Track production stops, enhance downtime analysis

Check-in is the fast track to industry 4.0

What is Check-in

Check-in is an optional tool for Factbird, which helps register causes for production stops to analyze downtime

Factbird collects data from sensors (for example, number of units produced) and visualizes it on our secure cloud server. You can see the data anytime and anywhere to monitor your production on your smartphone, tablet and PC. Factbird also automatically detects production stops and you can register a cause for each stop to analyze downtime in order to improve productivity and increase OEE.

It is easy to analyze downtime on Blackbird. All you need is to select a cause for each stop on Blackbird Application on a web browser. To make it even more simple and easy, you can use Check-in by pressing a physical push button to associate each stop with a cause.

Each Check-in button is pre-defined with a stop cause, e.g. material delay, packaging jam, machine issue. When production lines stop, a press of a button will automatically categorize the cause on the Blackbird system. When the stop is categorized in the Blackbird system, it can be visually analyzed on downtime pareto graph, OEE waterfall chart, downtime statistics etc.

How it works

Wireless push buttons connect shop floor and a cloud directly

Check-in is an IoT gateway that receives signals from wireless push buttons (Check-in uses Omron push buttons) and sends the data to the Blackbird cloud server via WiFi or Ethernet. Each push button is pre-defined with a stop cause and the Blackbird application automatically register a stop cause on Factbird production data.

Plug and Play installation - Direct communication to a cloud server

The installation merely requires a power supply and internet access. Check-in sends data via WiFi or Ethernet directly to the Blackbird cloud server and works independently of your existing systems.


Wireless push buttons
Wireless buttons are easy to install and rearrange according to the floor layout. It also reduces the troubles caused by disconnection because of no-wiring. Wireless communication is confirmed with a colored LED indicator on the push buttons.
