Shop Floor Control (SFC)

Shop Floor Control (SFC)
Simparel SFC is the simplest path to achieving real-time manufacturing visibility and control. By removing traditional infrastructure requirements and adopting Internet of Things (IoT) technologies for the factory floor, Simparel SFC is faster to deploy and more cost-effective than ever before. With Simparel SFC, everyone from small contractors to major brands can leverage the latest technologies to quickly achieve the many benefits of real-time management and transparency.
Making Real-Time Accessible - The Simparel Difference
A state of the art twist on the decades-old SFC tools generally available in the market, Simparel SFC leverages wireless technology and off-the-shelf mobile devices to collect production data immediately as it occurs and help manufacturers better track and manage orders, productivity, incentive payroll, machine downtime and other vital processes and information. By reducing overall cost of ownership and making SFC simpler to use and deploy, Simparel SFC will empower companies with the real-time visibility and control they need to increase competitiveness and profitability. Simparel SFC utilizes an innovative Android® app and Wi-Fi networking tools to collect production data and provide real-time feedback to workers and managers. This information can be integrated with Simparel ERP, as well as third-party engineering, payroll and other software systems to share, report and analyze production performance. 
Simparel SFC delivers measurable benefits such as:
  • Increase worker productivity
  • Reduce throughput time
  • Improved off-standard cost control
  • Work in Process Inventory Reduction
  • Enhance Customer Service 
Without up to date information and visibility, today’s manufacturers are challenged to deliver the speed, transparency and service their customers demand. By simplifying system use and removing significant cost and setup barriers inherent with legacy SFC systems, Simparel SFC makes real-time shop floor management much more accessible and affordable. By eliminating the requirements for proprietary data collection hardware, wired network infrastructure and complex software tools, the new solution promises to make real-time shop floor control more accessible and affordable to a wider range of fashion, soft goods and other discrete manufacturers.
