Mr. Willy Wu, Business Development Manager of Advantech Industrial IoT Group, said, “Manufacturers today are seeking efficiencies in production, and the way to transform their business through Industry 4.0. Advantech offers its latest iFactory SRPs to help customers realize smart factory from data acquisition, data computing and visualization, to central management, where users can improve productivity, reduce loss and increase profit.”

Overall Equipment Effectiveness Solution

Factory Energy Management Solution

The newest iFactory SRPs include Overall Equipment Effectiveness Solution and Factory Energy Management Solution. The overall equipment effectiveness solution can easily realize real-time machine availability management for maximizing operational excellence. The factory energy management solution can quickly implement centralized monitoring and fata management for energy efficiency optimization. The computing carrier can be selected, either on-premises server or the cloud platform.

Overall Equipment Effectiveness Dashboards

Real-time Production Management
Machine status can be monitored as machine running, error, idle, and machine stopped. Integrated with MES, the work-in-process (WIP) information can be connected to machine status for analyzing and improving overall production efficiency.

Machine Availability Management
The runtime of each machine can be counted to calculate machine availability that reflects the percentage of planned production time the machine is available for operation. Machine availability can be utilized to evaluate the return on investment (ROI).

Production Management: Day Shift & Night Shift
The comparative production analysis of day and night shifts can be examined in detail on a daily basis, to further evaluate and improve the performance.

Changeover Efficiency Management
The average changeover time can be calculated to analyze daily efficiency. To figure out the small differences, accurate scheduling changeovers at the right time can improve operation efficiency.

Factory Energy Management Dashboards


Energy Consumption Overview
An overview of past energy profiles and current energy consumption data provides a systematic approach to identify problem areas and prime targets for energy reduction. 

Energy KPI Management
KPI settings allow users to measure and review energy usage and efficiency of each department, reducing energy waste and improving energy efficiency.

Energy Consumption and Cost Analysis
Production is usually the largest energy consuming part of a factory. Energy consumption data and costs can be analyzed and compared with utility bills to help improve energy efficiency and wastage.

Machine Utilization and Energy Efficiency
Production-integrated energy management enables machine availability tracking with machine energy consumption, to enhance operational efficiency and allow preventive maintenance.

Accelerating Your Digital Transformation with iFactory SRPs

The iFactoyr SRPs support features of KPI management, alarm notifications and remote access. Production KPI allows production performance to be measured and compared for real-time management. It also provides immediate customizable notifications so that appropriate people can be alerted in an unexpected factory floor condition or event. Mobile access to dashboard empowers operators to view data and get insights proactively. It also supports managers to ascertain business intelligence, make decisions, and determine appropriate actions to take. Moreover, user-centric, custom dashboards provide a quick overview on factory operational KPIs. The dashboard visualizations include trends, graphs, diagrams, tables and process displays. It also allows users to view real-time and historical data in the Industry 4.0 Situation Room to support the managers to have efficient data-driven decision making.

Mr. Tony Liu, Investment Manager of Advantech Corporate Investment (ACI) Division, further described, “We provide iFactory SRPs to domain-focused systems integrators (DFSI). Our DFSI partnership model is focused on regional and vertical markets, whereby we offer existing SRPs to our regional partners with system integration services for their end customers. This involves training to help DFSI partners become more familiar with our SRPs so they can deliver the ‘last mile’ service to customers. They also offer customization and after-sales support while establishing key domain specialist partners to work with in that region in the future. This creates a win-win situation going forward.”
