Global software developer Eschbach, provider of Shiftconnector digital manufacturing software for the pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturing sectors, launches the Shiftconnector Go Mobile Rounds application, which connects field workers with board operators via the Shiftconnector platform for routine actions and compliance management. The application is available for iOS, Android and Windows, allowing workers to report activities directly from their mobile devices to a central location no matter where in the plant they are located.
With its ability to function off-line, Shiftconnector Go Mobile Rounds also gives workers the opportunity to document actions when they might be in a location that does not have cellular access. The information is saved on the device and delivered when access is restored. For security requirements, if devices are shared between shifts, users have a specified PIN or password, which must be applied to access the application.
In a daily scenario, shift workers download a daily task list of specific actions and proceed to specified locations where signoffs on the itemized actions occur. A QR code confirms the position in which the worker is located. As the items on the task list are reviewed, should an anomaly be discovered, i.e., leakage or pressure issue, the worker can record the adverse event (including photo documentation), which is immediately shared in the shift report via the Shiftconnector platform. The information is then delivered to those responsible for corrective action. Evaluation of the action is recorded to assure compliance. Via the Shiftconnector platform, this information is integrated with shift reporting to alleviate any misinformation or omissions during shift handovers.
