Report types

There are the following report type:

  • OEE: This report type provides an OEE graph. It has the following parameters:
    • Units: The units that should be included.
    • Period: The period that should be covered.
    • Interval: The interval, which the period should be split it's data into.

Example of the OEE report:

  • StopReason: This report type provides a stop category Pareto graph. It has the following parameters:
    • Units: The units that should be included.
    • Period: The period that should be covered.
    • Amount of reasons to show: The number of most occurring different stop causes that will be shown.

Example of the StopReason report:

  • Setpoints: This report type provides the underlining data for the OEE aspects. These data are:
    • Point:
      • All Time: The 24/4 time (including every minute) that is available for the period.
      • Scheduled Loss Time: The time that is not scheduled for production.
      • Planned Stop Time: The stop time that is planned.
      • Unplanned Stop Time: The stop time that is not planned (Small stops are not included here).
      • Small Stop Time: The time for small stops (The stops that are not long enough to be tracked as stop time).
      • Slow Cycle Time: The time that the production cycle took longer than the ideal cycle time.
      • Quality Loss Time: The production time used on products that need to be discarded or reworked.
      • Produced Good Time: The production time used on products that pass quality check.
      • Produced Waste Time: The production time used on products that need to be discarded.
      • Produced Rework Time: The production time used on products that need to be reworked.
      • Total Count: The production count for good, discarded and reworked products.
      • Good Count: The production count for good products.
      • Scrap Count: The production count for discarded products.
      • Rework Count: The production count for products that need to be reworked.
      • Cycle Time: The cycle time for the production in the period.
      • Run Time: The time that the production is planned and up and running in the period (Small stops are also included here).
      • Planned Production Time:  The time that is planned for production.
      • Net Run Time: The remaining time after performance loss is subtracted from the Run time (The Run time subtracted with Small Stop Time and Slow Cycle Time).
      • Produced Total Time: The production time used for good, discarded and reworked products.
      • Full Production Time: The Net Run Time subtracted with Quality Loss Time.
      • Availability: The percentages that the production was up and running for the given planned production period.
      • Performance: The percentages of the actual production speed compared to the maximum possible production speed for the given planned production period.
      • Quality: The percentages of the good production time compared to the total production time for the given planned production period.
      • OEE: The product of Availability, Performance and Quality.
    • Bar Series: The points that should be shown as bars in the graph.
    • Line Series: The points that should be shown as lines in the graph.

Example of the Setpoints report:

 

  • Week: This report type provides an week by week based analyses of a unit, this includes Availability, top 10 stop causes that happened, in-deep look at a stop cause including duration, count and cost. It has the following parameters:
    • Units: The units that should be included.
    • Period: The period that should be covered.
    • Shift: The shift type that this report should cover. To cover all shift types, select All here.
    • Cost per hour: The cost per hour prize, that the selected stop cause(The one you select in Use stop cause(s)) costs you.
    • Cost unit of measurement: The currency you use in Cost per hour.
    • Use stop cause(s): The stop cause, you want to measure the duration, count and cost of. You can select All here to use all the stop causes or you can under This select at specific stop cause.  

Example of the Week report:

  • ProductionTable: This report type provides a table presentation of the OEE and DIAP tag data, where one can summarize the data into periods and see the correlation between your OEE and DIAP tag data. It has the following parameters:
    • Units: The units that should be included.
    • Period: The period that should be covered.
    • Product(Optional): Filter the data after the selected products, so when a unit was producing one of the selected products, the data is included. If no products are selected then the data won't be filtered.
    • Interval: The interval, which the period should be split it's data into.
    • Series(Max 5):  There are 2 serie types OEE and Live. The OEE serie presents OEE numbers and OEE related numbers and the Live serie present the data collected from a DIAP tag.
      • OEE serie: Name is the name of the series, OEE serie is the OEE data in the serie and Unit of measurement is an option for you to add a unit of measurement to the numbers. 
      • Live serie: Name is the name of the series, Live serie is the DIAP tag data in the serie, Unit of measurement is an option for you to add a unit of measurement to the numbers.  Summarize data is the function used to summarize the data for the period, the options are Sum, Average, Min, Max and Difference between min and max.
