The Datagrid is a new type of step you can create in your procedures. As manufacturing processes become even more data-driven, it is a great way to define structured data with clear types (datetime, boolean, string, number, and even signoffs). Datagrids are great in run execution too. Your production team can quickly go through row-by-row and submit data. The Datagrid is highly reliable for analysis processes because of the way it manages data. You can add a Datagrid step to any of your procedures today. Check out this overview video to see it in action.
Purchasing is in beta in ion! Keep your team on the same page and your production process moving with a central place to keep track of your Purchase Orders. With approval workflows and comments built-in, you can coordinate across your engineering, manufacturing, and production teams and make sure you have the parts you need to build your products. Purchasing integrates with ion inventory to provide visibility from purchase to inventory to assembly and installation.
Preview your procedures as they will appear in production. The new preview screen is available as a link at the top of your procedures and renders the procedure as a run in a standard iPad-optimized screen size. This will give your manufacturing engineers confidence when reviewing and releasing procedures to the manufacturing process.
