Introducing ProWorks

ProWorks is a multi-user process management tool that enables businesses to deploy and manage the execution of established best practices and industry-specific capabilities throughout their organizations.

ProWorks software allows users to author & distribute work instructions more efficiently than the typical "Office" tools that are most commonly used. The application is geared towards creating rich content with graphical information (pictures & video) and acts as a portal to retrieve and store all process related data.

 

ProWorks' database allows for a true multi-user environment that enables the collection and distribution of knowledge and centralizes all Work Instruction information. ProWorks can share data with ERP/MRP/PLM systems to insure the information on the shop floor is accurate and up to date.

 

Document the Process

One of the guiding design principles for ProWorks is to empower Process Experts (those that actually run the processes) to create and modify the content of the system without having to rely on IT resources.

 

 

Documentation Features

Centralize Data

Create highly detailed, standardized processes that are accessible from a central repository.

 

Reuse Data

Link to existing documentation or existing databases when building processes.

 

 

Simple and Efficient Editing 

Drag & Drop to add pictures, video, CAD files, etc. to describe the Process.

 

Muliple Language Support

Store work instructions in multiple languages and/or change the user interface to display different languages.

 

 

Protect Data 

 

Keep proprietary knowledge secure with watermarking and encryption.

 

 

 

Deploy the Process

Deploying your Work Instructions can be as much work as creating them. Managing revisions, approvals, and distribution can be a time consuming task...unless you have ProWorks. With its built in revision control and approval process, rolling out Work Instructions is as easy as clicking a mouse.

 

 

 

Deployment Features

Replicate Processes across regions

Share database worldwide. Collaborate across jobsites, divisions and locations.

 

Send processes to other facilities

Import/Export for process portability for standalone use or to send process to other facilities or suppliers.

Push-button rollout

Push-button deployment ensures end users receive and use the most current information.

 

Revision control

Built-in revision control; track how processes change and how the changes are published to end users.

Standardized training tool

Standardized training tool for new hires, temps, and cross-training of "best practices".

 

Execute the Process

Oftentimes, with paper-based documentation schemes or even with standard electronic documentation systems, process manuals sit on shelves collecting dust or become buried someplace on a file server. With ProWorks, the system is an integral part of the Process. As users complete each step of a process, ProWorks collects their digital signatures in its database such that processes can be tracked in "Real Time".

 

Execution Features

Record work being done

Pass and Fail condition recorded for each step providing an audit trail for accountability.

 

Troubleshooting database

Build a troubleshooting knowledge-base to provide "step-specific" problem solving tips based on previous failures.

 

Interface external applications

AutoCommands Interface allows ProWorks to be customized to interact with external applications and/or machinery.

 

Track time

Elapsed time recorded at each step to identify bottlenecks.

 

Event Notification 

Email notification on critical events within the Process.

 

Track processes in real-time

Schedule Processes and monitor them as they are being executed.

 

Anaylze the Process

ProWorks provides tools for mining the Process data collected in its database for continual process improvement.

Analysis Features

Track processes visually

Job Summary provides real time job status in graphical format. Colors indicate whether job is complete (green), on-time (blue), or late (red), and how far behind schedule (yellow bar).

 

Drill into processes

Punchlist provides a snapshot of process variables and events. Monitor completion of key steps in a task.

Access with 'other' reporting tools

SQL Server backend allows easy access to data for mining and 3rd party reporting tools.

 

CAR/PAR support

Identify and address systemic issues with Corrective Action ticketing system for ISO.

Integrated 

Crystal Report 

generation Crystal Report Wizard for quick and easy report generation.
