With a share of more than 10% in the processing business, the chemical industry represents one of the most important business branches. In order to maintain or even extend this position in the international competition as far as "Low-cost-Competition" is concerned, the Overall Asset / Equipment Effectiveness (OAE / OEE) must be raised. The most important key to implementing Operational Excellence are optimum shift transitions and a global knowledge management in order to significantly enhance the plant availability and to guarantee a high product yield.
When operating machines and plants, events occur that must be documented in writing in shift books together with the measures taken. In a large number of companies this is being done and has been done by paperwork.
The digital shift book Finito will make handwritten shift logs redundant and provide a company-wide homogenous recording of information and instructions. All information gained will be stored revision-safe in a centralized data base. This way up to 90% of the time needed can be saved e.g. when doing research.
The digital recording of shift messages allows a swift statistic evaluation. Malfunctions and errors at machines and plants can be detected manually and – as far as technically possible - also be documented automatically which is of essential significance when it comes to flow manufacturing processes.
Accumulated data will be directly taken over in the electronic shift book Finito and serve as a basis for individual reports as well as a knowledge data base for troubleshooting or optimizing work flows and safety measures.
A comprehensive configuration module for administrating reports, shift times and user rights makes Finito Digital Shift Book a flexible and highly efficient tool for industrial companies.
