Job Runs represent a period of time when a Job is running on a machine and can include a combination of Activity types. For example, a Job Run can include periods of Setup and Production along with times when the Job was Paused. The Job Runs page allows you to see, edit, and add Job Runs.
This version of the Job Runs page is specific to those customers running Activities, a new architecture for MachineMetrics. Learn more about Activities:

Navigating to Job Runs
From the main navigation, hover over Reports, and select Job Runs.
Adding a New Job Run
There are two reasons why you would create a new Job Run using the Add New Job Run form.
- If an Operator forgets to start a Job from the tablet, you can use this form to create a Job Run that already occurred.
- You can use this form to create a Job Run that starts now.
Information you need when Adding a New Job Run
In order to create a Job Run, you will need to know:
- What Job was or will be running
- What Machine it will run on
- What standards we should use to grade the performance of the Job Run.
Steps to Add Job Run
From the main Job Runs Page, you will see a list of your current Job Runs and an Add Job Run button. To create a new Job Run, select Add Job Run
From this page, you can enter the required information to configure the Job Run, including:
- The Job that this Job Run is associated with
- The Machine the Job Run ran/will run on
- Additional settings and thresholds for the Job Run including: Expected Part-Time, Ideal Part-Time, how Parts will be counted, and if Setup will be tracked.
Next, you will configure the Activities for the Job Run. Because Activities must account for all time, if the end time of one Activity is not the start time of the next Activity, the system will log this as Job Paused.
To add an Activity, select Add Activity.
Select the type of Activity you would like to add, and then configure the requested details before selecting Create Job Run, as shown below:

Editing an Existing Job Run
If an Operator forgets to Start or End a Job Run, you can easily go into that Job run and edit the details.
To Edit a Job Run, select a Job Run from your list, make the desired edits, and then select Save Changes.
How do Operators Engage with Job Runs?
Operators create new Job Runs when they use the Operator Dashboard to start, stop, and pause Jobs. To learn more about how Operators do this, visit the document below:
