Today, managers communicate their plans to operators in the field via phone calls, morning meetings, or lists on note pads. But those inconsistent, time-consuming methods can lead to miscommunication and costly errors or delays. It is time to replace lists and phone calls with the Jobs Panel and various jobs tools in the John Deere Operations Center, which work in conjunction with the MyJobs app on a mobile device.
Value in brief:
A job is simply a complete list of all tasks with all the necessary instructions to execute the job accurately—Right product, right field, right time, and right settings. From the Operations Center in the Job Panel, managers have the ability to create, prioritize, edit, delete and complete a job. The MyJobs app is used by the machine operator where the instructions from the manager are received as entered in the Operations Center. The MyJobs app helps the operator enter the information in the display exactly as it was planned by the manager. Back in the Operations Center, the manager can track the progress of completion of the jobs being performed in-fields and make adjustments to the job.
