Manufacturers can produce the highest quality products at the lowest cost within the challenging constraints of short lead times by gathering valuable data at the machine, assembly line and plant level. Digitization is the way to go with Industry 4.0 as this is key to overall equipment efficiency worldwide (85 percent). Kneo’s MAPP EYE gives you real-time production tracking & control by pointing to production performance concerns and allowing your team to acknowledge them in the right way. Features include OEE performance, faults, downtime tracking with root cause identification, and tracking run time.
Kneo’s MAPP platform provides out-of-the-box reports on OEE. Configuration of reports is easy, extendable and scalable. Additionally, you can take benefit from powerful customization features to customize data collection formula and calculations. All reports can be easily accessed via a web browser across devices. From that, you can easily check out the OEE report and take the necessary actions.
By knowing the average cycle time data, employees and management can recognize patterns for both the fastest as well as slowest cycle times, allowing them to recognize problems in production. The use of this information to reduce cycle times can significantly increase yield and OEE.
To recognize errors as early as possible, quality is guaranteed with spot checks, SPC, and 100 percent tests. This module is one place to create and maintain the product quality control plan and recognize areas for improvement. The system alerts operators in real-time when specific errors occur. It also allows them to act before waste is produced, and it is always online for remote monitoring. It also enables managers to inspect operations across the shop floor in real-time via an interactive dashboard. Plan, schedule, allocate, analyze, and track operator tasks and machine efficiency on the go.
If each and every step throughout the production is mapped and analyzed, inefficient floor layouts can be easily recognized. Looking for more efficient routes for products to travel—or even rearranging the facility floor completely to give a better flow—can help save time and minimize average cycle times (performance), therefore improving OEE.
Implement Kneo’s Online SPC software module, along with the quality module, to:
1. Get real-time SPC analysis to assure your process is stable.
2. React quicker when process irregularities arise.
3. Generate process inspection reports.
4. Forecast the amount of non-conforming product.
5. Minimize material costs.
Removing waste always results in productivity benefits. When your engineers analyzed root causes remotely via a single database, there is no requirement to send your engineers or safety experts all over the world anymore, potentially unlocking remarkable cost savings in time.
Kneo’s MAPP IIOT Platform gives you a clearer picture of the whole factory floor with visual KPI displays. This entire approach can be applied at the shift, operator, or machine group level to “check” what is going on that is impacting OEE.
Knowing where and when the most defective products are generated may specify where machine maintenance is required, which helps to minimize the manufacturing losses. Minimizing the number of defective products generated will automatically improve quality, resulting in an increase in OEE. This way, you can optimize your production capacity and usage through transparency.
