Real World ThinManager | Part 6

Manufacturing in a Dusty Environment

• As many as 3 PCs failing each week requiring IT and maintenance support.

• Up to 6 hours of lost production time for each failure.

• No moving parts mean that ThinManager Ready thin clients are more reliable.
• Failures can be replaced by operator in 15 minutes or less..

A manufacturing plant had PCs in a dusty environment. The fans sucked in dust and debris causing overheating and failure after about a year. Since the company had 200 PCs, several had to be replaced each week.

Replacement required the services of a computer technician to build and setup the computer, and then the services of a floor electrician to swap the hardware and connect the cables – a process that took several hours at best.

Because ThinManager Ready thin clients are configured in a central location and do not rely on local application storage, any clients that do need to be replaced can be up and running much faster. The entire replacement takes an electrician about 15 minutes.
