Get Off Paper & Excel

A surprising number of manufacturers still use manual data collection like pen & paper or excel spreadsheets as their primary reporting tools. If you are one of them, Starter Analytics can help.

The Starter package of SensrTrx Manufacturing Analytics provides contextualized manual data collection, calculates meaningful manufacturing KPIs and displays them in actionable dashboards that everyone inside your organization can use on day 1.

Reduce Time-consuming Reporting Tasks

Fully manual data collection is a full-time job for many manufacturers, save your employees and supervisors valuable time assembling weekly or monthly reports.

Report on Downtime

See reporting on planned and unplanned downtime during each shift and track specific downtime reason codes.

Report on Part Counts

Operators can report on start and end counts for their shift or production run for accurate cycle information. This data on can then be viewed in the context of downtime, part # and analyzed against target production values.

Report on Scrap

Reporting on scrap, defects or bad parts allows for more accurate accounting and a reliable quality metric. Add scrap reasons to further indicate the greatest areas of loss during production and reduce costs on the plant floor.
