In case of unplanned downtimes, alarms are triggered. Timely routing to qualified personnel is important to allow quick troubleshooting. Preventive maintenance, regular inspections and repair actions ensure the required availability of all technical equipment but must be managed accordingly.
In many factories, existing SCADA systems help operators to control processes and to get notifications or „alarms“ in case unplanned events occur. However, most SCADA systems are bound to static HMI panels in a control room. resulting in long reaction times in case of alarms .
In many factories, paper documentation is used for repair procedures. Since a paper process is very static, service technicians often need extra time to collect spare parts or tools required for the repair routine. A fully digital maintenance procedure is needed to alert the technician ahead of time to collect the needed tools and spare parts.
Preventive maintenance helps to avoid unplanned downtimes as maintenance orders can be planned ahead. However, in some cases the assignment of tasks to service engineers is challenging as the right software tools and transparency about required inspections are missing.
Coordinating tasks and sending alarms to qualified personnel are standard features of the WORKERBASE platform.
It helps to reduce unplanned machine downtimes by providing preventive maintenance workflows, monitoring of production parameters and real-time notifications in case of malfunctions.
The reduction of machine downtimes increases value-added processing time. Preventive maintenance, regular inspetions and repair actions ensure the required availability of all machines and technical equipment.
