Parker Factory Display is Next-Generation Solution for Plant Floor Display Applications

July 20, 2009

Parker’s Electromechanical Automaton recently rolled out the Parker Factory Display (PFD) visualization system, providing factory workers with real-time, situational awareness for faster response to downs and non-conforming conditions.

PFD offers unprecedented flexibility and impact for delivering critical messages to associates on the factory floor. Whether presenting Andon display-type information, lean metrics, production status, OEE data safety policies or employee announcements, PFD is much more than a “scoreboard” that simply displays text – it’s like having a supervisor and safety inspector on the floor 24/7.

With its high-definition resolution, flat-panel displays and built-in networking, PFD offers unparalleled visual impact for empowering associates. Its intuitive graphics enhance the message, while its distributed architecture easily integrates into existing manufacturing and IS infrastructure. Whether remotely publishing displays from anywhere via the Web or visualizing non-conforming parts on a production line, the Parker Factory Display does so much more than other production board displays and Andon display-type systems . . . and at a lower cost.

PFD comes with pre-installed with Parker Factory Manager (PFM), a Windows-based software that fully leverages the wide availability of Web-browsing software for remote support and application sharing on the Internet and IP networks. PFM allows users to develop, edit and publish PFD application from any location on a network or anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.
