Original Press Release:
Vorne XL800 Data Collection/Plant Floor Visual Management Tool
The XL800 integrates everything needed for plant floor performance management in one package, providing an easy-to-implement "bolt-on" solution that can be up and running in literally minutes (Vorne's Lean Approach To Lean(TM)). Equally important, it requires no change to existing processes while providing over 100 key performance indicators to front-line employees and managers alike - all in real time. Conceived as a "Swiss army knife" for plant floor productivity, the XL800 is a "six-in-one" product that combines a large-area visual display, a high-performance production monitor, expandable I/O, a multiple channel communication hub, a program executioner and a data warehouse - all in one package. The XL800 visual display provides an open canvas for delivering real-time information that informs, alerts and motivates employees. The display screen incorporates ultra-bright LED technology and anti-glare lensing for crisp factory-floor readability - even at distances of 100 feet and beyond. Up to 16 concurrent visual controls enable mixing text, graphics, and tables in any combination on any screen. Popular screen formats include KPI tables, break timers, down event statistics, SMED/changeover timers, production status indicators, shift scorecards, safety messages with visuals, human resource announcements, and current date/time. Screens automatically change context with plant-floor events (e.g. line down, break start, shift change), and virtual pages allow unlimited amounts of data to be displayed. The XL800 production monitor includes eight tightly focused performance management modules: Count, Rate, Cycle Time, Production Time, Visual OEE(TM), Target, Goal, and Process Time. Designed for plug-and-play simplicity, just two sensors can generate 100+ process variables and provide highly accurate automated run/down detection. For example, the Visual OEE(TM) module delivers a real-time OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) score concurrently for job and shift, as well as the underlying Availability, Performance and Quality metrics. The net effect is to provide immediately actionable information that truly opens a window to plant floor performance. All process variables generated by the XL800 production monitor are also exposed through data warehouse registers. Register data can be linked and embedded in visual display messages, accessed through any of the communication ports, or even reflected back to Display-Pro® XL for inclusion in dynamic web pages with enterprise visibility. Complete XL800 solutions begin at $2,990 and most applications are served in this price range. Online information resources are available at: www.vorne.com/displays/xl800.htm James A.
