Data acquisition to monitor industrial production

Retrieve your shop floor data in real time.

With the Cimag Production software – Data Acquisition feature, you can easily and effectively collect machine times, causes of machine downtimes, and labor times by using different techniques and hardware. Regardless of the hardware, communication with the server is achieved on the company’s Ethernet, by wire connection or by radio waves connection such as WIFI.

Through this function, you can not only ensure OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) monitoring in real time, assessed using reliable data, but also focus on relevant actions leading to continuous improvements.

Production Monitoring Software Features:

  • Automated and real-time data extraction
  • Retrieve machine information (direct connection to terminals)
  • Monitoring of machine status (production, setup, cleaning, downtimes, breakdowns, etc.)
  • Monitoring cycle times, finished products, and scraps
  • Possibility to set up a direct connection to Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) or by Open Platform Communications (OPC)
  • Management of local devices directly from workstations
  • Management of raw materials and components by barcodes or RFID

Benefits of Production Monitoring:

  • Easily collect machine times, root causes of downtimes and production counters
  • Ensure the reliability of information in your workshop
  • Reduce time spent entering production data in the ERP
  • Collect mixed data from PLCs, scales, production counters, etc.
  • Monitor productivity and production process parameters

Labor Management Software

Monitor your workforce’s activities in real time.

The Cimag Production software – Labor Management feature offers a thorough set of attributes enabling your organization to  manage labor,  whether it is on a quantitative (attendance management) or qualitative level (monitoring labor during production).

The  labor scheduling module answers similar labor needs expressed in the  scheduling module by enabling you to visualize and modify employee’s assignments to production centers, duties, assigned schedules and anticipated absences.

The module generates numerous findings and calculations available to your organization. For instance, it allows you to connect and compare  attendance times and  occupancy times.
