What you get from using digital Andon

Shorter response times

Tasks get assigned to the right person at the right time based on configurable business rules. This skill-based distribution reduces response times drastically.

No more multiple people going after the same issue

Workload between service staff is automatically distributed. Notifications are only sent to relevant people.

Clear and consistent reporting

Andon calls can provide detailed information for precise issue reporting, exceeding conventional push buttons, such as ‘Missing material’, ‘Amount: 50’, ‘Type: Broken shafts’, and ‘Charge: 2364’.

Fully integrated digital environment

The Workerbase Andon system work wirelessly and integrates with existing machines and systems (ERP, MES and others).

Example workflow

The Workerbase platform is an event driven system, that allows to map any kind of workflow in a simple 3 step process.

Step 01

Event Source

Events can be captured from a wide array of sources. They can originate from machine data connected to the system, from actions of the staff or be timer based. The event sources are freely extendable with new system connectors or even more complex functions.

Step 02


When an event occurs, a range of conditions have to be met in order for an action to get triggered. The conditions can be constructed using simple AND/OR logic and a wide range of data points such a user’s location, previous events’ data or machine data.

Step 03


Workerbase supports a wide range of actions once an even gets triggered, for example: start a new task for a worker or a group of workers. The task is then sent to the staff based on conditions such as people’s location, skill, availability or area of responsibility. Workerbase sends data back to other systems, sends emails, writes to a database and executes any user-defined functionality (serverless functions).

Digital Andon for the agile factory

Industrial leaders use Workerbase`s digital Andon apps to adapt their production in real-time by connecting factory workers and machines into one digital environment

Rolling out a digital Andon system is simple with Workerbase

The Workerbase Andon system can be setup in several ways to fit your individual situation. It can work as a standalone cloud based system without the need to do any integration with your existing IT systems, or you can fully integrate it into your infrastructure. Configuring the frontend and business rules is typically done in less than a day and you can connect your existing IT systems using the powerful Workerbase data connectors.

Use any hardware

The Andon system runs on various hardware, including existing industrial PCs (Windows/Linux), Android workstations/tablets, and iOS devices.

Integrate with buttons

Connect button-based systems or deploy dedicated IIOT pushbuttons. You can set up dedicated hardware for each workstation or group, based on shopfloor layout.

Decide your integration level

The Andon system can run autonomously or fully integrated. Typical installation connects devices via Ethernet/WiFi or bypasses shopfloor network using 4G.

Make sure things get done

In the initial version of your Andon system, set up rules for managing alerts to support staff in minutes. Send alerts based on skills, location, availability, or to groups of people.

Easy integration

Connect input/output systems easily with Workerbase System Connector framework. Connect any foreign system, mixing/matching data based on existing system requirements – without the need for integration projects with suppliers.

Intuitive user interface

Flexibly configure the user’s frontend experience und set up the incident reporting hierarchy in minutes. An intuitive user interfaces ensures you can gather all the data you need.
