We have 5-6 users per station at this time. Three of these are
touch-screens the balance being keyboard entry. Three of the stations are
also being used as DNC terminals.

For those that are using computers (not TT-5's) for
clock-in/out of jobs.
Approximately how many workers per computer do you have?

You may respond off the list and I will post results.

We average 9 per unit with out any problems. 10 Shop floor PC's and about
90 employess on our day shift. We do not punch out for lunch. Doing so did
create some bottlenecks in the past.

I'm interested in knowing what else you folks are using these computers for,
be it CNC programming, etc. Also, how many jobs are employees running at
the same time? What happens at the end of the shift when it's time to clock
out for the day and a guy has a dozen jobs going? Or several guys have
multiple jobs going? And some jobs are going to run overnight, how do you
account for the unmanned machine time?

Terry,

We only use the systems for clocking in and out on jobs. We used to have
persons in multiple jobs until we reconfigured the work flow so its only
really possible to work on one job at a time. But they must clock out of all
the jobs or they can't clock out, the system will not allow that. We also
use those systems for the line leaders to access prints and procedures off
our DAT server using the Autoview program from AutoCAD software.

We have 17 data stations on the floor. Both for time and attendance and
production reporting. We view prints in some areas of production but also
print the drawing on back of the traveler. My tool room views up to 30
different drawings related to parts we manufacture using 21" monitors. But
we are not totally paperless we also batch print using AutoVue. Three of my
production stations double and PowerWay SPC datacolletion stations. Manning
ratios go as high as 8 machines to one person. The higher the machine/man
ratio the more Vantage Stations are needed. It's a pain to have to clock out
of every job to go to lunch.
