Food and drink IT specialist CSB-System International has developed a new software programme that provides optimal planning, control and monitoring of production and packing systems to ensure consistently high levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
The CSB linecontrol software establishes an online link with all equipment on the line, enabling real-time information to be provided on current capacity utilisation and the performance of individual machines. This data can be accessed on the production line or delivered remotely to a specific computer.
Apart from identifying potential bottlenecks or other stoppages on the line, the software can also pinpoint any problem to the exact machine for fast targeted troubleshooting, minimising unplanned system shutdowns or downtime. CSB linecontrol software also helps companies reduce rejects and incorrect labelling of products.
An optional component, CSB ecocontrol can also be specified for the capture of environmental information, providing details of elements such as energy consumption on the line.
CSB’s linecontrol system ideally supports long-term multi-shift operations by automating planning and monitoring, eliminating any impact to tasks caused by frequent changes in staff on duty.
