Pause and resume work steps

What for

You have an order or work step that should not be executed over the weekend or during the holidays?

You receive an order with higher priority and want to provide machine capacity for the required work steps at short notice?

This function allows you to pause any work step and resume it later.



In the work step monitor(in the detailed view of the machine park), you have the option of pausing the work step currently being executed.

A work step that is already being executed is indicated by a flashing red dot. If you want to pause it, click the "PAUSE" button to do so

With this you have created a work step section.

If you move the mouse over the paused work step, you can evaluate the following additional information:

1. Name of the work step and the basic information about it.

2. Details of the current work step section.

3. The total number of work step sections for this work step.

In the Orders menu, you can get an immediate overview of the status of the work steps.

The paused work steps are also marked for you there.


As soon as you want to continue a certain work step click on the button

"START WORK STEP"and select the desired work step.

You can also start or stop the work step with the documentor.

Why don't you try it yourself?

1. Log in to the smartblick dashboard.
2. Pause one of your work steps 
3. Evaluate the results in the Job Management menu.
