The FabStation software operates in real-time and is continually connecting to the server to keep project data updated.
When using a mobile device in a manufacturing environment, these updates can be affected by the wireless connectivity. An update that takes a minute in the office may take 2-3 minutes on the shop floor.
Ways to improve system performance:
- Provide additional Wireless Access Points (WAP) on the shop floor
- Synchronize device before heading out to shop floor
- Consider tablet with LTE for more remote areas
- Check to make sure the the Wifi icon is green at all times.
