Precise, Context Sensitive, Continuous: FASTEC 4 PRO Online Documentation

All the answers to questions about FASTEC 4 PRO: Comprehensive online documentation is also available with the new release 3.3.7. It contains a large number of useful instructions, operating notes, explanations of system requirements, troubleshooting steps, etc. This applies from release 3.3.5 upwards. This lays the foundation for continuous updating – irrespective of when a future release is upgraded.

In addition to the classic search function, embedded in an in-depth content expansion, context-sensitive help is also offered for special topics. What is behind this? By pressing the F1 key, the FASTEC 4 PRO user is taken directly to the appropriate page in the documentation.

The online documentation supports every user in a simple way to understand the MES and its mode of operation, to operate it professionally and to use it effectively. Anyone wishing to build up additional knowledge has the opportunity to do so in the additional Knowledge section. Here, MES know-how – from an explanation of the OEE key figure to common technical terms used in production process optimization – is summarized in a concise and easy-to-understand manner.

Christian Reusch, Managing Director of FASTEC GmbH, considers the overarching goal of the online documentation to have been achieved: “Our new documentation makes life easier for our customers. It is intuitive to use and is an ideal complement to our extensive personal support. Our customers can also quickly and easily familiarize themselves with the installation of hardware elements for FASTEC 4 PRO. This also applies to the configuration and, of course, especially the operation of the MES.”

Reusch is convinced that the online documentation will lead to a reduction in queries in telephone support. The number of on-site appointments is also likely to fall. Availability at any time, regardless of location, also makes the user less dependent on the service times of FASTEC employees.

“We want our customers to master FASTEC 4 PRO well, securely and as autonomously as possible. This is in line with our philosophy; only then does the use of an MES really make sense for the customer. This also applies to the onboarding of new employees: our documentation helps them to quickly familiarize themselves with the topic, recognize the advantages of FASTEC 4 PRO and master its operation,” concludes Reusch.
