Using the ShopFloor operator display

The ShopFloor execution screen presents per chosen resource 3 sections with production order operations:

  • Orders processing (Running)
  • Orders queing (Waiting)
  • Future orders (Arriving)

This is an excellent way to get an overview on what is going on a machine, a group of machines, a person or other resources.
