Insight | December 2018 update - part 2
Performance KPIs - including OEE - now even more integrated
Welcome to part 2 of our AVEVA Insight December 2018 update. Previously I covered the new Discover Insight and Insight Assistant which helps new users get up and running quickly. Today, we will look at enhancements to the "doing" part of the Insight platform, and discover how it's now even easier for operational users to visualise process performance.
What's new in December 2018 - part 2
- Use all the features of Insight on your OEE data
- Understand KPIs and performance while mobile
- Be alerted to KPI variations as soon as possible
Use all the features of Insight on your OEE data
Last year we introduced MES/MOM cloud capabilities to Insight which enabled users to monitor equipment efficiency and availability using dedicated screens. Now we've closed the loop by historising KPIs including OEE in the same way we do other plant data; allowing it to be visualised on a chart, dashboard, or alert.
Search is also now connected to your KPIs. For example, type OEE into the search, click 'Add All' and hey presto you have a status board of all your metrics. Toggle tags on or off, or switch to different chart types. Once you are happy you can save the chart for later reference - including relevant keywords - for just yourself, or your team to view. Here you can see I have added all OEE and then refined my selection down to Houston OEE:
This enables you to trend OEE over time, compare efficiency between lines or sites, easily setup status boards for quick reference of how equipment is performing. Great tools to help operators and continuous improvement teams to monitor and improve process efficiency.
Using all Insight's existing features against your KPIs and pretty soon you've got yourself a powerful OEE dashboard showing performance across your site or enterprise. Insight is even smart enough to know when you create new content with the same keywords so you can quickly update your dashboards with all the relevant data.
Understand KPIs and performance while mobile
Once you have saved all that great content it is automatically available on the Insight mobile app. Just choose your OEE content from the list for a complete picture of efficiency at your fingertips.
Be alerted to KPI variations as soon as possible
You can even set and receive alerts on any of your OEE tags - using the browser or the mobile app - so you can be notified immediately if something starts to fall outside of your preferred operating parameters. Since data is available anywhere, anytime, you can respond to system changes immediately - you can understand and manage downtime, even when you're away from site. Cool huh!
