Work Instruction

As more and more complex steps need to be performed by the operators and as the diversity of the parts increases, the note book with work instructions provided at each station becomes more and more important and thicker. With  our  Work Instruction module, you can show only the relevant instructions for the current step and part, allowing the operator to focus on what he has to produce. 

  • Store the work instructions
  • Associate the work instruction to the production station for a specific step or part
