In complex and competitive global markets today, is more vital than ever to maximise the effective use of manufacturing equipment. Improving shopfloor management and operational visibility is now a requirement for leading manufacturers and the status quo no longer justifiable.
PlantRun shop floor data collection systems (SFDC) provides a powerful tool to facilitate the task of collecting machine data from any type, make or age of asset. It gives you live real-time production data including OEE, analysis tools, reports and alarms to support lean manufacturing and continuous improvement.
In a typical installation shopfloor data is captured to a central PC server over Ethernet network from compact rugged outstations sited adjacent to each asset . Outstations feature keypad and display for operator interface, input for asset run/stop and product count signals.
Outstations allow shop floor staff to interact with the system without leaving the production area to;
- Log on and off - track operator efficiency
- Select product, job/works order
- Select downtime/stoppage reasons - unlimited reasons on a per machine basis
- Enter scrap/rework - accurately track scrap
- Call for assistance – engineer/team leader/materials/tool setter etc.
- Read off target and actual production
Comprehensive range of ready to use (and customisable) reports built in.
SQL database option for data exchange with ERP/MRP/CMMS etc.
PlantRun shop floor data collection systems can also record any process parameters that may be crucial to your production or maybe be required for customer proof of process reporting. These include temperature/pressure/humidity etc.
Specifically designed to be cost effective, current users report typical payback period of less than twelve months.
