MES Sigma automatiza el OEE en el Perú

El Monitoreo de la Efectividad Global de los Equipos (OEE por sus siglas en inglés) es un valioso conjunto de métricas que explica o demuestra cuán bien opera una máquina, un proceso o una planta. OEE es un índice que se calcula midiendo los Indicadores Clave de Rendimiento (“Key Performance Indicators” - KPI). Estos indicadores incluyen medidas tales como disponibilidad, desempeño y calidad. La “disponibilidad” mide qué tan seguido una máquina está conectada y produciendo. El “desempeño” mide el ritmo o la velocidad de producción. La “calidad” calcula la cantidad de unidades disconformes que se obtienen durante la producción.

Surry Chemicals Creates Brilliant Results for the Garment Industry

Organic and synthetic fibers are not naturally a consistent shade of white. Imperfections in the fibers and the result of the handling process means that fibers used in the garment industry must eventually be bleached to produce a brilliant, even shade of white. For large hosiery producers such as Hanes, consistently producing the exact shade of white for a particular line requires a controlled dose of chemicals that will deliver the same result for every batch of socks produced.

Automated Batch Process Analysis for the Food and Beverage Industry

Few industries are regulated as closely as the food and beverage industry. Food safety standards are particularly critical to public health, and there are many regulating bodies that audit and dictate the standards that food manufacturers must meet. Among these regulatory bodies are the FDA (Food and Drug Administration in the United States), and independent organizations such as the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative). Manufacturers of food products are often audited by these agencies for food safety, and as a result, recordkeeping for food manufacturers is vital to the process of food manufacturing and packaging.
