solutions since 1984.
ShopVue functionality can be divided by role in manufacturing organizations - such as plant managers, supervisors, and human resources. Multiple customization and configuration options exist within the system to allow flexibility for adjusting to the preferences of each individual business.
Casco offers services and support for the ShopVue solution through implementation services, customization engineering services (enabling third party integration and other specific additions), training, and other forms of customer support. Casco also partners with other ERP systems to interface with solutions from SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, and others. Casco serves customers worldwide, with headquarters in Portland, Maine.

ShopVue has been an indispensible tool for the collection and management of shop floor direct labor. It integrates with our current ERP system, as well as payroll, to provide time & attendance, vacation/absence time tracking, project labor tracking, and direct labor. The functionality ShopVue provides is so critical to our operation that we have upgraded it to continue working with our new tier 1 ERP application. Also, Casco Development's customer support is top notch. They've demonstrated their position as a partner with us, not just a software vendor.
