Inspector Factory Agent – Tool for improving production efficiency
A tool for improving production efficiency
When you have complete information on production bottlenecks and unrealized potential, it is easy to improve productivity. However, information gathered with traditional methods is not reliable. It is not available in real time, nor is it systematic. Fadector is an automatic system that collects status data from production machinery reliably and systematically. It helps you increase the number of production hours without investing in additional machinery.
Automated data collection
It is time to get rid of traditional data collection methods, such as pen and paper. Inspector collects production data reliably and without human errors. The information is always available, and always in real time.
The modern software program has been designed to be easy to use. It is visually pleasant and the needed information is easy to find.
Reliability is a standard feature
A data collection system has to produce flawless measurement data in order to be useful. Inspector is well-protected against temporary network errors.
Adaptable for all production machinery
Inspector can be connected to almost any production device. Machine tools and robots can both be integrated with the measurement system. Inspector can also be integrated with other production devices such as furnaces or cooling pools.
What is Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE)?
The overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) of production machinery is an advanced measurement method, with which you can determine how effectively the production machinery or production line is able to carry out its tasks.
OEE calculation is based on three factors: availability, speed, and quality. OEE is a tool that helps focus the improvements in the right places and ensure that they are as effective as possible. The key to improvement is to remove factors that limit production.
Why is OEE measured?
It is important to have reliable data on your production. Operators, supervisors, development personnel, and managers need valid, up-to-date information. Measuring your OEE affects the operators and your company, but also your customer relationships: your delivery reliability improves, capacity increases, costs decrease and become more manageable, and the the effectiveness of labor increases.
Who can affect the OEE?
OEE is a production key figure, and at best your entire personnel can be committed to measure and improve it. The operators naturally play a key role, but service personnel are also very important in ensuring the availability of production machinery, and management and process planners can tackle structural problems in your production. OEE is a common indicator that shows you the right way to continuous improvement and minimizes part optimization.
