Capabilities

Bring visibility to your manufacturing operation and improve day-to-day decision making.

Unlimited Interactive dashboards. Access from anywhere.

  • Pre-built dashboards help you instantly monitor asset status, machine health, process parameters, and part production.
  • Visualize, monitor and optimize asset performance based on Digital Twin of your plant and processes.
  • Build custom dashboards with drag-and-drop capabilities for specific use cases, personas and processes.
Implement and monitor KPIs that are relevant to your business and stakeholders. Select from a catalog of metrics beyond OEE – to include:
  • True OEE, based on machine learning algorithms for a dynamic calculation of your overall production effectiveness.
  • Staffed utilization that measures asset utilization only when an operator is present and workload is scheduled.
  • Additional productivity metrics such as part count, production cycle time and utilization.

Digitize work processes for better communications, collaboration, training to enable improved performance and employee satisfaction.

  • Customizable ‘operator’ user interface provides an actionable, single pane of workstation information and real-time performance so operators can self-manage and make informed decisions.
  • Digital logbook enables paper to digital migration, capturing the history of a workstation’s issues and comments for smooth shift handover and tribal knowledge sharing.
  • Tickets communicate operational issues and requests across the workforce for rapid, closed-loop problem solving.
  • Automated work instructions provide device or process guidance based on activity and sequential operation to improve operator skills, reduce errors, and improve productivity of new and existing employees.

Combine real-world advanced analytics, machine learning and AI to generate knowledge that improves asset utilization, maintenance strategies, quality, resource productivity, and manufacturing flexibility.

pre-built reports

Reveal insight into what happened, for how long, and why it happened. Uncover performance variation, hidden patterns, and drill- down insights into your manufacturing operation. Identify and eliminate waste.

custom reports

Enable visualizations that answer your operational questions and deliver the data the way you want to see it. Track production status, compare shift coverage and uncover root-cause of variation in conditions that could impact quality, utilization and downtimes.

machine learning and artificial intelligence enabled solutions

Predict equipment downtimes and machine faults, quantify measurement bias in reducing scrap and re-work, and analyze tool usage for optimizing tool changes.

customizable alerts and notifications

Automatically and proactively notify engineers in real-time on process parameters thresholds, idle time and machine faults.

Extend industrial processes to the supply chain for expanded insight and business impact, while adding value to your existing software and platform investments.

  • Download data for additional analyses by downstream systems (PowerBI, Tableau, Excel, SAS, etc).
  • Use APIs and connectors to integrate contextualized equipment and operational data into other systems (MES, ERP, APM, EAM, CMM, SCM, etc) to streamline workflows, minimize redundancy, and automate manufacturing and business processes.
