Real-Time Performance Management
By combining real-time metrics and easy-to-use technology, Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE offers the ability to immediately identify manufacturing losses, monitor product costing, measure OEE and optimize plan attainment. You can easily identify and adjust key metrics in under five seconds for optimized plan attainment.
Flexible and Fast Deployment
With Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE you have the ability to choose between either hosting the solution on-premise or in the cloud, based on what works best for your operations. Plus, the system can be implemented in as little as four weeks, enabling faster access to results and analysis that can positively impact your bottom line.
Paperless Quality Compliance
The Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE Quality module introduces true paperless quality into your shop floor. Built with a full suite of SPC tools, the module allows you to track compliance and manage by exception in real time. Intuitive dashboards allow you to let go of monitoring line checks for completion and offer preventative controls that align to initiatives such as SQF (Safe Quality Food), FSMA (FDA Food Safety Modernization Act), BRC (British Retail Consortium) and GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative).
Robust, Out-of-the-Box Functionality
Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE is designed with role-specific views and offers 12 different languages for its users, meaning it is exceptionally easy-to-use straight out-of-the-box—no coding, no programming. The system fits within your existing work practices and provides visibility into all roles within the organization, presented in a manner that enables immediate action.
Optimize Plan Attainment and OEE
Don’t just measure Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)—manage it. Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE allows your team on the shop floor to take action and respond in real time when losses occur to help you not only achieve but exceed your plan attainment.
With Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE’s collaboration dashboard, your team members within a plant have instant visibility into messages, tasks and notes. This open collaboration platform truly gives everyone on the shop floor a voice to track and resolve issues in real time.
Labor Planning and Tracking
Our solution empowers you to track and manage the actual deployment of labor throughout the factory by shift or line to better control labor costs.
End-to-End Yield Tracking
Identify causes of yield loss of batching all the way to packaging to reduce your manufacturing costs and improve overall plan attainment.
Continuous Improvement Campaign Management
Promote improvement initiatives throughout the factory and wider enterprise, aided by the ability to close the loop between potential and actual improvements by measuring opportunity in financial terms. Users can manage improvement campaigns that directly map to a proven process guided by the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) methodology.
IoT and Data Collection
Accelerate deployment and minimize any disruptions to operations, while also reducing many of the costs associated with an OEE implementation. With this innovation, we can set up sensors on your lines and begin seeing results immediately—you, in fact, could begin seeing visibility into production today.
Sanitation and Changeovers
Use industry-first capabilities to track actual changeover times, manage exceptions and overruns, and optimize your efficiencies around sanitation.
CIP and Tank Changes
Accurately measure clean in progress (CIP) times to minimize production disruption. Countdown clocks track the impact of tank changes on your schedule attainment.
Automated QA Results
Automatically collect QA test results from production line devices including weigh scales, check weighers and metal detectors. Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE can integrate with QA test equipment such as pH, brix and torque, among other QA instrumentation. With our system, you can also conform to regulatory safety requirements while reducing the admin burden across the factory by automating Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), work permits and other safety procedures.
Our Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE consultants help customers manage the all-important cultural change in order to succeed. Because buy-in, risk management and senior-level commitment are essential to changing behavior, we bring together a multi-disciplinary team with expertise in project management, education, automation and continuous improvement practices. This will all be delivered under a proven model designed to take customers live in as little as four weeks and deliver results by 12 weeks. And our global perspective supports multi-national implementations that span continents—following a tested, systematic model that ensures consistency and quick results no matter where the factory is located.
Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE Performance
Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE Performance is at the heart of the solution and delivers the capabilities to drive productivity improvements while managing complex product profiles and differing shift patterns across multiple lines. Whether you need packaged performance metrics, predefined workflows, changeovers, CIP or cost-per-unit tracking at the product, line, shift or plant level, Performance will enable your factory floor to take action and make adjustments in real time. Designed to address the usability needs of a shop floor environment, users will benefit from the simplicity of an app bundled with the power of enterprise software.
Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE Improve
The Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE Improve module offers full transparency into improvement initiatives throughout your factory and enterprise. Using intelligence collected from day-to-day shop floor activities, it establishes a foundation for prioritizing key initiatives, executing root-cause analysis and measuring performance. By categorizing performance issues in line with the top losses that affect production, the module automatically quantifies the greatest opportunities to recover lost hours and production units. Pre-configured campaigns can be created - with established improvement targets - to track against the team’s daily performance.
Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE Analytics
The Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE Analytics module is an easy-to-use business intelligence (BI) viewer that allows users to create reports and dashboards with ease. It allows production and quality data to be analyzed together across different perspectives such as product, line, shift, crew and run length. This level of granularity, especially when combined with the Performance and Improve modules, gives you the power to identify variability patterns, prioritize improvement initiatives, improve service levels and reduce overtime and product costs.
Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE Quality
The Aptean Process Manufacturing OEE Quality module equips operators to perform product quality and other checks as part of a real-time, day-to-day routine. There is no paperwork to file—just touch-screen, handheld technology. Armed with key information, operators can make immediate adjustments to waste and yield issues while ensuring full audit compliance. The solution provides vital pass/fail metrics for stock-in-quarantine, ensuring rapid supervisory sign-off and instant notifications of any quality threshold violations. The module’s direct links to bar-coding and image-recognition hardware also enable full, end-of-line packaging compliance.
