Flexible task assignment to increase productivity

The WORKERBASE Smartwatch increases productivity by transforming paper-based processes into fully digital workflows on the smartwatch. Our powerful workflow software assigns tasks to individual users or user groups, along with step-by-step instructions on how to fulfil the task. Go paperless to make shop floor operations more flexible and to improve productivity!

The benefits of flexible task assignments with the Smartwatch

Flexible coordination of tasks

Optimize individual processes as well as the overall process flow, e.g. support SMED to reduce machine set up times with parallelized work instructions

Improve operational efficiency

Replace paper-based workflows with digital work instructions

Increase process visibility

Immediate feedback on production status

Features of task management with the smartwatch

Flexible task assignment

Parallelize tasks and split up work across teams.

Standard work

Step-by-Step instructions on the smartwatch

Photo and video instructions

Display work procedures with text, audio, photo and video

Visual AppBuilder

Create app-based workflows directly in the web browser by using the App builder tool. No programming needed – speed up the creation and modification of standard work.

Flexible configuration of multi user workflows

The WORKERBASE standard work app displays step-by-step standard operating instructions on the smartwatch. The creation of a standard operating procedure can be done with the WORKERBASE AppBuilder.

How does flexible task assignment work?

With the WORKERBASE system, tasks along with workflow instructions are provided on the smartwatch. To fully utilize the WORKERBASE solution, the following steps need to be performed:

  1. Administrators configure the rules for task assignments and work instructions in the WORKERBASE system
  2. The WORKERBASE system then orchestrates all workflows
  3. Operators get task assignments on their Smartwatch
  4. Operators fulfill the assigned tasks, all workflow data is collected in the WORKERBASE system

Configuration of tasks and work instructions

Create app-based workflows directly in the web browser by using the App builder tool. No programming needed. Speed up the creation and modification of standard work instructions, work routines and standard work examples. Bring them as a step-by-step instruction with images and video on the smartwatch. For example, an assembly instruction would incorporate a three-step workflow with assembly instructions and pictures while an approval workflow would consists of a barcode scan screen and approval button.

Create business rules for flexible task assignments. This includes the definition of  trigger events which initiate the task assignment, e.g. a trigger event could be a completed workflows or user feedback. For example, a completed assembly workflow triggers an approval workflow. If user John completes the assembly workflow on his smartwatch, user Jenny would receive the Approval workflow on her smartwatch.

Orchestrate workflows

Split up work procedures in multiple tasks and flexibly assign tasks to multiple workers. The WORKERBASE task management system takes care of the tasks orchestration based on easy to setup business rules. For example, you can create approval workflows or parallelize tasks based on defined criteria.

Assign tasks

Workers get task assignments from the WORKERBASE workflow management software together with a sequence of step-by-step instructions which they have to fulfil. Tasks can either be generated directly in the WORKERBASE system or can be triggered from existing line of business applications. Your workers can accept or delegate tasks and can provide instant feedback about the status of task. For example, a quality inspection work instruction would ask the quality inspector to take a picture and select a value from a value list on the smartwatch.

Collect data for process improvements

All workflow data is automatically stored in the WORKERBASE system. For example, the picture and values from the quality inspection app would be instantly transferred to the WORKERBASE system. You can access the data in real time and use the analytics functions to gain actionable insights:

Track process time to optimize work organization, monitor completion rates to detect process bottlenecks or identify quality defects to improve machine setup procedures.
