Pioneering development of Production System Effectiveness
Production System Effectiveness determined by MICRONITE consists of two stages: effectiveness measured by machine run-time and effectiveness measured by proportion of necessary downtime to overall time losses. In the first stage, optimal cycle time and prevention of non-conformance determine maximum production effectiveness. Also, exact monitoring of run-time allows to control variable inspection intervals and capture tool life data. In the second stage, exact monitoring of duration of downtime brings to light the essential elements of planned losses and unplanned wastes. The layout of detailed downtime data capture consists of four levels and provides comprehensive description of reasons and causes leading to real-time management alerts. In essence, MICRONITE manufacturing intelligence enables the user to understand the past, monitor the present and predict outcomes of improved processes.
