Spix.SKILLS par Simsoft industry


The SKILL Stopwatch allows a user to adjust, start and modify a stopwatch.

A stopwatch can be :

  1. Generic,
  2. Assigned to named element (machine, process, step…),
  3. Present in a work instruction with a setting value. In an integrated mode, the setting value can be retrieved directly from the work instruction.

Several timers can be started and therefore operated simultaneously by the user.


This SKILL offers full functionality if the user has a screen to display information. However, no screen is required.


Not applicable


By default, this SKILL does not require integration into the client application.
For cases 2 and 3, integration into the client application is necessary.
