Jobs in MachineMetrics represent the production standards used in your environment for machine operations. Jobs are used to contextualize machine data in the moment across dashboards and views as well as historically in reports. The Jobs page allows you to add, edit, import, and manage your Job standards in one place.
A MachineMetrics Job must be created for each discrete machine operation used in your manufacturing process for a particular part. For example, if you have a part that takes 10 separate operations on 10 separate machines (lathe turning, milling, and so on), you will need to create one Job in MachineMetrics for each of the 10 separate machine operations. Only machine operations need to have Jobs created for them. Non-machining activities such as heat treatment, layout, and mounting are not specifically tracked in MachineMetrics Jobs unless the Setup Stages feature is enabled in System Settings.
To access the Jobs page, you will hover over Settings and select Jobs. This will take you to the Jobs home page where you can see a list of all Jobs as well as manage each one.
From the Jobs page, you are able to select any Job in your list and perform a variety of functions like:
- Filter and Search
- View Report
Filter and Search
From the Jobs page, you are able to filter your Jobs by the items below as well as use the search function to find other keywords.
Selecting View Report will open the a production performance report for the individual Job. This report can be used to drill down and see how your Job is performing against the standard that you have input. Job Standard Optimization is highly recommended by MachineMetrics.

To Edit a Job, select Edit from the options that appear when you hover over the Job in your list. This will open the Edit Job flow where you can update the details and configurations.
Expanding a Job will show you any Custom Machines along with any standard overrides for the Job.
There are two different ways you can add Jobs to MachineMetrics.
* Please Note: If you choose to automatically add/update Jobs using an integration with your ERP, you will need to use the legacy CSV formatting for that process.
