With the ABB Ability™ Knowledge Manager production and downtime management (PIMS and MES) system functions you gain very important insight on the downtime information of your process and can use it to generate advanced KPI calculations, including Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
Knowledge Manager PIMS & MES functions support easy identification of failing equipment.
With Pareto analysis you can determine the most costly weak points in your production process. Its ability to separate low production periods from production stops enables you to focus maintenance analyses on further reducing production costs.
Reliable statistical information about the causes of downtime provide the basis for corrective action. This information is essential for justification of investments like capital expenditure or personnel training.
