Keep track of running tool costs by integrating with tool management systems. The system natively identifies the efficiency of tools based on machine utilization and feedrate overrides. Quickly identify problem areas in a program or process based on these basic metrics.
Real-time downtime categorization actively interacts with operators to specify significant periods of machine downtime.
Define what "significant downtime" means to your shop:
- Set alert threshold
- Configure custom downtime reasons
- Cascading Reason Codes
Avoid overwhelming operators by utilizing Cascading Reason Codes which allow users to "drill down" into more granular downtime reasons.
Enhance the context of reporting allowing your operators to check-in and check-out of job and part operations as well as work centers.
Ease communication across shifts and with managers with the power of Wiki Articles built into the Machinist Interface. Step away from notepads to keep track of machine offsets, maintenance notes, and other miscellaneous production notes.
Bridge the communication gap between operators, programmers, managers, and engineers when it comes to continuous improvement. Process improvement requests can easily be made from the Machinist Interface to focus on improving NC Programs and specific tool paths.
- Capture references to Programs and Tools
- Empower your programmers and engineers with the Program Map
- Manage a Process Improvement queue
Identify the most impactful contributions to machine downtime. Review both high and low level reporting of downtime reason codes based on your configured system.
Understand how active each machine is throughout any time period and compare across multiple shifts. This high-level overview can help identify productivity differences between shifts or in correlation with production schedules. Use this report in tandem with Process Improvement reports to see if there is an opportunity for a LEAN project, Six Sigma project, or a simple program change.
Review NC Programs and Tools that have been analyzed to potentially need improvements. See how utilization and efficiency is affected by tool paths and overrides.
Review instances of machine alerts:
Machine monitoring allows us to fully log machine errors. Revolution IIoT™ Core goes one step further by including relative downtime categorization as a potential result of machine maintenance.
