- About Us
ScoreKeeper is a machine agnostic solution that provides accurate, real-time information and minimizes data entry by the machine operator. Real-time data (such as machine speed or kicks per minute) is recorded automatically in real time. The result is that you can see the actual state of the machine whether it is in setup or running or down, how long it has been in setup, the speed at which it is running, etc. You do not have to wait for the operator to input the job state or the number of pieces. Also provided is a detailed chronology of events for the machine such as when the operator logged in and started the machine, the orders ran, the states for each order as they are running, the setup time, speeds, and downtime. The server provides the information in the form of dashboards at the supervisor's or manager's desktop or tablet.
When the machine is down the operator selects the reason for the downtime on a tablet or computer at the machine from a plant defined list of reasons. These reasons will show up on the chronology of events and in a report of down-times. You can determine ways in which downtime can be reduced so that you can maximize up-time.
The actual state of the machine can be viewed on any computer, tablet, or smartphone at any time. A large format Scoreboard at each machine displays pertinent numbers for the operating crew in vivid colors so that they are aware of their performance vs goals and motivates them to improve.
You can get alerts from the Scorekeeper on downtime events (for example greater than 10 minutes) or setup time events via email or smartphone messages. This permits you to manage by exception.
The performance of the machine is summarized in the form of shift reports. Orders ran, the specifics for each order, the efficiencies(production/up-time/waste), Downtime is shown in the form of a pie chart and detailed lists of downtime reasons are also available. Machine OEE is also calculated by using the individual efficiencies. In addition, reports can show historical metrics for the past year. All report data can be extracted to Excel for further analysis.
