Automatic downtime registration
Operators and/or maintenance staff normally provide reasons and comments for the losses incurred via a few push buttons in the user-friendly user interface. This justification of losses is done in the basic module (OEE +). However, when the number of operators is less than the number of machines, it is useful to automate loss justification with the automatic downtime registration module. Based on a number of digital inputs, this module ensures a fully automatic downtime registration of the losses.
Based on failure codes from the PLC, this module ensures that downtimes are justified (semi) automatically. Semi-automatic means that although the source of the faillure (machine in a line) is automatically indicated, the operator still has to choose the final cause.
- less work for the operator
- more accurate data
