Overall Equipment Efficiency IoT Solution:
Voice of the Operator
Your Machines Are Talking – Are You Listening?
Every manufacturing executive seeks to understand where production problems originate and how they can be fixed. If you analyze the data from your ERP system, you may come to one conclusion. But, if you ask the operators on the shop floor, they may tell a different story.
How can you combine the quantitative data from your systems with the qualitative data from your people at a level that scales?
Stop Wondering. Start Asking.
While analytics from your ERP system are excellent for providing insight about what happened during a problem, with IoT, your technicians can provide clarity about why it happened. Adding MCA Connect’s Voice of the Operator functionality to Microsoft Dynamics 365 will give you human context – at a scalable level.
The Voice of the Operator is an app connected to Microsoft Dynamics 365. While IoT and Machine Learning can alert you to a problem before it arises, Voice of the Operator can close the feedback loop by asking the operator to confirm and troubleshoot an identified problem via a Power App. If further action is required, seamless integration into Dynamics 365 enables an operator to issue a fix-ticket to have the machine services, resulting in more up-time and improved quality control. Management can then review the situation and the operator’s assessment of the problem’s causation to avoid similar issues from recurring in the future.
Benefits of Voice of the Operator
Manufacturers can avoid problems from recurring by understanding and resolving the root problem.
Shop Floor employees have a voice to tell management what’s really happening.
Operator insight is collected seamlessly, right within your ERP system.
