Manufacturing Equipment Performance Management

Insight Performance is a software-as-a-service application for manufacturing equipment efficiency data collection and storage to:

  • Provide real-time visibility into equipment efficiency KPI’s, empowering operators and decision-makers to take immediate corrective action to improve plant performance and productivity
  • Increase asset utilization with accurate information on equipment downtime
  • Expose hidden improvement opportunities and enhance collaboration for increasing asset performance and driving better production results
  • Determine and eliminate the root causes of plant capacity losses with new insights from performance history data
  • Automate data collection from plant automation, Edge and IoT devices or through using the web user interface

Quick Time to Value

As a secure cloud-based application and data storage solution, Insight Performance provides fast deployment and time to value without the cost and effort of establishing and maintaining an IT infrastructure. Get started collecting and storing equipment related event data through:

  1. Operator entry using the web user interface
  2. Direct connection using IoT enabled sensors or
  3. Connecting to existing plant automation systems

Our subscription model offers a scalable approach to meet both small plant and multi-site solution requirements  processes and makes it possible to improve equipment performance in plants where traditional on-premise software deployments are not economically feasible.

Enterprise Performance Management

Standardize KPIs, share best practices and elevate plant performance consistently across the business. Simply define a set of equipment KPIs and utilization states as your standard for data collection and visualization in all your plants. With plant and equipment data coming together in the cloud, side-by-side comparison of equipment efficiency and identifying best practices is easy. The cloud provides an immeasurable performance and storage capacity potential for collecting large amounts of data and accessing equipment information throughout large organizations.

Equipment Insights for OEMs and VARs

Insight Performance is a fantastic new opportunity to provide customers with a value-add solution that helps them fully utilize the capacity and performance that your solution offers. It also gives OEMs and VARs the ability to compare and benchmark multiple instances of their solution to gain new insights into downtime patterns, reliability and performance improvement potentials.

Insight Performance Features

Insight Performance enables industrial end users and solution builders to collect, store and visualize equipment downtime and utilization event data in the cloud.

Equipment Efficiency Monitoring

Empower operators to drive plant performance with real-time information on downtime and KPIs in a ready to use equipment dashboard. With increased visibility, operators can quickly identify and address the main causes of inefficiency and downtime. Automatically collected events may be modified by an operator or authorized person to further clarify the root cause. The ability to merge events or split an event into two or more individual events allows for data reconsolidation to accurately rank and analyze the events impacting equipment utilization.

Advanced Reporting and Analysis

View and analyze equipment utilization information and perform root cause analysis using intuitive charts and reports. Create dashboards for web and mobile devices that can be viewed anytime, anywhere across the business. The responsive newsfeed and alerts from the solution’s advanced analytics enable improved decision making to drive sustainable plant performance improvements. Maintain profitability and competitiveness by continuously optimizing equipment efficiency and maximizing the capacity utilization of existing assets.

Configuration

The Insight Performance configuration experience is an integrated part of the web user interface. A user with administration rights can quickly set up and manage the components of the efficiency model. The elements of the efficiency model include equipment to be tracked, efficiency states defining the equipment states expected to occur and utilization reasons describing an event changing the equipment state. For OEE (overall equipment effectiveness) analysis purposes, equipment state statistics are aggregated into three predefined state types: Runtime, Downtime, and Idle. Bulk load of configuration information is supported through uploading CSV files direct from the web user interface to the system.

Manual and Automatic Data Collection

Insight Performance collects and stores equipment and production related event data through either operator entry on the web user interface or by equipment event notifications pushed from existing plant software, edge devices or IIoT enabled sensors and smart devices.
