MES Data acquisition – consistency and efficiency PROXIA MES!

PROXIA MES Data acquisition – Flawless data acquisition as the basis for CIP in production

Rising machine hour rates and the high level of wages in production mean that losses in the availability of machines, systems and personnel resources have a direct impact on business KPIs. The goal is to achieve higher efficiency. However, there is often a lack of systematic, documented records and analyzes that can be used to get to the bottom of these losses, to reduce them and significantly increase the utilization of machines and personnel. Therefore, the underlying basis of all optimization and decision-making processes is the collection of data on machines and systems, personnel, measurements & warehouse stocks and the combination of these factors.
It is crucial that none of these data acquisition methods is a standalone solution. All data must be linked and usable elsewhere (e.g. Control Room or Controlling). This data consistency and interaction is a prerequisite for sustainable CIP in the Smart Factory: PROXIA BDE production data acquisition, MDE machine data acquisition, ETKS employee timekeeping system, CAQ measurement capture and internal transport logistics capture all relevant data: manually (BDE) or automatically (MDE). They form the basis for analyzes, evaluations and controlling on a secure database, from which the correct optimization, time savings, improvements in quality, etc. can be derived.
