Get the most out of your machines performance to maximise your return on investment.  

Our proven software solutions enable shop floor operators to analyse their machines performance during operation. Our unique systems collect essential data in the background to provide an analytical description of its performance, and any faults that arise, whilst highlighting the reasons why. This information is then formulated and presented using concise graphical representation, helping to identify loss in production. 


  • Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) of a machine line based on availability
  • Machine performance analysis and reporting
  • Downtime analysis and reporting
  • Power consumption of the machine

It also provides a platform to allow further improvements to shop floor operations with architecture that includes:

  • A high specification touchscreen industrial PC
  • An industry standard Allen-Bradley CompactLogix PLC

Downtime can result from many variables such as shift changes, cleaning, and maintenance among many others, but our systems helps to identify how and where operation could improve to ensure operators get the maximum performance.

Here you can see an example of a trial run on a paper mill machine over a single 8 
hour shift. The bar chart highlights the downtime counts by reason, and the total downtime period in minutes. 
This in turn allows shop floor managers to act upon such data to ensure a smoother 
and more efficient shift pattern, in order to improve productivity, thus resulting in a better return on investment.
