ei3's New SiteOutlook Sentinel Monitoring System Enhances Process Line Productivity for Converters and Manufacturers
Montvale, NJ (January 22, 2002) - ei3 Corporation, the leading provider of hosted applications that maximize manufacturing productivity, today announced the release of SiteOutlook SentinelSM, a process line monitor and analysis tool for manufacturers and converters. The real-time, quality-impact monitoring system can help increase productivity, reduce
material costs and improve the quality of finished products. The
online system enables decision makers to view and analyze key process line metrics anywhere, at any time.
SiteOutlook SentinelSM monitors each machine metric that affects output quality throughout current process runs. After establishing optimum production metrics with a successful benchmark run, SentinelSM compares each metric's real-time changes in the current run to 'best case' standards. Applying Six Sigma rules, lean manufacturing concepts, and other analysis, SentinelSM triggers automatic alerts when any process
variation strays beyond an acceptable limit to enable quick resolution of problem areas. "SiteOutlook SentinelSM is an extremely effective tool to enhance in-house quality control and maintenance efforts," said Brett Smith, CEO of ei3 Corporation. "SentinelSM provides an accurate, real-time view into complex manufacturing operations. Manufacturing executives and plant managers are now empowered with a tool that translates raw data into a higher level of useable knowledge." Manufacturers activate SentinelSM through the Internet to
monitor current production conditions. This information is analyzed using advanced statistical algorithms, which filter out real problems from nuisance alarms. Once problems are identified, an email or pager alert is automatically sent out to the responsible party. From this information, users are then prompted to take corrective action. SiteOutlook SentinelSM is currently available to qualified customers on a monthly subscription basis.
