Shop Floor Data Capture

Sicon Shop Floor Data Capture (SFDC) is designed for businesses requiring a simple way to record live manufacturing information by allowing shop floor operatives to clock on and off Operations. The Android based App links to both Sicon Works Order Processing and Sicon Projects to allow real-time capture of progress and elapsed time, making this an ideal solution for production environments.

Time captured from the Operations is stored in a centralised Sicon Timesheet, which can also be populated from other Sicon solutions, such as Sicon Time & Attendance, Sicon Approvals, Sicon Service and Sicon Projects. This creates a complete timesheet with users simply recording their activities throughout the day.

Additional functionality available within Sicon SFDC allows users to issue allocated components to Sicon Works Orders and process Works Order Inspections that are linked to Operations or stock items.

Key Features

  • Mobile Integration | The handheld device communicates directly with Sage 200 in real –time using Web API technology, meaning there is no data to synchronise.
  • Easy to use | Whilst the Sicon SFDC core functionality is installed and maintained within Sage 200, the simplicity of the Android App Interface, means users of all abilities can easily interact with the modules functionality.
  • Route Cards | Users have the option to search for the Operation they need to work on directly within the App. Alternatively, where a barcode scanner is present, by printing a route card the user can simply scan the relevant barcode to take them directly to that Operation.
