What is Machine Monitoring?

Machine Monitoring equips you with the ability to track your machines’ activities in real time and accumulate valuable data to enhance machine uptime and overall efficiency. Our manufacturing monitoring system enables production managers to analyze critical production data in real time via interactive dashboards, charts, graphs, e-mails, and text messages from any web-enabled device.

Enhancing Visibility with FactoryWiz Monitoring

Visibility is vital when it comes to productivity data. FactoryWiz Monitoring can drive large format TV’s and monitors, mounted in your machine shop or office areas, providing critical information in a common area. Such visibility can positively impact productivity, as information about machine downtime and its reasons are utilized by operators and management alike. Our system is designed to enhance machine efficiency, improve machine uptime, OEE, identify operation bottlenecks, and overall production.

The Power of Industry 4.0 for Machine Efficiency

Isociated with the concept of the “Smart Factory”, provides complete shop floor visibility through comprehensive machine/event monitoring and managed file transfers on your plant-wide network. In such smart factories, software systems like FactoryWiz monitor physical processes of CNC machines, robots, or assembly lines and present real-time information. This data allows management to make better decisions based on factual information, which is shared with all networked customers, including ERP and MRP systems. In the current economic climate, where machine efficiency is critical for success, manufacturing monitoring is a must-have tool.

Delving Deeper: Timeline View and Customized Operator Tablets

Our timeline view presents a concise 24-hour snapshot of the activities of one or all machines. The color-coded graphs by FactoryWiz indicate when a machine was running or idle, with superimposed lines showing the position of override dials at the time. This feature allows a quick overview of patterns, such as a machine running for three hours while the feed override was at 10%, or if a set of machines consistently goes idle at the same time of day. You can also receive automated daily, weekly, or monthly OEE reports and compare them based on the machine, department, shift, or part produced.

Additionally, we offer a customizable Machine Operator tablet with a standardized company look-and-feel. Its primary function is to facilitate a bidirectional exchange of information, such as production status, maintenance reminders, interaction with the Quality Department, and importantly, a tool for operators to input downtime reasons predefined by the management.

Access Anytime, Anywhere

All these production monitoring metrics are available in real time on any web-enabled device, anywhere in the world. FactoryWiz Machine Monitoring provides you with the state of all your machines or a subset. It offers key details like running or idle status, duration, any alarms, feed rate override dial adjustments, current part name and count, and more. With FactoryWiz, a wealth of information from your machines is condensed into a simple list accessible from almost any device with a web browser.
