The data entry screen fully integrates with the automatic machine data collection allowing for data collection rules to be used in real-time across all sources of data. Using the data entry screen, data such as downtimes and part numbers can be entered, OEE dashboards can be updated, and emails and text messages can be sent, along with a variety of other functionality.
The data entry screen also serves as a display to view the current status of the equipment providing real time feedback to the operators.
