Digital data collection in 3 simple steps
Step one involves capturing a comprehensive view of production data, revealing current efficiency levels and untapped potential. The objective is to comprehend the dynamics within the production process, highlighting key metrics such as the frequency and duration of stops.
- What's our total production output and the average cycle time?
- How much downtime have we encountered, and what portion of that time was genuinely productive?
- How many stops have we experienced, and what's the average duration of these interruptions
Moving forward involves delving into why these stops occur:
- What's the main reason behind downtime and stops?
Accurate figures detailing the minutes of lost production due to factors such as machine breakdowns, robot errors, changeovers, meetings, and holidays.
It's what we call an improvement compass: providing concrete insights into areas for enhancement. No guesswork – just facts.
In the third step, the focus is on looking forward. BILA DataPower doesn't just provide a snapshot of the past; it offers real-time insights into current operations. By integrating historical and real-time data, you can monitor the facility's performance status and compare ongoing output to expectations.
A unified dashboard visualises the facility's performance, indicating whether production is ahead or behind. This allows for continuous improvements and real-time efficiency enhancements in production.
