An Amper Outpost is a Tablet or Computer on your factory floor that will allow your operators to input certain pieces of information about your operation. For example the Amper Outposts contain a module to enter in reasons your machine is not running so you can better perform a Root Cause Analysis on your downtime.
Devices To Use As Outposts
An Amper Outpost requires an internet connection to be used, so the device you choose must have access to the internet. If you already have an existing workstation at your machine connected to your network, that workstation would be a suitable candidate to use as an Outpost. In addition to computers, you can also use an internet enabled tablet to use as your Outpost. For specific guidance on purchasing a tablet, see our article Recommended Tablets for Amper Outposts.
