OEE Software Fails to Explain Production Disruptions Reports COO of System Insights
Berkeley, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2013 -- Richard Moran, COO of System Insights, recently detailed one of the deficiencies of OEE (overall equipment effectiveness), namely that OEE software does not provide the reasons for production disruptions. Moran said, “Understanding the causes of production disruptions and losses on the shop floor, including machine breakdowns, poor quality, material starvation, and incorrect operation is essential to improving production efficiency. OEE software cannot do this automatically, but rather relies on operator input.”
vimana Uses Manufacturing Intelligence to Prevent Shop Floor Losses
System Insights’ vimana Manufacturing Learning Engine analyzes data collected in real-time from a wide variety of data sources throughout the shop floor and finds hidden patterns and trends that identify the sources of production losses, and indicate the best strategies to decrease, and ultimately eliminate them.
vimana is the only software product that combines a comprehensive real-time data solution with multi-dimensional, complex reasoning, and machine learning technologies to deliver predictive manufacturing solutions for both machining-based discrete and process manufacturing industries.
Users can understand the causes of production losses on the shop floor, including machine breakdowns, poor quality, material starvation, and incorrect machine usage. With vimana, energy use is optimized and the environmental impact of operating machine tools is reduced. The vimana product goes beyond simple data aggregation, and helps manufacturers increase device utilization, reduce scrap rates, decrease unplanned downtimes, and improve profitability. By improving machine utilization and reducing energy consumption, vimana clients are saving between $30-100K per machine, per year.
