Remote Factory Floor Visibility

Reviewed a year ago

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.

Makes a difference right away

Reviewed a year ago
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.

Shiftworx - Machine Monitoring software for KPI Tracking. Good Idea - Hard to roll out.

Reviewed 7 months ago

We wanted to reduce idle time due to SETUPS and WAITING (for information, materials etc) We started to collect the data for baseline and then set goals to conitnuously improve. The daily reports were so flawed due to the apathetic machinists we soon gave up. The software is fine.

Pros

Easy to setup and and install the hardware and software. Had few outages. The concept of tracking machine metrics is not new, made sense for the management and production staff to use a cloud based system rather than paper reports.

Cons

*Note we stopped using this over 2 years ago, I assume progress has been made since.. The fundamental flaw in this concept is it requires production staff to immediately manually log in and select reason codes for inactivity. If they do not then the data is inaccurate. We were unable to coax staff to do this, so we did not ever get the value from it. I would only implement this type of software if: a)...

Shiftworx Review

Reviewed a year ago

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.

Shift work

Reviewed a year ago

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 .

Real time data is key

Reviewed a year ago

We have focused on downtime issues. Finding out where the problems are and correcting them as needed.

Pros

The reporting and scheduled reporting makes it easy for our Group Leaders to provide updates to management and employees.

My first 4 months using Shiftworx

Reviewed a year ago

A. It was really easy to deploy. Any roadblocks I hit the support team was great. B. It is daunting at first when looking at the all of the available data and reporting and KPI options. After using it a little bit and understanding the setup of different data source collection on a machine it was great. C. API use allowed us to integrate it in ways we never could have imagined up front.

Pros

That it allows operators to do their work and get their input into the improvement of the workflow process. It did not impede their work productivity.

Cons

It wasn't the softwares fault but making work definitions was slightly different to my processes but once I understood everything was great.

Feature rich management system with exceptional ROI

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Easily deployable by anyone with reasonable ability to follow directions. Dashboard visuals require less setup than many other systems and are focused around real business needs. The price is extremely affordable and you're not forced to use proprietary hardware beyond that which is needed to communicate to the cloud backend.

Cons

Please continue to expand the industrial protocols you support. A lot of people that are looking at this system don't have modern machinery and therefore would benefit by support for modbus/tcp as well as proprietary protocols to machines/control systems.

Understanding the reasoning behind our downtime improves the efficiency of the machine.

Pros

Measuring the efficiency of a machine is critical to our business and then being able to understand the reasons behind downtime improves on our efficiency.

The technical expertise in Australia is limited. When we want a capable service technician it almost impossible without getting a third party involved.

Improving production downtime using concrete data

Reviewed 7 months ago

The overall experience is pleasurable. The technical support we receive is always second to none. The team at ShiftWorx is always willing to help - even to the point of designing or redesigning aspects of the software to make our company more productive.

Pros

Cons

If we've came across something we feel ShiftWorx has lacked, their team was there to listen and design a fix that has met our needs.

After the initial set up, everything has been running rather smoothly. It's great that I can access the real-time data via the web-based dashboard.

HABCO - Engineering Manager Review

Reviewed 7 months ago

The support has been great that's the biggest comment I have. I wish I had more dedicated time to work with it.

Pros

The idea of this package is great. I like that the program is very easy to use and the amount of options is really great, as an engineer I like the way I can tinker with it.

Cons

I have not used it enough to comment on cons. I do have one item I can't get working but I have not reached out to Shiftworx to see if they have any input to rectify.

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.
