The WORKERBASE Smartwatch increases quality in manufacturing operations by identifying, solving and preventing quality incidents with manufacturing apps. Quality checklists, inspection routines and standard work instructions are accessible at any time on the wrist of operators. This allows efficient collection of quality data in real time and improves transparency about the root causes of quality issues.
The benefits of using a Smartwatch for Quality assurance:
With the WORKERBASE quality apps, quality assurance workflows are provided on the smartwatch. To fully utilize the WORKERBASE solution, the following steps need to be performed:
With the App builder tool app-based quality workflows can be set up in the web browser. There is no programming needed, the visual tool provides an efficient way to create apps. External systems such as ERP or QMS can easily be integrated through REST APIs.
The powerful task management system allows the setup of business logic for quality workflows. For example, quality inspection can be scheduled regularly and can be assigned to defined user groups. By using WORKERBASE IoT connectors, external machine events can be captured. This allows the definition of certain trigger events, e.g. the assignment of quality inspection to a certain user group in case of a defined machine event. The WORKERBASE system takes care of the tasks orchestration based on the defined business rules.
Operators receive task assignments from the WORKERBASE workflow management software. Tasks are either generated directly in the WORKERBASE system or are triggered from external Quality management applications. Operators accept or delegate tasks and provide instant feedback about the status of task.
In addition, operators can start quality workflows on their own by selecting a quality app on their smartwatch. Examples include the Quality checklist app, Defect tracking app or Goods inspection app.
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 theWORKERBASE system. You can access the data in real time to gain actionable insights by using the WORKERBASE analytics functions. Track process time to optimize work organization, monitor completion rates to detect process bottlenecks or identify quality defects to improve machine setup procedures.
