Organizing alarm management in the context of OEE is always a tradeoff between having short response times and efficient utilization of maintenance staff. Using the WORKERBASE Alarm Suite only nearby technicians with the right skills are alerted on their Smartwatches. By using interactive alarm applications repair times are shortened and unnecessary roundtrips are avoided thereby significantly reducing the Mean Time To Repair (MTTR).
The benefits of using Smartwatches for alarming maintenance staff
Reduce waiting times for service and maintenance with real-time notifications on the wrist. Ensure that corrective actions are initiated as quickly as possible. Alerts can be assigned to individual experts or entire groups, e.g. all service technicians.
WORKERBASE supports task assignments based on different criteria such as location or skills. This avoids roundtrips as only employees at the right position are notified.
Modify workflows for certain alarm types to create different apps for each alarm condition. Shorten repair times as workers get individual instructions per alarm type.
Connect to machines and send real-time alarms to operators. Adapt production cycles and reduce machine downtime. Enable faster response times and shorter change over times.
Alarm Apps are the new way to handle mobile alarm management. Users can be assigned a freely configurable workflow that can be specific to a particular production line, type of machine, error condition or even be created for a dedicated machine. Using a powerful rules based configuration system, alarm administrators can maintain a wide range of influencing parameters and optimize their response and repair times.
Integrating the WORKERBASE Alarm Suite is a matter of a few minutes
Utilizing the revolutionary data integration framework, WORKERBASE can integrate alarms from PLC controllers, IoT sensors as well as any legacy system. You can generate alarm conditions out a machine failure the same way as using SAP as an alarm source. Using the prioritization and filter functions, your alarms are guaranteed to reach the right people. Setting up the following protocols can be achieved in under 20 minutes.
With the WORKERBASE management application you can manage user access and define routing rules for any kind of alarm. The progress of all activated alarms can be tracked in real time.
Gain actionable insights about how your operational processes look like. WORKERBASE events can easily be exported to other systems. Setting up management reports and escalation chains on a range of different communication channels such as email can also be done with great flexibility.
