Pros: Easy to create an audit form and quality check list;

Can create work instructions for a tablet

Save automatically every modification;

Cons: The translation is working with Google translation so I need to review it. This helps to speed up the creation process but it is good to double check.

Very helpful from continuous improvement point of view.

Pros: Pretty much user friendly, easy to build instructions for the operators and also easy to learn how to use it.

Cons: Lots of mistakes about the french translation, specially when we're trying to close a work order. Also impossible to set up manually an affected quantity to 1 unit. It's also impossible to cancel a non-conformity report in case of a mistake, impossible to go back during production. Lot of things that makes VKS hard to use for the operators during production.
