Manage factory jobs and development with a single system – experience the easiest-to-use MES on the market

Improving productivity begins with collecting data from machines and people

When starting with production development, it is important to determine the current state and make it transparent. Industrial IoT introduces a wealth of opportunities for automatic data collection on the production process to map out its current state. Data collected from machines alone is however not enough, but you need people, most often the operator working in production, to enrich the data.

Why should the production data be digitized?

3 reasons to collect data from production machines automatically:

1

You’ll know the real-time status of production
2

You’ll recognize bottleneck machines
3

You can determine the root causes for stoppages

Digitized production data in support of shop floor management

The key factors for excellent production daily management are reliable and real-time data collection from production, modern management of maintenance and production planning, and data visualization that improves understanding. High-quality and real-time data forms the basis for daily decision-making. Fact-based predictions can improve production efficiency by as much as dozens of percent.

Production shop floor management is done on the factory floor. Production supervision will get together with operative employees at a common meeting, where the visualization of production key figures and deviations, participation, and data sharing play the key roles.

Our customers’ experiences:

Fazer Makeiset Oy

Machine Track is linked to the SAP system used throughout the Fazer Group. “SAP gives us a production plan and Machine Track gives us a realization that can then be compared.”

– Toni Kaljunen, maintenance foreman

Olvi Group

“The deployment was smooth and took a week. The reform was very well received by the staff and there were no complaints about the system. Machine Track helps us identify production problems and identify the causes behind them.”

– Lauri Multanen, production manager

Orion Oyj

As the benefits of single-pack data collection began to materialize, the use of the system was expanded. Today, Orion has approximately 50 different manufacturing and packaging machines under surveillance. “Machine Track is the most important tool for determining production efficiency.”

– Vesa Väyrynen, foreman of the packing station

Altia Oyj

The factory’s five bottling lines and two tap packaging lines were brought under modern production management. “We get really good data from individual machines. Fact on the table. We know, for example, what is causing the line to malfunction. ”

– Markus Valtonen, production manager

Oy Gustav Paulig Ab

“Previously, operators recorded quality reporting on a piece of paper, and now they wanted to get all paper filling off the line. While clicking on the system, all quality measurements can be conveniently recorded there.”

– Janne Nikula, process development engineer

Huhtamäki Oyj

“In addition to the hygiene and traceability criteria, more and more companies are very careful about their reputation and the activities of their subcontractors. Our customers can, if they wish, verify that the taxes and other obligations of each person working on the machine are complied with by law.”
