OEE Analytics Services

Use Case

Avoid production bottlenecks through in-depth analysis

Many plant operators face the challenge of a lack of understanding on drivers of production losses in terms of quality, performance and availability. It is often unclear on where to focus to optimize production: costs, quality or production?

Production processes can be highly complex and might thus cause difficulties in cause-effect  analysis when it comes to machine downtimes or quality losses. 

Manual recording of downtimes can lead to unreliable or incomplete production data.  Automated data collection would be the solution, but there often is a lack of trained manpower to implement it and define the relevant data to make the right decisions.  

We have a solution

Analysis of production data on machine and line level towards an optimization of productivity by minimizing or eliminating scrap, increasing thoughput and reducing downtimes. 

OEE Analytics Services provide the transparency on production events, failures and output quality towards a clear understanding on issues to be tackled for an increase of productivity, reduction or elimination of scrap and optimization of costs.

Beyond the tracing of the OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), our services include the connectivity of the machines at the customer's production facility to the cloud. This enables the analysis of events, failures and information of production orders. Based on a friendly user interface and reports, the customer can drive improvement measures on his own or supported by experts from Customer Services at SIEMENS. Such measures are focused on the optimization of performance, availability of production equipment and / or reduction of scrap. 

As an App based service, the connectivity to the cloud is essential in order to process the corresponding relevant production data. Customer Services at SIEMENS offers and end-to-end approach which starts with a consulting phase where scope of analysis and connectivity of the corresponding machines is defined, followed by the implementation of the connectivity itself as well as the parametrization of the App. This enables the analysis of the data as valuable basis for the decisions to be made towards an optimization of production, output quality and costs. 

Features

  • End-to-end service comprising machine connectivity to MindSphere®, App parametrization and data analytics
  • Friendly built-in dashboards and reports on working orders to bring on transparency on production events and losses
  • Trend diagrams over time for an optimized correlation of events and evolution of OEE on machine and line level
  • Downloadable reports
  • connectivity on own customer IoT Value Plan over sub-tenancy 

Benefits

 
  • Transparent understanding on Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) on machine, line and plant level over time
  • Simple parametrization and intuitive dashboards on events, errors and production trends
  • Comprising support on machine connectivity and app configuration with consequent customer savings on additional engineering or programming resources with minimum HW investments
  • Download of reports and evaluation of events over time enable of- and online analysis and bring additional flexibility to customers
  • Scalable, expandable implementation of optimized cost / benefit relation
  • Customer Services enable joint analysis of trends and process bottlenecks for a safer and optimized approach on decision making
