Increase Output, Reduce Downtime, Improve Quality, Cut Costs, Maximise Profits - Under One Year Payback Typical

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.

Accurate real time manufacturing data is crucial to maximising production efficiency, improving shopfloor management and manufacturing cost reduction.

PlantRun is not a planning and scheduling system but aids production planning and scheduling as each new production run or batch is identified by a unique user defined batch reference. The information for that run or batch, including start and end times and all relevant monitored parameters, can then be stored in the system database against that unique batch reference.

PlantRun has specialised facilities that enable manufacturing knowledge management through its use as a central knowledge base and as a manufacturing expert system.

Problem, breakdown or stoppage? Call for assistance at the push of a button.

Andon is a Japanese term for a system used in manufacturing to alert when there is a production problem in order to minimise any effect on output.

With PlantRun this alert can be made by pressing a button on the operator interface at the asset or may be activated automatically when a system alarm is triggered.

Get accurate live production counting from all your manufacturing assets - machines, lines, work cells, and manual operations - with PlantRun.

Reducing machine downtime has an instant beneficial effect on manufacturing production efficiency and output. However, without accurate information on the real amount and the causes of downtime it can sometimes be a difficult to see how machine downtime can be reduced.

PlantRun systems act as a manufacturing notification system by distributing information whenever and wherever it is needed, based on events and alarms, to enable smoother running of your production operations.

The primary aim is to provide faster response to and minimise production issues.

Real time monitoring of machine speeds provides two main benefits for improved efficiency.

Firstly, it is possible to accurately monitor speeds against target levels for each machine and alert when they are performing out of range.  In particular small variations in machine speed often go unnoticed by operators whereas a monitoring system can immediately alert the need for corrective action to be taken.

Data capture using barcode systems offers enormous benefits for manufacturers. Data capture is faster, more accurate and mistakes are minimized.

With a barcoding system you can easily obtain information that would be difficult or impossible to obtain otherwise. Faster access to information enables better management, better decision-making allowing you to gain advantages over the competition.

PlantRun is a highly effective machine monitoring system for manufacturing production data collection reporting and analysis that can capture any other required operating parameters.

Cost effective, expandable and futureproof

Having accurate information at production level is crucial to drive manufacturing efficiency and lean and continuous improvement initiatives. PlantRun provides a highly cost effective way of real-time production monitoring to enable you to;KPI displays
  • Optimize the use of current capacity

  • Reduce production costs

  • Reduce inventory

  • Increase visibility across departments

  • Improve customer response time

  • Payback typically less than 12 months

(Yes, you can track your manual operations)

If your manufacturing operation includes manual production PlantRun can be used to monitor and track performance, including OEE, in a similar way to any other asset.
