Hertzler Systems announced that it has implemented standardized tracking of efficiency, uptime/downtime tracking, and OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) in the latest edition of GainSeeker® Suite Software.
Goshen, IN, January 21, 2011 – Hertzler Systems Inc., a leading provider of SPC Sofware, KPI Software, and Operational Intelligence software, announced today that it has implemented standardized tracking of efficiency, uptime/downtime tracking, and OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) in the latest edition of its popular GainSeeker® Suite Software.
According to Tom Albrecht, Vice President of Business Development, the new capabilities extend the product’s reach deep into manufacturing operations. “For the last few years,” he said, “our customers have been pushing the boundaries of where they use GainSeeker Suite. One area where we’ve seen a lot of interest is efficiency and uptime or downtime tracking.”
“This made a lot of sense to us, since it takes advantage of GainSeeker’s core strengths: automated data acquisition, dashboard visualization, and drill down analytics,” he said. What we wanted to do,” he added, “is remove the guesswork from implementing an OEE solution and guide users through an implementation that would make the most of the GainSeeker Suite and maximize the value of the OEE data. Our development team has done a brilliant job and achieved just that.”
The new functionality provides standard operational definitions for key OEE metrics, hooks to the major sources of the underlying OEE data, and standardized dashboards to visualize OEE performance over time. All standard components can be modified to support business-specific needs.
