Shop Floor Control is based on a combination of Exact Globe and Exact Synergy and ensures that production staff are presented with product orders in a digital, clearly-presented format. As staff are able to enter the data directly on the shop floor, the production records are always up to date. This means that production managers and planners can always take the right decisions based on the right information.
Thanks to the introduction of the ELIS (Exact Lightweight Integration Server) framework, which is discussed in more detail elsewhere in this section, it is now possible for more companies to use Shop Floor Control and thus get a better grip on the manufacturing floor. Companies that currently use CMDM, for example, or that have linked an existing Exact Synergy environment to Exact Globe with a multi-company structure. These companies can now also to take advantage of the many benefits of Shop Floor Control.
