Innovation stage presentation: Machine Performance, OEE and OMAC PackML made easy

Join us on Sunday, November 2, 2014 2:00-2:30 PM at the PACKEXPO N-4570 North Hall Grand Concourse for a presentation on “Machine Performance, OEE and OMAC PackML made easy” or at the booth E-7130 November 2-5 and learn how “ How Wonderware can optimize your plant operations”.
Abstract:

OMAC PackML is a standard for representing machine state, mode and reason code. The standard proposes a common way to represent machine status through a defined interface. This is essential for downtime analysis and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) calculations.
The proposed 2nd edition of ISA Technical Report TR88.00.02 (OMAC PackML) will simplify the use of the standard, but there are still obstacles to overcome. OMAC PackML is traditionally implemented in a PLC, but not all PLCs are suited for this purpose as they do not have the necessary memory, CPU or communication capabilities. In this presentation you will learn how Wonderware InTouch Machine Edition can be used to implement PackML. This is a more flexible, powerful and cost effective solution than replacing the PLC. The presentation will further show how information can be used for downtime analysis and OEE calculations in continuous improvement programs.
Description:
Learn how to implement OMAC PackML and achieve powerful OEE functionality without
having to rip and replace your existing PLC automation infrastructure.These solutions can benefit CPG manufacturing companies and machine builders by reducing the cost of integration and allowing for continuous performance monitoring and
improvement.
