Reliable real-time data

Genuine productivity leaps require reliable data. Machine Track collects information automatically in real-time from production machinery, operators and integrated systems.

Just one user interface

With Machine Track you can manage your entire operational production through a single interface. A diverse range of functions and integrations with third party systems complete the superb user experience.

Perfectly timed quality control

The system guides the operator in timely quality inspections, measurements and in-house controls. Inspections can be performed based on completed orders or machine running time. All deviations are reported, making tracking and handling complaints easy.

Tracking orders

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 deviations.

Operator enriched data

Machine Track provides the operator with an easy-to-use tool for documenting production issues right into the system. Operator enriched data is a valuable resource for shop floor management.

Transparency of information

Machine Track offers a variety of ways to display information needed in production. Production data illustrated for the needs of the operative staff boosts team spirit, openness and interaction.

"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"
