Factory data capture software in usage - COSMO CONSULT

Making precise calculations with factory data capture

With cc|factory data capture you can always keep an eye on what is going on on the factory floor. The software helps you to monitor production processes and identify deviations. At the same time, historical production data is a good basis for sustainably optimizing process organization. You can benefit thus from a clear view of the current situation and can analyze costs and earnings at the level of orders or production.

Industrial plants, machine and plant construction, service and assembly companies - as different as these businesses may be, they have one thing in common: they are all dependent on exact operating data. This is the only way to analyze the workflow, material flow and value flow transparently and comprehensibly. Without data capture, companies would have to do without important controlling instruments such as post-calculation, in part or in full. With cc|factory data capture for Microsoft Dynamics NAV you can make use of your operating data directly in the ERP system.

Suitable for all relevant operating data

The main task of factory data capture is to measure how much input is consumed by operational output. This includes, for example, energy and material consumption, personnel time or data from machines, such as quantities. The cc|factory data capture module brings together relevant production data and makes the information available in Dynamics NAV, for example in the context of the production, project, service or assembly modules.

In addition to the automatic data transfer between the production machines and the ERP system, you can also enter relevant information manually. A terminal input mask is available for this purpose, which can be supplemented by QR or barcode scanners if required. It is also possible to do several tasks in parallel. This is useful, for example, if an employee is responsible for several machines at the same time running different orders in parallel.

In addition, the factory data capture system is equipped with a simply structured timekeeping system. This means that operation and user guidance are the same in both fields. Alternatively, existing timekeeping systems can be integrated via an interface. There are already standard connections for many common solutions.

Do you have any questions?

Flexibly capturing and processing operating data

Through the seamless integration into the program structure of Dynamics NAV, the recorded times, quantities and status messages are automatically transferred to the ERP system and posted. Efficient plausibility checks ensure that the data transfer runs reliably and without conflicts. Operational data can be transferred either periodically, cumulatively or in real time.

You are also in complete control in terms of content. You determine what information cc|factory data capture makes available. In addition, you can limit data exchange or provide additional information - for example, process parameters, quality labels or result codes. There is no limit to the number and scope of further data capture dimensions.
