OEE system

  ... transparency pays off



Fränz & Jaeger delivers complete OEE-Systems (Overall Equipment Effectivness).

With the OEE key figure can be displayed at a glance both the productivity of a unit, as well as their losses.

Downtimes of a production unit are expensive. As a key to the reduction of downtime, the creation of transparency by recording the downtime reasons has been found.

In practice, increases are seen in productivity of over 20% after introduction of this OEE system.

The F&J OEE-System features :

  • calculation and display of OEE at site
  • easy choice of downtime reasons
  • shift times
  • statistical evaluation
  • recording as CSV (Excel) with FTP
  • SQL server connection
  • WEB based remote configuration

It's easy configured :

The F & J OEE system is individually configurable for the operator for each unit. It is adjustable which standstill reason is planned and therefore the measure does not diminish.

It's low cost :

The system is based on very compact WAGO controllers and is easy integrated in virtually any application. All you need is a signal contact of the production-machine and a start contact to the machine.

It's safe :

All data is stored on a flash card and additionally via FTP or in a database. From there are evaluations that go beyond the already integrated, according to any criteria possible.

OEE key value (source Wikipedia) :

The OEE of a plant is defined as product of the following factors :

  • Availability factor
  • power factor
  • quality score

The range is between 0 and 1 or 0 and 100 percent.

The OEE is a measure of unplanned loss of a plant. Therefore, the planned downtimes are deducted in the first step of the calendar time (24 hours, 7 days a week). Planned shutdowns could be, for example:

  • No occupation or instrumentation
  • planned maintenance
  • pause
  • strike
  • no product manufacturing

The remaining operating time is the basis for the OEE-figure and is therefore defined as 100%.

Of these 100% now, the performance, availability and quality losses are deducted, so that the overall OEE of the plant is given.

The F&J OEE System in standard configuration calculates the availability factor.

Your benefit :

The benefits of OEE is the transparency of the value added component of the plant, giving the management another view of the system. The index is ideally suited to establish an objective agreement process to this OEE number. Because the figures can be made - due to their comprehensiveness - robust to structural changes in production.

High availability Linux server

... when push comes to shove

 HighEnd ServerWeb

Substantial automation projects always need central functions. These functions could be mapped to data ceters. But often a dedicated hardware is desired or, e.g. realtime requirements make it necessary.

Within industrial environments high availability must be shown at the same time.

Therefore Fränz & Jaeger realized high availability LINUX clusters based on proven Pacemaker and DRBD components.

As a rule the cluster consists of two identical machines in a hot-standby configuration:

The data of the currrent operating machine are mirrored by DRBD automatically and in realtime to the secondary machine. In case of emergency there is a fast switch to the secondary machine without data loss possible.

This configuration is more convenient as systems with centralized data retention, because the data retention itself has to be constructed fully redundant, in order not to build a new  SPOF (Single point of failure).

Fränz & Jaeger HA Server are the stable base for master computer, central monitoring or fast image processing solutions.
