Connect teams on the factory floor to improve productivity

Teams on the factory floor often struggle to connect with management to contribute new ideas and provide valuable input to important discussions. You need a channel that easily connects teams with management, so they can work from the same data and offer ideas to improve efficiency.

 
Improve productivity by creating a Microsoft Teams channel to communicate more efficiently with teams on the factory floor. You can work together on new ideas, find ways to improve processes, or share the latest company news. Include factory machine output and data in Teams for instant visibility into throughput, hardware health and potential issues. 
 
Use Windows Ink to take notes and make sketches to solve design and process issues or annotate existing specs, and create your own 3D models with the new, user-friendly Paint 3D. 
 
Create discussions in Teams about improvements and use @mentions to ping experts to weigh in―or get approval from stakeholders in real time to improve turnaround. You can also track input on machine data towards assessing replacement requirements and potential downtime impact. Plus, you can use Teams on any device, so the floor can easily innovate from anywhere.
 
  • Communicate with the factory floor, from any device. 
  • Get real-time feedback from decision makers. 
  • Secure data, documents, and communication.
