The software collects machine data in real time and uses it to compute six central KPIs (key performance indicators), namely Utilization, OEE (overall equipment efficiency acc. to the SEMI standard), OEE benchmark (OEE with regard to the machine’s or line’s theoretical placement performance), component waste rate/cost, changeover time, and yield (after the post-reflow AOI). Customers have access to role- and/or task-based views in all areas of the factory as well as remotely and on mobile devices. The Factory Console provides factory or production managers with a quick overview, while the Machine Console and Line Console visualize detailed KPI information for process engineers and operators. In addition to real-time views, the system can generate automatic reports from various aspects. It also features the ability to set threshold values for targets and alarms that trigger automated notifications and escalations.
The ability to drill down from the KPI overview to trend data and detailed views of individual line components with a mouse click makes it easy to identify the causes of deviations from target values and take appropriate countermeasures. To enable users to take instant countermeasures when KPIs miss their targets, the new factory monitoring solution features its own notification functions. Users can define high and low thresholds whose violation triggers automated notifications of groups of people for each KPI. The regular distribution of standard reports can also be automated. The software can analyze and visualize data from up to the last 24 months, and a log function records the reasons for line stops.
