SFX automates and streamlines factory operations by combining three popular applications around a core of Shop Floor Data Collection: Labor Management, Machine Utilization and Paperless Dispatching. The execution-oriented combination provides the essential tools for real-time production process management. SFX handles the high volume of detailed information about production activities and feeds the Enterprise system just the essentials to keep it functioning properly and improving the timeliness, accuracy and reliability of the enterprise data, adding to the ERP system's value.

Manufacturers, particularly those with high transaction volumes and high labor content, have found that SFX delivers significant benefits to the operation, IT staff, and business. Shop Floor Execution (SFX) automates and streamlines factory operations by combining three popular applications: Labor Management, Machine Utilization and Paperless Dispatching.
