What is it?
KeyLine is a free, open source software package you can download for free. It allows you to easily set up cheap, off-the-shelf tablets (and optionally, barcode scanners) on your production line to record job status and other activities as they happen.
For example, let's say you have a four machine process so you set up four tablets, one for each machine.
As a batch of product moves from one machine to the next you simply scan the job ticket into that machine. This indicates that it's waiting to be run. Later, when that job is going to be run, you can scan it again to indicate it's been started. At the end of the process the material can be scanned as complete by scanning it into the same tablet again or into the tablet at the next station.
From this simple process you can now get instant status updates on individual jobs without having to track down where a job is on the line. Once you've used the system for a little while you'll have valuable data points that can be analyzed do determine opportunities for improvement, or turned into charts to foster competition, create data-based performance evaluations, whatever you need!
At Workflow Products, we know that great solutions don't have to be expensive. In fact, the more value we can provide for a dollar, the more projects you'll bring to us! We hope you get great value out of KeyLine. If you ever need anything added or want to integrate it into your existing systems, we hope you'll give us a call and let us compete for your business.
