Reduce Downtime with SensrTrx
Every Minute a Machine Is Not Running Represents Lost Revenue
Availability measures the amount of time the machine is running compared to the planned schedule. You have to measure it to reduce downtime. To determine the Availability of a machine or cell SensrTrx collects and calculates downtime using alarms and other signals directly from the controls or PLCs on the equipment. SensrTrx can also augment this information with input from operators or supervisors.
Track All Stops by Reason
This includes short stops or micro stoppages as well. Short stops are stoppages that would not normally be recorded by the operator, for example if a small adjustment needed to be made that took less the 5 minutes. However, these short stops can happen many times a day and add up to significant numbers. Including:
- Number of downtime events by reason
- Total duration in minutes
- Average duration in minutes
