Bosch Rexroth is releasing Improvidus, a platform for tracking, analyzing and enhancing connected productivity. The software is intended to provide the transparency needed to move effectively and profitably toward a connected operation. Improvidus connects users to resources such as big data analytics, cloud data storage, training, consulting and projects. 

Improvidus offers an impressive collection of visualization tools that can be utilized according to your company’s needs. Featured online capabilities include:

  • The Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) Visualization Tool, which gives a detailed description of equipment availability, production output and deviation information. The OEE tool provides a simple solution for making educated decisions for connected industry investments, the company says. 
  • The Multi-Metric Pareto and Multi-Metric Pareto Recommendations Tools, which improve visualization, filtering and drill-down for deviation data sets, guiding users and providing recommendations by locating filtering options.
  • The Event Correlation Tool, which provides insight into correlating events and time between those events, enabling users to address the root cause of an issue. 
  • The Word Cloud Tool, which associates word usage with impact to help pinpoint systemic issues. 

In conjunction with Improvidus software, Bosch Rexroth offers lean consulting and training. Consulting services include monthly data analysis, reviews by a trained consultant and advice for next steps.

  • Understanding MTConnect Agents and Adapters

    MTConnect agents and their corresponding device adapters are simply small computer programs that work together so that MTConnect can make shop equipment and networks more readily connectible. In a nutshell, adapters enable existing shopfloor devices “to speak MTConnect,” and agents enable MTConnect messages and data files to be transmitted across a network to MTConnect-compatible applications.

  • MTConnect Is For Real

    Introduced at IMTS 2008, this communications protocol for CNC machines and other manufacturing equipment is already helping shops and plants implement effective machine monitoring systems. Although these "early adopters" are motivated by the long-term promise of enterprise-wide efficiency gains, their experience with pilot projects shows that benefits derived in the short term are substantial and worthwhile.
