5 expert tips on how to get the most out of DAKS Customized Operator
Benefit from the experience of other customers! Here are the top five tips of long-time DCO users:
1. DCO as a wizard
Use visual aids to guide your employees safely and error-free through the triggering process, e. g. always use red to mark the next selection step or let the next selection area flash up. Thus, the operator always knows what to do next until the operation is completed correctly.
2. Floor plans and site plans
Where's the fire? If the pressure is high, it's not a good idea to search for the right building section in lists. The quickest way for an employee to identify the job site is by means of a graphical floor plan or site plan and to intuitively select the right area.
3. Overview of running processes
Create a window for currently running and for already completed processes. In this way, your employees always keep an eye on which broadcast calls are in progress and which ones have already been completed.
4. Integrate a touchscreen
In some cases it may be useful to run DCO on a touchscreen. In this way, your employees can carry out the required actions even faster and more intuitively without using a mouse.
5. Confirm activation
Protect your employees from accidentally triggering alarm broadcasts by installing a final confirmation query at the end of the selection options! For example, "Are you sure you want to trigger the broadcast call 'XYZ'?"
