Press Releases For CA - Oakland-Fremont-Hayward (US)
According to manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, in the current issue of Industrial Automation, “OEE is a composite metric, combining machine availability, part quality, and schedule adherence. At best, OEE conflates each of these individual aspects of productivity, and at worst, OEE incorrectly inflates a device's productivity by one of the three metrics, overwhelming the others.” System Insights is profiled as a fast-paced, ever-changing company of automation impacting manufacturing, material handling, and logistics.
Will Sobel, CEO of System Insights, was recently the featured guest on the Manufacturing Revival Radio show. During the program Sobel discussed how real-time collection and analysis can have an immediate impact on business production and can provide predictive data. Business intelligence can change how manufacturing leaders act now, and in the future. Sobel explained, “Before vimana there was not a good way to analyze all the machine data produced every day. There was not a unified way to getting data off the shopfloor. This meant if you wanted to monitor or collect data from machine tools you had to develop a customized interface to each one of those machines tools. Then you would have to figure out how to normalize all that information for the application. It also meant that no one else could use that data. vimana solves the problem of “islands of automation,” by simplifying lots of data using one method.”
