Collect data integrating machine status and operator actions
Skilled labor is hard to find, and it is rare to have an employee know how to run multiple types of machines. Through Compass, operators are provided with visual step-by-step setup instructions - displaying critical process tribal knowledge.
Be confident your operators are provided the necessary information to setup and use your equipment. While doing so, with the use of Tracker, you will accurately be able to measure your equipment effectiveness.
Gain Operator Buy-In
You obtain valuable data only when your operators are following a standard process. Give them the tools to minimize their downtime.
Speak their language
Compass will automatically convert step instruction text into the Operator’s language of choice. Right now instructions can be displayed in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese...with more to come.
We’ve developed an interactive “pause” screen giving Operators the ability to alert contacts via text or email. They can get assistance without ever leaving their workstation.
Use Your Data
Communication is the most important element in team-building. Companies that inspire positive relationships are far more productive. This is why Scout Systems put so much effort into making collected data transparent to both operators and management.
Operator’s abilities are only limited by the tools they aren’t given. Use the information gathered by Compass to invest in better equipment, tooling, and environmental conditions.
