io.Performance OEE

by eschbach GmbH

Simple OEE live accounting and analysis of target values, downtimes, quantities or batch cycle times for ever better performance in all production environments.

Solution Overview

io.Performance simplifies OEE capture in all production environments, including batch, semi-continuous, fully continuous and complex multipurpose plants. Standardize methodology and reporting across the enterprise and connect all people, departments and systems involved. In close cooperation with the performance of the OSIsoft PI System, we translate sensor data into continuous improvement decisions. io.Performance provides data across departments from management to operator in a simple way.

Losses in asset availability, speed and quality are visible live and can be analyzed by customized reports. Cross-departmental and cross-hierarchy access to role-specific functions and support for Total Productive Maintenance (TPM). Helps recognizing complex relationships between losses and prediction of recurring problems. Dynamic recognition of bottlenecks and identification of common vs. special cause variations in a clear batch monitor. Easy to use through automatic preselection of loss categories. Global harmonization enables the use of business intelligence tools - a starting point for predictive maintenance.

Solution Approach

io.Performance Connects to the PI Asset Framework and retrieves Event Frames for all OEE-related units. The solution visualizes the manufacturing process and highlights losses, such as unplanned downtimes or speed losses for the operator to select reason codes and add a detailed loss description. The data is then aggregated and available for visualizations and reports, such as shift reports, morning meeting and lean meeting reports, site or corporate level benchmarking reports and third party BI solution use. Reason codes can also be sent back to the PI System.
