All production data (downtime reasons, OEE, quality etc) in Lineview can be monitored in real-time. Or you can analyse it later by accessing previous shifts. The main use for accessing previous shifts is to understand how the production process progressed and what the most important reasons for downtime were. Since shift progress visualisation is easy to understand, it is easy to spot patterns and understand why certain problems occur and why.
The other use is for operators who can enter downtime reasons once shift has already finished. In this case, it is important to minimise ways for data manipulation. Based on our experience sometimes operators have the incentive to change data in hindsight. Read more about how to set time restriction for Lineview users.
