Data protection & personal rights

It is possible to mute messages with a “pause button” to take employees out of the information flow. The employee has the possibility to control when he receives messages.

There is no evaluation of vital functions (steps, pulse etc.). Furthermore, no GPS data is recorded or evaluated. Only specific selected user groups can access personal data.

The company aucobo does not evaluate the actions of its employees. If and how an evaluation is based on the collected data has to be determined individually. In order to ensure that the personal rights of the employees are respected, an evaluation can be carried out in groups (larger than three persons) if desired.

In order to provide clarity and security to users of the Smartwatches, an agreement should be drawn up to govern the handling of the data. This should be signed by the works council as well as by managers from the production department. In general, it is recommended to involve the works council in the planning before the start of a pilot project. Such a works agreement significantly increases the trust and acceptance of the employees.

Piloting

We recommend a 15-minute feedback session once a week with all production employees. In addition, aucobo will participate at regular intervals in order to consider feedback for the further course of the project.

Employees should be relieved of workloads to make work easier but more efficient. Through improved man-machine communication, the company is taking a step towards Industry 4.0 and is contributing to the future viability of the company. In addition, the utilization of the plants is to be improved by shorter reaction times and self-optimized communication.

Change requests will be checked for technical feasibility and, depending on the effort involved, will be entered as updates during the pilot phase.

The pilot phase usually lasts between 8 and 12 weeks.

The escalation levels are individually adapted to each use case by means of the workflow editor. In case of system malfunctions, the person responsible for the area is usually informed. This person is often the central knowledge carrier and passes on the feedback.

A Smartwatch can be assigned to the employee either personally or to specific areas of activity, so that the Smartwatch can be used by several shift workers, for example. The number of watches varies depending on the application.

This depends on the individual use case and can be easily adjusted using the workflow editor.

In addition to the Smartwatches, we recommend to have spare Smartwatches in stock. This way, Smartwatches can be quickly exchanged if they are forgotten or not loaded.

System specifications

The Preliminary Technical Information Sheet contains general information about the system. You can request this from us.

The aucobo system is platform-independent and can therefore be run on a wide variety of devices. Besides Smartwatches with Windows 10 IoT Core, Smartwatches with Android operating system are supported. Furthermore, both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets can be used.

Usage by employees

Assistance or operating instructions are provided by aucobo to the company’s contact person. This contact person ensures that all members of the user group have access to them.

At the beginning of the project, a production employee is named as the contact person (usually the person responsible for the process) in production. This person also carries out changes in the Smartwatch software. Depending on the status of the project or the license agreement, changes can be carried out by instructed groups of people or by aucobo. Depending on which configuration has to be done, it may be necessary that this has to be done by IT personnel. Minor changes can also be adapted by the departments themselves if desired. This can be adapted individually and in consultation according to your own needs.

The industry Smartwatch can be worn on the wrist (like a watch), around the neck (on a loop) or with a yo-yo roller (e.g. on a belt).
