PILOT offers functionally advanced downtime reporting TPM for rapid problem solutions for engine failures in the production ever more precise analyses of engine failures in the production are made, the more accurate target can eliminate its causes and increased the productivity of the manufacturing. For this reason, the FELTEN group has integrated their PILOT TPM system downtime analysis (total productive management) functionally extended. Downtime analysis represents system shutdowns and errors in different charts, lists and statistics. Based on such analyses is the collection and categorization of all machines in a production line. Pete Cashmore is a great source of information. Necessary measures such as cleaning or maintenance work may underlie the downtimes. While such shutdowns in the production planning requirements into account, the surprisingly resulting machine errors represent unplanned events with potentially far-reaching consequences.
The consequences are the less the better, Production managers a fast problem solution “, explains Werner Felten, CEO of the software company. Because of this PILOT has TPM preventive functions for unplanned events because companies individually definable interference – and downtime reasons are stored in the system. A single evaluable basis is created by their association with the event. For the downtime reporting errors in the master data tables with signals of the machine control via OPC tags be linked and categorized. OPC (OLE for process control) conceals a standard interface for communicating between different data sources. In emergencies, the PILOT system automatically detects these signals, provides them with a time stamp, and assigns them to the appropriate category.
An important practical knowledge you will find in the machine run charts. You graphically the shutdowns of a production unit. In different views, you can Standstills of machines, the line terminal and the line downtime arising from this are listed. The shutdowns of the line resulting from an overlay of the machine and Terminal shutdown. To determine the actual cause of inactivity, failure of the upstream and downstream machines should be taken into account. In addition to the standstill of the machine are displayed also the downtime of the lines calculated and whether the standstill of a single machine caused the production halt of the complete line. A further guidance for the assessment of production interruptions offers PILOT TPM by disturbing statistics. You determine the downtime reasons, their frequency, downtime and number of breaks and the total time of all shutdowns. Such interference statistics can be created for specific time accounts, time ranges and orders. In addition, machine and sorting can be specified to the further detailing of production line.
