Progressive companies today need to better understand downtime and reject causes to improve their manufacturing performance. Automated tracking of this information will increase your productivity and quality.
ProductionACE™ software provides you with real time and historical information allowing management to perform effective root cause analysis. Use ProductionACE DOWNTIME ANALYZER to increase your uptime.
Our Machine Data Transducers (MDT) allow operators to categorize downtime and reject or scrap events easily through a keypad or automatically though direct electrical connection to your machine. The Down/Reject screen shown here provides you with the total downtime by category, as well as reject counts. Each machine on the system can have it’s own set of downtime and reject codes!
“…it was originally thought that this (problem) occurred once or twice an hour. It turns out that it was happening five times an hour with a loss of one hour of production per shift.”
