Production companies are faced with the challenge of operating profitably, reducing costs and increasing the efficiency of their existing production equipment.
Among the key requirements are often:
an increase in efficiency
a reduction in downtimes and production disruptions
an increase in production capacity
an improvement in the quality of products and processes;
by reducing scrap and re-work, productivity and usable capacities can be increased
All the above aims can help you to remain competitive and profitable.
An increase in the efficiency of production equipment can be achieved with the aid of the production management functions of the iTAC.MES.Suite. This is based on the integrated production and machine data collection (PDC/MDC), which can be performed automatically or manually via an input client.
The captured data can be evaluated in real-time and analyzed via freely selectable aggregation states. This analysis includes the comparison of planned setup and process times with real times, of required quantities with manufactured quantities (including scrap) and the examination of unplanned downtimes. Key figures such as the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), productivity, utilization etc. are the descriptive Key Performance Indicators.
