  • Integrates plant floor with your business Production data Guaranteeing production process information flow in realtime, enterprise A ‘must have’ for any manufacturing company. MovTracer © comes with a acquisition wide, from shop floor sensors directly to the company managerial offices, is the suite of historian modules which can be selected and used for collecting data, in realtime and true solution for improving productivity efficiency, reducing loses and increasing and where key indicators (KPI, OEE) can be represented in displays using monitoring main profits. In fact, the ideal production lies on the real factory machine capabilities an “Analyst Web-based” component to analyse data and production performances of working non-stop at maximum speed, without downtimes or inactivity and “dashboards”. Thanks to the MovTracer © solution, manufacturing companies(KPI) allow you to product reject threats. Today staying market competitive is paramount but can truly discover the real productive capacity of their enterprise systems,make productivity unsustainable if you don’t use the right technology. machines and production lines, easily pin-point criticalities and imperfections improvements, Production lines will be prone to standstills and will produce defective and get the right information needed to improve efficiency. Enhancing reduce loses and pieces if the machines are unable to work at their full capacity or meet demands performances to become more efficient will improve productivity, increase profits. made of them. This is often the case of misinformed factory management on add more value to production system activity, reduce investment recovery realtime factory floor performances. times and re-enforce company Even though equipped with OEE indicator competitiveness. Globalization today knowledge, they still do not have means manufacturing companies cannot systems that run efficiently to provide risk being slack and non-competitive productivity improvement. This is where if they want to survive. Staying MovTracer©11 steps in, the most simple competitive, strategic steps must be and affordable solution to manage and taken to reduce production costs by aggregate information flowing directly improving production machine use from production lines straight into the and flexibility to manufacture top hands of company managers, laid out in quality goods. MovTracer © has been the plainest and simplest way ever. An created just for this by offering cost essential aid to close that gap between contained tools designed for collecting shop floor productivity, managerial offices realtime information flowing from and improve enterprise-wide resource manufacturing points, connecting planning. Based on years of tried and company IT tools (ERP, SAP) directly tested Industrial Connection and Data to production lines and analysing Collection technology experience, Progea coefficient productivity processes using have come up with the best solution for tables and charts in an integrated plant floor and business integration with and open architecture through web the MovTracer© platform. access-based solutions. 3
