Internet-kiosk

The Internet-kiosk gives a simple way for workers to report shop-floor progress. It is designed to be used mainly on tablets or smartphones.

In the Internet-kiosk, the worker sees the list of manufacturing orders assigned to him, including the following information:

  • manufacturing order number
  • product name
  • the remaining quantity
  • the operation description
  • the work station

If the Internet-kiosk advanced mode is enabled, it is also possible to:

  • see the required materials,
  • report serial numbers,
  • access attachments.
