For machinery manufacturer the machine is the heart of the business model and the main customer touchpoint. Access to the installed base is therefore key and an asset management system is ideal for capturing valuable machine data.
Automating processes with advanced industrial machinery is common practice among machine builders these days. Yet there are challenging times ahead. Increasing globalisation and competition lead to increasing price pressure. Machine builders often distinguish themselves through their innovations and speedy service. Fortunately, delivering quality service can result in savings that offer significant benefits.
Availability and performance are the critical KPIs for a machine. However, the targets for those cannot always be met. Often, the reasons for that are not transparent and similar errors tend to occur several times before being noticed. Downtime Tracking can help to obtain a better overview and raise the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
