Manufacturing Analytics for Higher Quality and Efficiency
You’ve got a lot of data in manufacturing, maintenance, repair and overhaul. We’ll help you harness that data and make it work harder for you. Argonaut Factory Information Systems (FIS) for OEE will help you measure and manage your plant to its greatest efficiency and product quality. Because it’s part of the Argonaut manufacturing performance platform, adding an OEE system just means adding and configuring an app. And as with every Argonaut app, you can control and update it all from one central location.
Higher Efficiency and Quality
By capturing real-time data from your conveyance, tools and process equipment, you can have a complete operational view. Equipment health monitoring helps you stop problems before they start, and communicates the data to anyone you choose, whether on an Andon board, pager or mobile device. Long-term monitoring provides trending information to continuously improve production. Our customers see greater efficiency, improved quality, and less downtime. We’ll help keep your line up and running at its optimum cycle time throughout every shift.
Eliminate Bottlenecks and Starved Stations
Once you’ve captured that operational data, you’ll be able to anticipate bottlenecks before they happen. You’ll see immediately if a machine is failing so that you can simultaneously have it repaired and redirect your product flow. In the same process, you’ll be capturing machine health data to prevent future faults. If a line side parts supply has fallen below its minimum required quantity, your OEE/FIS will notify inventory staff to add parts before the line’s impacted.
Equipment Health Monitoring
Capture and track machine fault codes, supplies inventory, tool use and more. With Argonaut OEE/FIS, you’ll have a scheduled maintenance program that reflects your specific use patterns, not a supplier’s recommendation. Replace rivets and bits before they fail as part of planned maintenance. Automatically send machine and operator-entered fault codes to your service team, with pre-defined automatic escalation based on code severity and time elapsed. Capture and analyze all of that data to improve overall equipment effectiveness for a machine, an operation, or a shift.
Real-time Data Communication to any Location
Argonaut OEE/FIS includes standard manufacturing reports which can be configured to your specifications. We’ll get you set up with Andon boards, user-friendly dashboards and reports, mobile wireframes, pager interface and more. You’ll have secure factory-wide and enterprise-wide reporting to fit your needs.
Manufacturing Analytics – Real-time and Predictive
We’ve worked with some of the world’s largest manufacturers and we know how to optimize production. By capturing and analyzing your plant’s data, we’ll help you predict problems and stop them before they start. You’ll get real-time analytics that will be used to create predictive analytics, for a path of continuous improvement.
Part of the Argonaut Manufacturing Performance Platform
Because it’s built on the Argonaut platform, your OEE system will have a similar look and feel to your other manufacturing software applications. And because it’s written in current web tech, you’ll have the flexibility to add functions and analytics without hiring an elite programmer who knows one particular MES.
Argonaut apps can run individually or as part of a larger MES suite. Apps can be added, updated and removed as needed.
