Business value

Provides a state-of-the-art and intuitive user experience for process manufacturers and manufacturers that need to report on batch orders. This will make shop floor workers more effective and reduce registration errors.

Feature details

Process manufacturers, and manufacturers that need to report on batch orders, can now take advantage of the production floor execution interface. Workers can use the production floor execution interface to report progress on batch orders, including reporting on co-products and by-products.

Some manufacturers, especially those within the process industries, use batch orders to manage their production processes. Batch orders are created from formulas, which can be defined to have co-product and by-product output. When reporting feedback on such batch orders, the amount of output needs to be registered on the formula item, as do the co-products and by-products.
