Feedback needed for the shop manager dashboard

In November 2018 we are planning to release the shop manager dashboard to all users. With the help of your feedback we hope to further improve this innovation. We need you for this!

The Shop manager dashboard is a screen in Exact for Manufacturing that shows who is working on which work centre. This way the shop manager can view which work centres are currently used, if the right shop orders are being worked on, and what progress is made time wise (did we just start, or are we near to finishing).

The data on the Shop manager dashboard is based on the Smart Shop Floor app that is used by employees to clock in and out on an operation/work centre. It is our intention to make the APIs for clocking in and out also available for connectivity with machines and other software apps. If you are not a user of Smart Shop Floor yet: each subscription comes with one free Smart Shop Floor user, so you can test the Shop manager dashboard without adding extra users to your subscription first. Read here to set up a user for Smart Shop Floor.

Working with the Shop manager dashboard

To work with the Shop manager dashboard you should first check whether you have been assigned the appropriate role. Only then you will be able to view the menu path [Manufacturing] Time reporting, Shop manager dashboard.

View by work centres

The Shop manager dashboard has two view modes: by work centres and by employees. With the view mode by work centres we see on which work centres is being worked at this moment, by whom and on which order. We also see the progress (Time elapsed and Time remaining). With the filter on the right side of the screen we can select a production area or a number of work centres:
