The Production Performance Manager is a production information and evaluation system. In near-real time, it collects production and machine data, combines it to produce a visual representation, and communicates defined events to the production worker, who may be involved directly or indirectly. The Production Performance Manager provides a snapshot of the current status of individual machines, and of the production system as a whole. This new availability of data and direct feedback provides optimum support for your continuous improvement process. Optional additional modules and add-ons augment this software solution with specialist functionalities, e.g to guarantee process quality and for rule-based data processing.
