For many manufacturers increasing a line’s output at a minimal investment is crucial. Plastiv plastic factory, using P-CIM software, found the way to improve performance by analyzing and detecting losses, failures and inefficiencies.
Running on an ALFA DS-20 mainframe, P-CIM monitors the performance of the machinery, production lines and processes in terms of availability, speed and quality.
Equipment functionality is maximized by controlling and eliminating the following:
- Unplanned downtime loss due to machinery failure, providing availability
- Speed loss due to idle equipment, minor stoppage or speed reduction , providing performance
- Losses due to defects in the process or machine start up time, providing quality
