Monitoring of production machines (SIDAS® CNC)
The important indicators, as e.g. production time and downtime, cutting times, number of produced pieces, etc. are necessary to monitor also in technologies, which consist of a smaller number of sophisticated manually served manufacturing machines.
All data is again stored in the real-time database. However, the data acquisition from the control systems requires a specific know how. This requirement is executed by using the SIDAT SIDAS® CNC which is tied together with real-time SQL database. SIDAS CNC integrates our knowledge related to machine tool control systems, PLC's and data acquisition by means of signals from simple machines. By incorporating the panels with scanner makes it possible to file the scheduled production plan as well as the worker's attendance at the workplace.
By utilizing all this data, it is subsequently not only possible to display the actual status of the technology but also the historical production statuses and production outputs in the periods passed (Gant diagrams). At the same time the important indicators (as e.g.OEE, OPI, etc.) are on-line calculated. The other possibility is to file the production process in a structured form according to the individual product. The integral feature of the application is furthermore the reporting part. Reflecting the customer requirements, it provides simple or sophisticated reports, which describe the entire production process and its conformity with the production plan.
