Until now companies only had two choices: retrofit their equipment with various expensive sensors or entirely forgo all the advantages of Industry 4.0. With FactorE.OS this is no longer the case. The instillation of the electrical sensor is quick, painless and most importantly can often take place without any production downtime. Once the sensor is installed the learning begins. The Factor.E OS begins to compute, analyzing thousands of events per second, and learns what the equipment is doing. After a short introduction period, the data will become available. And because the solution is cloud based the information is available anywhere. From the shop floor to the top floor. Should a scenario arise that the tool has not yet seen a message will be displayed to let the user know an unknown event has occurred and to ask for further information.
FactorE.OS is a Product of the Factor-E Analytics GmbH.
By measuring and analyzing the electrical consumption alone FactorE.OS can provide production data, equipment utilization, resource consumption and errors. In addition, productivity and efficiency indicators (KPIs) are calculated in our cloud based software solution and can be viewed live anywhere in user configurable web-dashboards. Customized role-specific dashboard and notifications provides transparency and the ability to react to production as things happen allowing for increased equipment utilization and productivity. FactorE.OS monitors performance and when deviations occur alarms can be triggered. Unproductive machine times are identified and highlighted using optimization routines
