What is Paperless Reporting?

Paperless Reporting has one goal—to eliminate pen and paper reporting.

This tool enables middle managers or admins to export production data out of Amper and in to an ERP or another spreadsheet.

In order to export this data, you first need to collect it. Paperless Reporting works in conjunction with Tallysheets.

What are Tallysheets?

A Tallysheet is a digital tool used in the Operator Interface (aka Amper Outposts). Tallysheets help operators collect data about what they did during their shift. For example:

  • What machine was running?
  • What part was the machine making?
  • How many good parts were made?
  • How many scrap parts were made?
  • Which operator was running the machine?

Without Amper, this kind of information is typically collected manually. With Amper, you can use our Tallysheets tool to collect this data digitally. See an example below:

CSV Output Explained

Below outlines the fields in the CSV and what they correspond to:

CSV Fields

Date the sheet occurred
Name of the Machine
Name of the Shift
Name of the Operator attached to the sheet
Name of the Part attached to the sheet
Text of the "Job" field entered on the sheet
Up Hours
Total uptime hours for the sheet (rounded to two decimals)
Down Hours
Total downtime hours for the sheet (rounded to two decimals)
Part Count
Total good parts
Scrap Count
Total scrap parts
Scrap %
scrap parts / (good parts + scrap parts)
Cycle Time (Ideal)
The target cycle time (currently sourced from the part definition)
Cycle Time (Actual)
uptime seconds / (good parts + scrap parts)
Cycle Time (Entered)
Cycle time attached to the tallysheet. Will match "Cycle Time (Ideal)" if no changes are made and the part has a target. Otherwise, shows the difference between the part-based target and what the operator says the cycle time "should be." Meant to account for variations by machine, etc.
uptime seconds / (uptime seconds + downtime seconds)
(entered cycle time * total_parts) / uptime seconds
good parts / (good parts + scrap parts)
availability * performance * quality
