Real-Time Data, Anywhere

Feb. 6, 2018
Lighthouse Systems' MES software delivers real-time information to managers, wherever they are.

Lighthouse Systems, a global vendor of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), is announcing the release of version 7.0 of Shopfloor-Online MES Software. The new application delivers a completely new user experience, with increased configurability, enhanced analytics and reporting functionality. Built to run on any devices, Shopfloor-Online 7.0 supports the mobility of workers in the manufacturing environment without any limitations whilst delivering real-time factory information to managers and executives, anywhere. Manufacturing organisations have the choice to host the MES on premise, in the corporate data centre or in the Cloud.


How a browser independent technology improves the flow of data in manufacturing operations:
A great number of jobs on the factory floor are still carried out at PC stations when these could be done far more efficiently using a mobile device at the location where the activity is taking place. This applies for exampLightle to maintenance engineers carrying out checks and procedures on machines, and quality engineers doing inspection and audits on the lines, or in the warehouse or WIP location for picking, deliveries, receipts and shipping.


For shift supervisors and production managers, Shopfloor-Online 7.0 provides easy access to real-time shift data anywhere on the shop floor, directly improving control level and responsiveness. Management at all levels can make decisions based on key data updated in real-time and 24/7, on their mobile or tablet across a range of KPIs.


Why Shopfloor-Online offers the best route to Cloud MES:
Lighthouse Systems have pioneered web-based MES since Shopfloor-Online version 1.0.  As organisations gradually turn to cloud-based infrastructure, Shopfloor-Online MES 7.0 becomes an even more relevant choice.  With Shopfloor-Online 7.0 Lighthouse Systems is continuing its commitment to delivering a world-class Enterprise MES Platform that enables manufacturing organisations of any size to embrace the Smart Manufacturing revolution through a flexible approach to the digitisation of plant operations, standardisation of processes, and data analytics.
