Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
Although management are always looking to improve performance, measuring productivity is often retrospective and undertaken separately to the processing cycle. This can be time consuming and prone to error.
Despite being an extremely important function, monitoring performance can be ad-hoc. It often takes a back seat to seemingly more pressing issues, such as meeting last minute order changes.
Integreater® enables food processors to continuously monitor productivity. Management set key performance indicators for their business and the e-MES then integrates with the processing cycle to measure the relevant data.
Information is presented in real time using simple colour-code technology. This allows operators to easily identify and rectify any issues that are affecting performance.
Management have an accurate, up-to-date view of performance and are able to identify any trends. In order to understand the reasons behind performance issues, the KPI module can also be used in combination with Integreaterâ€™s Business Analysis and OEE tools.
