ShopFloorConnect 6.0 Collects Data from All Machines for OEE Reporting
IMTS Spark: Version 6.0 of Wintriss Controls Group’s ShopFloorConnect OEE and shopfloor data collection software gathers downtime and production efficiency data from every machine.
Version 6.0 of Wintriss Controls Group’s ShopFloorConnect OEE and shopfloor data collection software gathers downtime and production efficiency data from every machine in the manufacturing operation, displays it in real time, and produces manufacturing reports, including detailed OEE reports in a variety of formats. The software can increase manufacturing capacity and profitability by identifying and quantifying excessive production losses and bottlenecks, enabling the shop to take measures for reducing machine downtime.
A redesigned format provides faster and easier access to all data, offering several features for more robust and user-friendly reporting and dashboard customization, flexible scheduling capabilities and machine interface enhancements. Users can now track the reasons for scrap. Version 6.0 also allows users to manually enter good and bad part-count data when machines with batch processes make it impossible or impractical to automatically count parts as they are produced. The latest version also supports multiple languages and time zones.
