What Is Manufacturing Analytics?

When the capabilities of modern information technology are integrated into manufacturing operations, your business benefits. 

Connectivity between machines on the factory floor — and well beyond it — is known as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Now more than ever, it’s critical to capture the data your machines generate to run operations as efficiently as possible. ShopVue Analytics helps you visualize this data, enabling manufacturers to collect real-time data from their industrial equipment and derive actionable insights for business improvement.

Unique Features & Capabilities

A core ShopVue module, ShopVue Analytics monitors Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in the following dashboards:

Labor Management

Manage your workforce while tracking real labor costs. Easily view OLE and employee status to ensure productivity.

Machine Monitoring

Connect shop floor machines, systems and processes to continuously collect and share data. Monitor cycle time, throughput and quality metrics to boost efficiency throughout the production process. Plus, gain key insights into OEE, changeover times, and machine status for continuous improvement.

Order Management

Work smarter and faster to optimize operator’s work and reduce reliance on paperwork. View order location and WIP to monitor product as it moves through each stage of your shop.

Capture validated, real-time labor, machine, and order data directly from the shop floor so you can visualize KPI’s like OTD, OLE, OEE, and WIP as it happens to leverage key insights to optimize performance, and drive efficiency and quality for continuous improvement.

Why Do I Need Production ShopVue Analytics?

Success in manufacturing depends upon operational excellence. But it’s difficult to achieve optimal levels of efficiency and productivity without knowing exactly what’s happening on the shop floor.

For complete visibility into your shop floor activities, you need real-time reporting. ShopVue Analytics collects essential, real-time data from industrial equipment and presents it directly to business stakeholders in a series of user dashboards, including both out-of-the-box and customizable options.  

You’ll have access to quality, real-time data, and you’ll be able to share KPIs across your organization. ShopVue Analytics is a powerful dashboard tool built on a leading BI platform Qlik.

How Do We Measure The Value of Production Visability?

ShopVue Analytics allows you to visualize the critical data being generated through your IIoT platform, your ShopVue MES platform, and other manufacturing systems. Process bottlenecks and equipment failures are much more easily identified. Customers can see the status and schedule of their orders. 

Widespread visibility into manufacturing operations and KPIs (displayed on monitors, PCs, and mobile devices) can motivate production teams to meet their goals. The impact of Shop Activity & Labor Management can be measured by improving metrics for Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE), Overall Labor Efficiency (OLE), Overall Operations Effectiveness (OOE).  These three key metrics can help drive shop floor optimization.
