ShopFloorManager's Manage All your DNC Files

Primer - Manage DNC Files

Most discrete Manufacturing Facilities use automated Machinery such as CNC's to manufacture their Parts. This Machinery requires DNC Files(DNC Files) to "Drive" these Machines in its production phase. ShopFloorManager's ShopDNC can securely Manage & Control all of your DNC Files used during the Manufacturing Process including ISO9000 compliance and all of the CNC Protocols & Communications needed to operate your Shop Floor Machinery!

ShopFloorManager supports three different types of "Documents" which are regularly used in Manufacturing. These include Generic CNC Machine Files(Could be Macros Sub-Routines, etc.), Engineering Documents(Drawings, Quality Documents, CAM Files, etc.) and a special type of "Document" which we call a "Packet". A Packet is very sophisticated Container(Can hold Sub-Packets, DNC Files, Help Files & Manufacturing Documents) which is sometimes referred to as a "Shop Floor Operation", "Project", "Multi-Level Task", etc. For quick-view on Packets and how they are uses within ShopFloorManager see other sections within this Windows View.
