I wanted to share an application that you can use as a template or example of how to quickly and easily manage work orders as they flow through your operation. Let me know if you want us to drop it in your instance!
What does it do:
This app allows users to record the movement of work orders through a variable number of stations. Associates select jobs in their queue, put them into an “in progress” status, and then complete them. Upon completion, they can move them to other stations or mark the entire job as complete. There is also a dashboard to show where work is distributed on the floor.
When to use it:
Use this app in situations where work orders move throughout a facility but are hard to manage or control. This is a great application for a job shop or where there is a lot of WIP moving around a valuestream with travelers.
