FactoryWorxTM Production Reporting solves the biggest business challenge: How can we make more accurate decisions and respond faster.

FactoryWorx - Real Time Reporting

Real time data and reporting is the foundation of smooth manufacturing operation. It enables people in all areas to react in a timely manner to important events, take corrective or preventative action. This simultaneously saves costs and improves profit margins, by preventing downtime, costly breakdowns, producing faulty goods, and any reasons that can stop or disrupt production.

 

Through its sensor-enhanced capabilities, FactoryWorxTM Production Reporting  module delivers meaningful real-time and predictive insights to all areas of operations. This means full visibility of all physical and digital factors, enabling, planning and responsiveness to the enterprise-wide and customer-supply-chain interdependencies.

FactoryWorx - Stand-Alone Reporting Capability

At FactoryWorx we recognise that manufacturers are often restricted in how they can utilise their expensive specialist equipment. Any interference or modification of equipment can wave the all-important warranty. FactoryWorxTM Production Reporting  software enables us to drop in stand-alone IoT sensors to produce reports directly from any equipment in your factory, lab or warehouse – without interfering with the equipment in any way.

FactoryWorxTM Production Reporting answers the big question: How can we adopt a digitized reporting system without having to invest in additional equipment?

FactoryWorx - Perfect Reports Using What You’ve Got

FactoryWorxTM Production Reporting module enables you to produce reports without or with minimum cost by using equipment you already have. How?

 

If your manufacturing facility, lab or warehouse already has one or more of the following devices, you already have the capability of generating perfect reports in FactoryWorx software. FactoryWorx will safely connect your special equipment via additional stand-alone IoT Sensors.

IoT Printers

Smart Scales

Check Weighers

IoT Historian

FactoryWorx - The Future of Production Reporting is Here

Our software will help you create great reports that provide clarity, insights and even predictive analytics for best performance. But unlike other Production Reporting software, FactoryWorxTM Production Reporting has the capability of building an innovative Omni-Visible Live Intelligence Hub.

 

The future of Production Reporting is as much about the quality of Data, best Analytics as it is about the speed and omni-presence of insights. having information available just on the desktop, or on the production line screen, or even just” on the mobile device, is no longer enough.

 

To address the requirement for agility and almost pervasive visibility of data in manufacturing, FactoryWorxTM Production Reporting leverages emerging technologies that enable operators, to see live data and be alerted to issues in different areas of production instantly.

 

This helps reduce the cost of labour and ultimately of manufacturing and is particularly valuable in advanced, AI-driven manufacturing environments. And this is the future for manufacturing and distribution.

Functionality and Benefits of FactoryWorxTM Production Reporting

Explore the functionalities and their extensive Module includes a range of solutions relating to.

DESCRIPTION

FactoryWorxTM OEE Reporting enables to monitor and analyse equipment performance data which has the major impact of business performance.

On the basic level, provides waste, schedule and efficiency reporting. On the FactoryWorx MES and Industry 4.0 level, OEE Reporting provides predictive analytics reports, using Sensors and data mining.

Functionality
  • OEE availability
  • OEE performance
  • OEE cost of maintenance
BENEFITS
  • Understand and manage equipment  performance with planning based on data.
  • Manage equipment utilisation to extend the life of expensive assets.
  • Allocate the right people to special equipment to protect assets, reduce cost of repairs and maximise yield from equipment.
RELATED SOLUTIONS
DESCRIPTION

Downtime is the major cause of lost productivity, increased waste and production and product costs. If unchecked, it can cause a decline in profitability, revenue and irreparable brand damage.

 

FactoryWorxTM Downtime Reporting is an essential management tool that on the basic level provides instant insights on time, reason, frequency and cost of downtime. On advanced MES level it informs Predictive Maintenance and Asset Management.

Functionality
  • Major and minor stoppage reporting
  • Speed loss reporting
  • First up fault reporting
  • Manual reason and action input
  • Downtime Analysis and Tracking – Root Cause Analysis (RCA), i.e. 5 WHY’s are provided by Operators for future improvement.
  • Manual & Automated Downtime Recording:
  • Manual recording – allowing operators to enter downtime events directly in the system either when they occur or more often before the end of the shift.
  • Automated recording – by direct connection to the primary packaging machine / line printer. With automatic recording the running/stop/no count signal is taken from the PLC via OPC or based on printer count. The start and stop times are therefore precise. If the PLC can give fault codes these are also captured. Operators review the list of automatically captured downtime events and update the events with downtime reasons but of course they cannot change the duration.
  • FactoryWorxTMStandardised Event Downtime Classifications:
  • Downtime events are classified to enables fast responses, learning and future improvements.
  • Breakdowns– equipment failures technical reasons related to the equipment and process (Operator Input)
  • Unplanned stops – e.g. material shortages, man-power shortages
  • Planned stops – e.g. planned maintenance, changeovers, set-up
  • Speed Loss – when the line isn’t producing to standard rate
  • Operational– when the proper procedures have not been followed
  • Minor Stops – e.machine stops that do not impact production of primary producing machine
  • Equipment Reliability – Fault codes logged and reported from machine.
  • FactoryWorxTMDowntime Reporting Module – enables granular reporting for deep analytics.
  • Events can be investigated by machine, line, department, shift, downtime reason, downtime category and product.
  • Calculates relevant KPIs, e.g. MTBF/ MTTR / MTTA
  • Downtime visualised on dashboards with optional ability to raise alarms via email/SMS.
BENEFITS
  • Customer satisfaction and retention through consistent quality and delivery.
  • Reduced cost of materials and waste of faulty products by eliminating faults and defects.
  • Reduced cost of labour with automated quality monitoring.
  • Optimised processes leveraging data and trends that lead to innovation.

FactoryWorxTM Advanced Charting - Reporting for Impact

It’s no secret that people learn and absorb information in many different ways. While with the advance of digital and social media culture, people are becoming increasingly visual learners, images also make the most impact. Yet, there are still many ways that visual data can convey messages more effectively to different people: linear, 2- or 3-dimensional; by colour, or by what we are trying to achieve, and what motivates us.

 

FactoryWorxTM Production Reporting, software has an exceptional breadth of visualisation widgets and advanced graphics and visualisations to assist people in better understanding and responding to data in front of them. This enables manufacturing operations to generate reports for biggest impact on individual, team / crew, supervisory or C-suite level.

Motivational Power of Reports

Seeing their KPIs plotted next to actual results can put a rocket under teams or individuals to try harder, prioritise better, or even just ask: why?

Notifications & Alerts

While Notifications, Alerts and Autonomous Responses are not strictly part of Production Reporting, timely notifications and alerts are related technologies that enhance the impact of reports by actually prompting people to look and perform certain tasks, e.g. Autonomous Maintenance).
