FactoryTalk® Metrics is a system for efficiency monitoring, data collection and analysis for manufacturing plant equipment. It gives you the critical equipment data that can reveal new ways to increase production, reduce costs, and increase quality. By generating accurate reporting of real plant floor activity, this software gives you important insights into using existing equipment and labor more effectively. FactoryTalk Metrics reports on OEE, but it is more than just an OEE reporting tool. Beyond high-level KPIs, FactoryTalk Metrics supports answering the "why" questions, to uncovering and quantifying the actual causes of downtime and loss to help you make real improvements to performance.
Reveal Opportunities for Growth and Improvements
Manufacturers invest significant capital into their plant assets but may still suffer from poor visibility into equipment performance, unplanned downtime, and losses due to suboptimal quality of production. Without that visibility, they lack a direction for improving OEE—overall equipment effectiveness—which is calculated from availability, performance and quality KPIs related to an asset.
Tap Into Powerful, Self-service, Extendable OEE Reports
FactoryTalk Metrics provides out-of-the-box, self-service reports on OEE and 14 other standard performance indicators like MTTR (mean time to repair) and MTBF (mean time between failure). Data is automatically collected from control systems with little or no changes required. Configuration of reports is easy, flexible and scalable. In addition, you can take advantage of powerful customization features to configure data collection formulae and calculations. All reports can be accessible via a web browser across devices.
Drive Higher Profitability and Productivity
Want to experience OEE improvements of 10-30%? You’re not alone. Even small improvements in efficiency can add up and lead to huge bottom-line results. FactoryTalk Metrics can help you refine, streamline, and prioritize your process improvement initiatives for maximum results. By increasing OEE, you can reduce unplanned downtime, unproductive time, cycle times, scrap, and identify true causes of inefficiency. At the same time, you can produce more products in the same amount of time and empower continuous improvement in productivity, increasing profitability.
