Work Cells

Workcells are the items that are used for the schedule.  Any machine tool, workbench, equipment, or even person can be assigned as a workcell. Once assigned as a workcell, the number and timing of available hours per day can be managed using the schedule to allow unlimited work shift schedules.  Workcells can also be categorized by department, class, assigned standard lead times, and provide alerts when jobs are queued.  Workcells can also be tied in with our Training module with specific training records for equipment operation.

For companies involved in machining, the Workcell module fully supports tool height offset management and direct communication to CNC machine controllers so human entry errors are eliminated during the process of offline tool presetting through uploading offset files into the machine controls.
