Project Type: Web App (Tablet and Desktop)
Problem: Our client’s supervisors needed to track the efficiency of their workers and find fail points in the assembly of surgical trays.
Users: Those assembling the trays were the primary users, though supervisors also interacted with the app from a reporting and monitoring standpoint.
Proposed Solution: As the supervisors had full-time access to tablets, a mobile solution was preferred over a standalone kiosk or desktop approach (though it would work in either, as well). The idea was to creating a single screen, showing real-time progress of each step the worker(s) would be going through. This included tracking the time, user, pieces being placed, and number of trays within the work order. Each worker is able to see his or her time involved in their prospective step(s), including the expected time of completion.
