Checklists are defined and associated with the item/location to be inspected. Using the mobile App the user simply selects the item to be inspected from their To Do List or can scan a bar code or enter an item identification, the user then selects from the available checklists / inspections which are presented.
Images of the item to be inspected are available as are images that were linked to a step on the checklist, for example an image of how an area should look at a step asking the inspector to verify that the area is free from waste and is tidy.
During the inspection the user can capture numbers, text, dates, photographs, comments, signatures, audio and can also record observations at any point during the inspection. Questions on the checklist can record a score based on the answer given. The score can be defined when creating the checklist so that unique scoring methods or calculations can be implemented. A question can force a comment and/or a photograph based on the users response.
Once the 5S inspection is complete the user uploads the results to the cloud where they are available for analysis.
The Inspector mobile App allows 5S inspections to be performed both online and offline which gives the inspectors the ability to carry out 5S inspections in areas of a building or remote areas where there is no internet connection, results are uploaded once internet connectivity becomes available.
