Remote Factory Floor Visibility

Overall, the product was easy to install, customize and use to monitor and identify ways to improve productivity.

Pros

Especially during Covid when travel to our 4 factories was restricted, the Shiftworx software was very instrumental in allowing me to monitor the progress that our manufacturing equipment was making. The software also allows you to quickly see variances both over time and compared to similar equipment and take corrective actions if needed. The Shiftworx software and freepoint hardware allowed visibility to our oldest and newest machines including Oxy fuel flame cutters, Blanchard Grinders and CNC milling machines. We have made an overall machine efficiency improvement of 15% in the last 2 years using shiftworx to monitor the progress.

Cons

Integration into our manufacturing processes was fairly easy. and we have moved the hardware to new machines when making changes and the software was easy to make custom reports.

Shiftworx Review

Overall I am satisfied with Shiftworx. We using the Lite version and hope that in the future we can expand to have more capability.

Pros

Ability to effectively display production information real time and quickly identify/correct issues as they arise. Also really like the "Time Shift" functionality that has been brought back from previous versions.

Cons

When using the same KPI in multiple layouts they are not linked and therefore takes time to update the information multiple times. That's all I can think of at this time.

Brake Press Review

Good software, not made for our application.

Pros

Great job reporting the data, once the formats for reporting are generated. Took a while to get it up and going, but the team was great working with us to get to that point.

Cons

Install on our presses didn't work. Took three tries. Again, customer service was very helpful with this process. Found a lot of quirks in the reporting

Makes a difference right away

Pros

This simple to use software drives performance on the shopfloor right away. It allows for simple metrics that drive bottom line results. I saw immediate changes to how our machinists decided to process jobs as they got visual feedback of the importance of spindle uptime. At a glance I can see what has happened in the last 24 hours and understand our performance - and so can everyone else in the company.

Cons

Sometimes accountability can be threatening. Care needs to be taken when rolling out this software to keep the tone positive. This risk exists with all products in this space and Freepoint does a great job of presenting the data in a positive way. They help drive engagement to overcome this potential risk.

Shift work

Collecting all data from the operators like downtime or real time spindle run . Which could help us with scheduling jobs or meeting customer satisfaction .

Pros

The product is very easy to use , the best thing I liked about the product is that I can monitor all the spindle time on every machine from the cottage or from the office at work .

Cons

Some features I would like to add are scheduling jobs specifically to a machine / operator with real time data .
