The RTStation is the only ERP and MES solution from a single provider, according to the company. 

The RTStation is a rugged, inexpensive option to replace tablets or centralized computers.  With an IQMS user interface at each manufacturing work center, the RTStation graphically displays machine monitoring details (such as part counts, cycle speeds and other machine processes) in real time, as well as allows operators to print work orders, log rejects for production reporting, display job set-up information and other documents, perform SPC inspections, scan barcodes, print labels, clock in/out of jobs, and more.

Powered by the Android mobile operating system, the RTStation is suitable for expansion with many other types of machines, as well as scanners, card readers and scales. The RTStation’s flexible architecture serves as a platform for custom application and automation development to solve any specific business needs that IQMS’ clients encounter.

Work center operators need a stationary device to input data and access ERP/MES information directly from their work stations.  The RTStation devices are designed to empower operators with immediate data input and are a rugged, inexpensive option to replace tablets or centralized computers.
