Kobelco Compressors America

Work order and shop hours collection system
The application provides an ability to assign work based on priority, and critical path based on material availability. The managers can see in real-time the number of hours budgeted for each production task assigned per work category or work order, versus the number of hours utilized to monitor production efficiency.
The Application was created by SimpleCode for Kobelco Compressors America and phases out Epicor Vantage 8.03 MES. Kobelco Compressors America manufactures complex hardware devices (compressors), and the company needed to replace the outdated proprietary software with a custom flexible solution adjusted specially for their needs.


The main screen of the administrative application is aimed at managers. It provides access to 6 modules, and availability of each module is controlled by the authorization system, based on a user's role.


The report screen displays a matrix report of monthly activity for each project and every working category (type of work operation).
