MACHINE MONITORING TO INCREASE UPTIME
REDUCE MACHINE DOWNTIME INCREASE OVERALL EQUIPMENT EFFECTIVENESS (OEE) OPTIMIZE WORKFLOW
The ability to see, in real-time, the level of productivity from each machine from your shop floor essentially closes the gaps, both in manufacturing processes and communication between machine operators and managers. SecoVision uses Internet Of Things (IOT) connectivity to provide a cloudbased machine monitoring software so you can track Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and identify production bottlenecks. The mobile friendly software allows you to access your (encrypted) data from anywhere with a secure connection from your mobile phone or home PC without IT support or complicated firewalls and VPNs. The robust system
measures the effectiveness of the improvements you make as a result of your new vision – in many cases 20% or more.
UNDERSTANDING REASONS FOR DOWNTIME
Knowing why machines are not running is key to understanding downtime and utilization problems. Fundamentally, any unplanned stoppage – whether its due to issues regarding materials, personnel, maintenance or an equipment breakdown – are considered downtime. Since SecoVision is a dynamic solution, common reasons such as part changeovers, tool changeovers or even breakages can be automatically categorized from machine data to more easily identify and address in the future.
SIMPLE HARDWARE TO SUPPORT CONNECTIVITY
Tablets, a machine-specific interface and gateway are all that are needed, plus a single gateway can connect multiple machines. Purchase costs are low and installations can be accomplished quickly with little interruption, we even offer a self-integration option. With SecoVision, you can start collecting data in minutes from networked machines that have MTConnect or OPC UA and from numerous CNC Machine controls. All data is encrypted to ensure the highest level of security and privacy.
Real-Time Dashboards give workers the information they need to make decisions that drive improvements. Simple color-coding provides an
at-a-glance indication if the job is performing at or below expectations (against Parts Goal or OEE metrics) and is measured in real-time. The shop floor dashboard is often installed on monitors across the shop floor. At the machine level, a touchscreen with an intuitive program asks the operator to categorize downtime as it’s happening, and allows this information to be made available in real-time to specific individuals and managers. SecoVision can also integrate with other types of software, including the ability to tie into a manufacturer’s production goals and ERP systems.
THE HUMAN ELEMENT
Operators can add their individual context allowing them to categorize downtime, reject a part, and start/stop jobs right from the machine to manage and record data. This qualitative capability is unique to SecoVision. For any job that
falls behind or machine that goes down, a text or email notification can be sent giving managers who aren’t on the shop floor the information they need to take immediate action. Alerts and notifications are entirely customizable, allowing you to notify the right person at the right time when an issue arises.
REPORTING AND ANALYTICS
Knowledge is a powerful driver of your shop floor productivity. SecoVision provides relevant and useful information in many forms including: • OEE Performance Reporting • Quality Tracking and reporting • Machine Utilization Reporting • Job Setup/Changeover Tracking • Detailed Machine Production Analytics • Detailed Part Number and Job Analytics
Although SecoVision is a userfriendly and intuitive solution, it is also robust and sophisticated. Software updates are regular to ensure top level functionality. If customers require it, we offer training on software and goal setting, as well as IT support.
