The OmniFab PDC module is integrated into the machine‘s Global Control. It also runs on all connected devices that have a web browser, such as tablets or smartphones.
With OmniFab PDC you generate complete, up-to-date and reliable data for production control.
Machine operators use OmniFab PDC to record setup, production, loading and unloading times, number of parts produced and scrap, the actual plate used and the actual material usage. The result is transparency and traceability of the process.
In combination with OmniFab Job Management, the production results are visible in real time for production planning.
Once the operator has completed a job, this information is displayed directly in Job Management. If problems occur during production, the operator sends a message to the production planning department so that it can react immediately and reschedule or re-nest the jobs.
For all completed jobs, the web-based OmniFab Production Data Review view provides an overview of all reported production data. This allows you to control and adjust production results and ensures that you always have reliable data in your system.
