Smooth shift operation - Our core competence since 2005! From chemical companies to pharmaceutical compani: Production cycles in plants often run for days and sometimes even last for several weeks. In order to ensure a trouble-free operation in such complex processes, the left hand must know what the right hand is doing at all times. Transparent information and communication processes and a smooth shift handover between the individual teams are the be-all and end-all here. And that's exactly what an electronic shift book makes possible!
The name of our software says it all: Shiftconnector® enables companies to clearly connect all employees. Tasks and instructions as well as events become visible in a shift book and users can seamlessly document special incidents in shift notes. The digital shift book can be viewed at all workstations, so that both shift workers and management have an overview at all times. Ease of use has top priority: Shiftconnector® runs as a web-based system in any Internet browser. It has an easy-to-understand user interface that motivates users to use the system intuitively, thus minimizing the need for training. And last but not least, intelligent input aids reduce the typing effort and thus accelerate the shift transfer.
Another plus: Since Shiftconnector® seamlessly documents the entire process as well as all shift handovers, evaluations and analyses of current shift sequences are easily possible. And even past events can be viewed at any time with our electronic shift book. In this way, frequently occurring errors or plant malfunctions in shift operation can be identified quickly and easily - and in turn, improvements can be initiated quickly and concretely.
For shift personnel, the focus is on saving time. With our clearly designed electronic shift book, plant data and routine tasks can be documented just as easily as any malfunctions in shift operation. Especially practical: After the shift handover, all data from the former shift are available to the following team at a glance.
Shiftconnector® provides shift supervisors with clearly documented shift handovers and a 360° overview of all information, changes and incidents every time they start work. In addition, tasks can be delegated more easily and their current processing status can be viewed at any time.
How are our processes performing and our plants operating efficiently? Quick answers to these important questions are the focus for process engineers. In addition, they can use the digital shift log to issue instructions to employees and obtain signatures easily and directly.
The use of Shiftconnector® also ensures more efficient work for plant management: The clear processing of all special incidents speeds up reporting and meetings. The time- and cost-saving procedure is supported by targeted e-mail reporting based on flexibly definable categories.
What counts for the managers in the plant is the direct and immediate exchange of information with the shift teams, especially on all relevant maintenance orders. Shiftconnector® has also integrated, among other things, a digital maintenance calendar and offers interfaces to electronic maintenance management.
Last but not least, employees in quality management also benefit from the use of an interactive shift book: Thanks to digital documentation in real time, deviations from the specified process can be tracked live and all relevant measured values relating to shift operation and shift handover can be evaluated at any time. In this way, precise instructions or targeted optimization measures can be derived and implemented immediately.
The interface of a digital shift log determines its efficiency in ongoing operations. One of the major advantages of Shiftconnector®: High-priority tasks can be clearly marked and electronic signatures - for example for "read and understood" - facilitate the documentation process. In addition, a search function and filters are available for all lists, which can also be flexibly displayed and grouped. And of course, audit-proof storage of all data is a matter of course for professional shift book software like Shiftconnector®.
Thanks to a flexible database and free forms, the use of the eXtendable Data Concept (XDC) offers optimal adaptability of our shift book system as well as extensive configuration options. Thanks to open interfaces, diverse information can be recorded, lists can be configured as desired and individually for each workstation, and evaluations can be displayed in a user-oriented manner. The type and scope of the plausibility check of the collected data as well as user roles and groups are also flexibly customizable.
We not only develop the software, but also support shift operations in all questions related to process optimization: Starting with the recording of the current state, through the requirements analysis, to innovative proposals for shift handover and documentation, the eschbach team is at your side to advise you with its years of expertise:
