Reliable and real-time data

In order to boost productivity, you need reliable data. Machine Track collects real-time data automatically from production machinery, operators, and from other systems.

Just one user interface

Machine Track enables operational production management and guidance through just one user interface. A diverse range of functions and interface solutions with the company’s other finalize a high quality user experience.

Timely quality management

The system instructs the operator to perform production quality inspections and measurements, as well as in-house controls, on time. An inspection can be performed on the completion of the order or on the machine running time. All anomalies are reported, which makes tracking them and handling complaints easy.

Monitoring the completion of an order

Is the order going to be completed on time, and if not, why? Are we ahead or behind in production? Machine Track shows the status of the order and the related anomalies.

Operator enhances the data

The system provides the operator with a meaningful tool for entering all issues detected in production easily right into the system. Data enriched by the operator is valuable for shop floor management.

Transparency of information in production

Machine Track offers a variety of ways to spread information needed in production. Visually distributed explicit factual data to production workers boosts the sense of community and increases openness and interaction.

“Over the past three years, we have improved the efficiency of our factory by eight per cent. Maint and Machine Track are an important part of the continuous development by which we want to raise our usability and our total utilization rate. In such development, any information we can acquire from the machinery and basic functions needs consistent increase”

"Before, things were corrected by a voice vote. The person who shouted with the loudest voice got his things put right. Now we have uncompromising information in our use and on the basis of it we can put things in the order of importance. We sit by ARROW data every morning and examine how the previous day has gone; every morning Machine Track gives the data with which it is good to start a new day"

”Implementing was simple and we were able to complete the process in a week. The new system was received very well by the personnel, and there have been no complaints whatsoever. This is certainly due to the fact that Machine Track is easy to use and offers concrete assistance in performing the work. We don’t have to record any disturbances in the production on paper any more, for example”

“For example, a couple of years ago we implemented a development project on the bulkhead line based on Lean procedures, in which we utilised the data collected by Machine Track to optimise production. As a result, the production of bulkhead metres was doubled. Now we have implemented Lean methods on other production lines as well”

“When the actual events are visible, it is easy to handle information and to use it in decision making – which is now based on reliable figures. In situations such as these, information jotted down on paper based on a gut feeling is not enough. However, data gathered in this new way leaves no room for explanations or speculations"
