ShopFloorManager's Maintenance Engine automatically imports your DNC Files, Documents, Packets, etc. for Real-Time distribution to the appropriate Applications including VirtualFileCabinets, Resource Collection, etc. Drop your DNC Files, Documents, Packets into the appropriate Folders for Automatic Processing!

ShopFloorManager's Maintenance Engine Imports: CNC files; Documents; Packets

Primer - Maintenance Engine

The Maintenance Engine has four critical rolls that it plays and is the work horse for automatically importing all of your Files, Documents, Packets and UNC & FTP CNC Remote Requests so ShopFloorManager: (html) can process these using EventAware: (html) Technologies for continually Syncing Users & Applications.

It's first roll:

Is to automatically import DNC Files into ShopFloorManager: (html). This is accomplished by assigning a Window's Folder to an internal Resource within ShopFloorManager called a "Resource Collection". Whenever Files are placed into this Window's Folder, let's say by an Engineer, and the Maintenance Engine is running these Files will automatically be imported into the associated Resource Collection(ISO9000 CNC Compliant database). Any Users that have the "Rights" to this Resource Collection can access these CNC Files.

It's Second roll:

Is to automatically Import Engineering & Office Documents into ShopFloorManager'sTM VirtualFileCabinets: (html). Like Resource Collections File Cabinets can associate a Window's Folder to an internal Resource within ShopFloorManager called a "File Cabinet". These Documents can be of any type: Excel, Word, Power Point, MasterCam, etc. Once Imported into ShopFloorManager they can be Securely Managed and controlled to ISO9000 Requirements such as DNC File Revision Control, Histories, the Who, What, When, Where & Whys, etc.

It's Third roll:

Is to automatically Import Packets(a predefined folder structure) into ShopFloorManager'sTM VirtualFileCabinets: (html) and automatically create and populate these Packets with the DNC Files, Manufacturing Shop Documents & Sub-Packets as contained within this folder structure. This flexibility allows an Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer, Manufacturing Programmer, etc. to create a folder structure of Files & Documents outside of ShopFloorManager and imported these into ShopFloorManager which provides ISO9000 Management & Control for all these Packets, Documents, Files & Projects.

It's Fourth roll:

Is to automatically Export ShopFloorManager: (html) a CNC File List Report to a predefined location on the network only if changes occur. This Report can be output in many different formats such as: Excel, Text, Access, etc.
