j5 Version

In this chapter we introduce a selection of advanced features of IndustraForms including:

  • Carrying data from one IndustraForm instance to the next

  • Importing data from logbooks, other IndustraForms and SQL databases

  • Filtering imported data by area or other Context Filters

  • Summarising and manipulating imported data

  • Creating line graphs and bar charts with imported data

  • Controlling approvals with Sections, Roles and other techniques

To showcase these features and how they can be combined to create a composite solution, we use an example of a Shift Handover. However, these features are used in the design of a wide range of operations management applications.

For the purposes of our example, we assume that our site has two sections, Section A and Section B, and that Section A has Unit 1 and Unit 2.

Section A, Unit 1 and Unit 2 each has its own handover configured with a unique IndustraForm.

The default configuration is used for each handover as shown.
