Three Steps to Start Your Industry 4.0 Journey

Acquisition01a

With WISE-PaaS/EdgeLink edge data acquisition software, data collected from different machines and multiple facilities goes through the edge into one single platform, either on-premises or in the cloud platform.

Computing01a

With WebAccess/SCADA software, data is aggregated in the on-premises server, or directly transmitted into the WISE-PaaS cloud platform. Data is analyzed and visualized with the industrial application software.

Management01a

Using contextualized and visualized data, both real-time and historical, in the Industry 4.0 Situation Room, enables managers to gain significant intelligence and actionable insights for optimizing operation efficiency.

KPI01-1a

KPI Management

Production KPI allows production performance to be measured and compared for real-time management. It also provides immediate customizable notifications so that appropriate people can be alerted in an unexpected factory floor condition or event.

Remote Access, Anytime Anywhere

Mobile access to dashboard empowers operators to view data and get insights proactively. It also supports managers to ascertain business intelligence, make decisions, and determine appropriate actions to take.

Dashboard Visualization

User-centric, custom dashboards provide a quick overview on factory operational KPIs. The dashboard visualizations include trends, graphs, diagrams, tables and process displays.

Real-time Data Management

It also allows users to view real-time and historical data in the Industry 4.0 Situation Room to support the managers to have efficient data-driven decision making.

Visualization01a

Dashboard Management

Real-time Production Management

Machine status can be monitored as machine running, error, idle, and machine stopped. Integrated with MES, the work-in-process (WIP) information can be connected to machine status for analyzing and improving overall production efficiency.

Machine Availability Management

The runtime of each machine can be counted to calculate machine availability that reflects the percentage of planned production time the machine is available for operation. Machine availability can be utilized to evaluate the return on investment (ROI).

Dashboard Management

Production Management: Day Shift & Night Shift

The comparative production analysis of day and night shifts can be examined in detail on a daily basis, to further evaluate and improve the performance.

Changeover Efficiency Management

The average changeover time can be calculated to analyze daily efficiency. To figure out the small differences, accurate scheduling changeovers at the right time can improve operation efficiency.

Dashboard Management

Energy Consumption Overview

An overview of past energy profiles and current energy consumption data provides a systematic approach to identify problem areas and prime targets for energy reduction.

Energy KPI Management

KPI settings allow users to measure and review energy usage and efficiency of each department, reducing energy waste and improving energy efficiency.

Dashboard Management

Energy Consumption and Cost Analysis

Production is usually the largest energy consuming part of a factory. Energy consumption data and costs can be analyzed and compared with utility bills to help improve energy efficiency and wastage.

Machine Utilization and Energy Efficiency

Production-integrated energy management enables machine availability tracking with machine energy consumption, to enhance operational efficiency and allow preventive maintenance.
