SUPPORTING CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT – EVERY DAY

All businesses rely on correct and timely information to support decision making. But decision makers at different levels within an organization require different kinds of information.
PlantPerformance compiles data from all areas of the business according to the needs of the user. This makes it the perfect support tool for lean and continuous improvement initiatives – whether you’re working with kaizen, waste elimination (Muda, Mura, Muri), PDCA (plan-do-check-act), TPM (total productive maintenance), or any number of other lean activities.

SEE HOW PLANTPERFORMANCE CAN HELP INDIVIDUAL PRODUCTION GROUPS WITH THEIR EVERYDAY TASKS

With PlantPerformance, operators work in a ‘clean’, intuitive and touch-friendly environment. Their screen shows the OEE status of their machine (or line) and a Gantt view of the machine’s (line’s) availability.

The operator can easily indicate stop reasons for a diverse range of machine stoppages, as well as keeping an electronic diary (logbook) about production events. All of this information can be used later on for producing shift or daily reports. Product rejections are reported using the same screen.

The operator’s screen also shows specific instructions from production management (Targeted information). They can also make use of electronic post-it notes for temporarily saving production related information.

A large-screen monitor displaying a custom-designed dashboard is always visible on the production floor. This allows employees to follow live OEE status and deviations from targets, etc.

OEE status is shown in real time on a standard or custom-designed OEE dashboard. Group leaders can send messages to specific operators or shift teams (Targeted information). They can also compare actual production rates against set targets, as well as access shift and daily reports, etc.
