Live Status

If you only have one Digester or you only have one location selected, you will be able to directly see the real time status of your machine on the Dashboard.

The live status will tell you weight of food inside of the machine, the state of the food hatch door (open or closed), tower lamp status (green, yellow, or red), and the available capacity of the machine.


Utilization Averages

The Average Utilization by Day of Week chart shows the average weight processed by day of the week (based on data from the last 30 days).

You can use your mouse point to hover over any point on the chart to see the exact weight processed (on average) on that day of the week.

This chart can be useful to spot operational issues based on personnel working certain days of the week or to spot ordering/waste issues that result from ordering or processing procedures that occur on a certain day of the week:

The Average Utilization by Hour of Day chart shows the average weight processed by hour of the day (based on data from the last 30 days).

You can use your mouse point to hover over any point on the chart to see the exact weight processed (on average) on that hour of the day.

This chart can be useful to spot operational issues based on personnel working on certain shifts:
