Knowing the efficiency or effectiveness of your plant equipment is vital if you want to maintain a profitable business. Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and Plant Uptime have become the most commonly used operational metrics today, and the starting point for MES software and manufacturing intelligence investment in many cases. OEE uses three measures: quality, throughput, and equipment availability, to provide you with a tangible metric that can be used to baseline performance and set operational standards for improvements.
Operating your production equipment most productively starts with detailed, objective and structured plant equipment downtime and efficiency information. Especially in highly automated production lines, equipment downtime is the main reason for production losses.

Wonderware MES Software connects non-intrusively to your existing automation systems to generate highly accurate and timely views of equipment performance that you can use to drive improvements. Critical equipment downtime and efficiency information is communicated in real time to operators and decision-makers who can take immediate actions resulting in improved plant performance and productivity, by arming with the most up to date operational results.
