With the OEE Analyzer, you can achieve a lasting gain in productivity and savings of production costs. After just three hours of preparation and installation, the system will deliver the first data on your process. OEE shows you where the potential for performance enhancement lies. You can install it on your main production equipment without increasing the workload on the operators.
Any branch of manufacturing can benefit from OEE. For example, Merck KGaA Darmstadt installed the OEE Analyzer in their packaging department and were able to increase the annual capacity by 14%. The project’s return on investment was 170% in the first year and close to 900% in the following year.
The OEE Analyzer can be used with any kind of manufacturing process, whether continuous or discrete. It works with stand-alone machines, production lines or CNC operations. The OEE Analyzer uses the standardized OEE calculation methodology. You can enter your own models of planned operation, cycle times and can define causes of downtime, rejects and other losses. A wide variety of data collection methods can be incorporated, from any existing PLC or MES (Manufacturing Execution System), from a 24V cycle signal to OPC.
The automatic collection of data delivers exact and objective data and eliminates manual data recording. For training purposes, the OEE Analyzer can also accept manual data inputs. The OEE Analyzer is a real time system. You can call up the current values and analyses at any time and monitor developments in the factory. Often, important indicators are shown live on large displays on the shop floor. Equipment operators soon come to appreciate the insight into the processes, the objective measurement of performance and the labor-saving improvements that are achieved.
The OEE Analyzer is multilingual and runs on common databases such as Oracle or SQL Server. It contains many reporting options. With a free business intelligence software module it is also possible to generate customized analyses and to access data in other databases. The OEE Analyzer is compatible with ERP systems and can become part of an overall MES.
