Production Monitoring

Production monitoring is vital for the production or manufacturing business when it comes to optimizing efficiency, enhancing productivity and maintaining competitive advantage. It provides the insights and tools necessary for manufacturers to reduce downtime, improve product quality and respond swiftly to changing market demands or operational challenges.

At OEEsystems, we deliver operational excellence in manufacturing through our advanced Production Monitoring capabilities. Our software is engineered to empower manufacturers with real-time insights into their operations, ensuring efficiency in their processes and maximising productivity.

With OEEsystems, businesses unlock the potential of real-time data collection, sophisticated performance analysis and comprehensive visualization, analysis and control.

What is production monitoring?

Your manufacturing and factory managers need to be accountable from start to close. Production monitoring involves continuous on-site production inspection, Real-Time Data collection and process monitoring. Daily insights and reporting on your manufacturing process enables good management and control of your product and processes in terms of quality, productivity and efficiency. Production management ensures product consistency whilst maintaining specifications and improving Operational Efficiency.

OEEsystems are a leading performance improvement software and expertise provider for many factory managers globally under pressure to deliver continuous improvement. In the present challenging climate, performance analysis using production data, quality data, and real-time monitoring is vital to identify opportunities for continuous improvements.

OEE software is an excellent performance management resource for production supervisors, line operators, maintenance engineers, operations managers, and financial controllers. Equipment effectiveness, machine utilization, and real-time monitoring are adequate for ensuring continuous improvement in the supply chain and guaranteeing best practices; OEE software can help your business reap enterprise benefits.

What is the importance of production monitoring?

One thing common among most factories is that problems do occur anytime to affect production. Even for the most organized factory, problems such as poor product quality, accidents, and other setbacks occur. Troubleshooting to fix problems can be time-consuming and affect the production time, so production monitoring software is essential for manufacturing businesses. Although an inspection may offer a quick view of a product during any manufacturing cycle stage, production monitoring offers a holistic view of everything happening throughout the facility.

Why you need production monitoring?

Downtime Tracking

Production and downtime tracking is part of the real time manufacturing process. For example, our OEE software performs data collection from integrated systems and equipment and offers additional user data. The software features include quality monitoring, determining root causes with downtown tracking, automated alerts, notification, etc

Production Monitoring & Control in Real Time

Enable your teams to respond appropriately to issues impacting production with our Production Monitoring software. Track machine performance, production output and quality whilst enjoying a bird's-eye view of your entire operation. Operators can easily identify bottlenecks in real time and teams proactively manage production related issues effectively and efficiently.

Visual Factory Departmental KPI displays

The production monitoring visual factory component presents fit-for-purpose displays/screens that further support efficiency and communication across factories and manufacturing departments. Since production monitoring, like production inspection, can help track total parts created, parts remaining, etc. these screens communicate essential and relevant data to keep your teams on target and reduce delays.

Continuous Improvement Analytics Dashboard

PerformOEE promotes continuous improvement with its click-as-you-think drill-down interactive screens and analytics. Dive deeper into your manufacturing processes with OEEsystems' "Follow the Data" method to help you recognize and explore opportunities for improvement. The additional CPC Module enables production teams to "Lock in your Gains" and identify any variances in your processes.

How does PerformOEE™ meet your requirements?

Short Interval Control (SIC) Dashboards

Integrating SIC into production monitoring can significantly enhance operational efficiency. Short Interval Control (SIC) in manufacturing refers to a process where production data is reviewed at short, regular intervals (often hourly or per shift) to identify issues and implement immediate corrective actions.

By aligning SIC practices with advanced production monitoring software, manufacturers can better track performance against goals, swiftly address variances and continuously improve processes for optimal performance.

Equipment Connectivity & IT Architecture

Designing a total OEE solution is a challenge for most businesses, and OEE software remains a vital piece in that puzzle. The challenge may include IT framework, equipment connectivity, and cloud or on-premise integrations along with other resources, including existing or legacy MES, ERP, QMS or CMMS systems.

Our Approach - The Science of Manufacturing

OEEsystems' Science of Manufacturing is designed by a proven 10-set principle that combines technical innovation with a particular focus on users and culture. Pocket guides are prepared for an easy read with scheduled eSeries articles to successfully deliver programs that promote continuous development based on data-driven technical and cultural development.

OEE Software Benefits

OEE software helps businesses improve their overall final product, focusing on quality, performance, and access. Your production equipment may not meet the highest standard, or your machines are incorrectly configured. In some instances, it could cause some process areas to drag production or defects caused by operator mistakes. If you are not meeting optimum production levels, it may be due to several reasons. Possibly machines are not operating at high levels or overestimating production efficiency or idle times over machine availability.

The availability of your machines factors any time lost due to unexpected stoppages. However, managing to optimize all key areas means efficient equipment, correct maintenance of machines, and good staff training. While these are significant indicators for your business, if your OEE software reports anything less, you will have to take action and resolve any potential issues with your system.

Factory Monitoring System

Automation in the production industry has gathered pace recently, with technology and electronic advancement playing a crucial role. Most industry players are moving to partial or complete process automation based on their requirements and budget. Factory monitoring systems help increase overall production volume, efficiency, and functioning speed.

The system helps determine the machine's state and working capacity. When installed on your shop floor, the system will report the machine's production to custom software.

What refers to the monitoring of actual production?

Production monitoring systems are designed to record overall production performance in real time. The monitoring systems collect production data from various production line sources to managers and staff working on the line. The data collected is then used to enhance production line efficiencies. PerformOEE is one of the most used systems by several manufacturing businesses today.

The system designed by OEEsystems is one of the best software to measure the gap between the potential and actual performance of a manufacturing process or unit.
