SCADAware, Inc.has announced its StatusWatch production intelligence and plant efficiency product line. SCADAware developed its StatusWatch product line to monitor asset utilization and analyze plant efficiency. The Andon-based system consists of visual products and systems that interact to alert management, maintenance, and operators of a quality or process problem within a facility.
StatusWatch products have consistently helped manufacturers achieve a 20 percent or more increase in Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) by maximizing plant efficiency through real-time data collection, timely decision making, improved accountability, and continuous improvement.
StatusWatch Live will bring implementation of the production intelligence products to a broader base of manufacturers. It is a standalone, user-friendly system that does not require the use of the customer’s server. StatusWatch Live’s primary focus is on live data relevant to the current situation on a shop floor. Current machine/Andon states, discrete part counts, current program number, and other live data is collected and used by StatusWatch Live for notifications, display, and reporting.
“We are excited to introduce StatusWatch Live. We are designing this product to appeal to a broader base of manufacturers desiring to improve production processes and OEE. This is a plug-and-play product designed for optimal user experience and ease-of-use,” said Rick Caldwell, president of SCADAware.
