The time estimation widget in Shift View provides an estimation of the time it takes to produce the current order or batch.
First of all, to provide an estimation for the current order/batch production, it is necessary that you have set a target quantity for the batch you are producing. Otherwise, you will see that the estimation is 0. If Evocon is integrated with your ERP solution, then the target is in most cases provided automatically once the operator has marked the order that is currently in progress.
<aside> ☝ Actual cycle time is calculated on an hourly basis and is updated after every new signal registered by the Evocon device.
The estimation reflects the real progress of production and is affected by many factors.
