Software helps boost plant productivity

ABB recently introduced OptimizeIT Real Time Production Intelligence (Real-TPI) software.


Wickliffe, OH - ABB recently introduced OptimizeIT Real Time Production Intelligence (Real-TPI) software.

OptimizeIT is designed to automate data collection and analysis, and provides customized, detailed reports of production performance improvement opportunities. OptimizeIT Real-TPI software combines the analytical power of three standard production evaluation processes:

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) enables comparing production data of different products, shifts and plants;

Root Cause Analysis uses areas identified by OEE as a potential problem and narrows down root causes so timely corrective action can be taken; and

Total Productive Maintenance adjusts production procedures with the aim of improving production efficiency.

Additional, OptimizeIT Real-TPI provides real time monitoring and archiving of production events.

OptimizeIT Real-TPI consists of modules for data acquisition, data manipulation and storage, and visualization and reporting. Each module can be distributed over a local area network from most programmable logic controllers or distributed control systems. Optimize IT Real-TPI can retrieve and export data to/from most relational databases, reads values from text files, and handles event data in the millisecond range.

OptimizeIT's audit trail permits data record archiving, but prevents removing or manipulating data records.
