The software allows manufacturers to make informed decisions about manufacturing processes and identify ways to drive operational improvement. It provides visibility into factors such as equipment downtime, changeover effectiveness, waste and line efficiency, and supports root-cause analysis by automatically linking downtime events to a specific causes in real time. In addition, it calculates KPIs and enables the creation of ad-hoc performance reports that can be shared via the Web to help continuously improve production. The software is beneficial for clients with a need for rich MES capability, but must optimize investment and rapidly prove value due to limited IT/Engineering resources, says the vendor.
