CADMAN®-OEE Software Analyzes Equipment Effectiveness

Press release date: Oct 26, 2012

Akron, NY - LVD Strippit offers an Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) module as part of its CADMAN® family of offline software. CADMAN®-OEE adds the next level of integration to CADMAN software technology, providing a means to analyze equipment performance in order to fully optimize efficiency and productivity.

CADMAN-OEE examines and reports on equipment productivity and performance. It provides analysis in simple, easy-to-understand graphical charts and uses an intuitive presentation of the 'real' shop floor information to systematically improve the production process by increasing uptime and throughput through closely monitoring machine availability, performance (theoretical cycle time versus real cycle), and quality.

CADMAN-OEE is an extension of LVD Strippit’s CADMAN offline software, a PC-based CAD/CAM system that operates on a Windows® platform. CADMAN is designed to streamline the fabricating process through a single, complete offline system for the design, unfolding, punching, laser cutting and bending of sheet metal parts. CADMAN-OEE provides an added integration module to measure equipment effectiveness for a variety of sheet metalworking machinery, laser, punching and bending including non-LVD Strippit machinery (additional drivers required).

The LVD Group is a leading manufacturer of a comprehensive range of sheet metal/plate working machine tools and software solutions, including laser cutting systems, punch presses, press brakes, guillotine shears and mid-level automation systems, integrated and supported by its CADMAN® PC-based Windows® compatible software.
