Measure Your Efficiency in Real Time

With Thrive, you’ll always know your production line efficiency. Our automated downtime tracking software measures production output and compares it against your line’s potential. With production run records, you can easily track shift efficiency or analyze trends by line.

 

How efficiently does your line produce each product? Load your potential machine output based on SKU or product, and Thrive’s software will automatically adjust the efficiency calculation.

Know Your Biggest Source of Downtime Now

Thrive tracks your line’s efficiency, as well as the cause, length and frequency of downtime events.  Use the built-in reports to see the biggest source of downtime, all in real time.

 

Seeing the cause of downtime events is just the first step. Thrive’s unique algorithm calculates the impact on uptime and production each downtime event would have if fixed. Prioritize equipment maintenance, equipment purchases and other action steps by the expected results. Thrive provides the insight you need to make true data-driven decisions.

Planned Downtimes

Planned downtime events are tracked separately, allowing you to set a goal time for each reason. If the event exceeds the goal time, the operator assigns a reason for the delay. Are all change overs happening at the same pace? Thrive provides insight that will help you analyze the change over process, standardize work and reduce change over time. Are break times ending on time? Seeing the data helps build a culture of ownership and accountability.

"A few months after installing the Thrive Downtime Tracking System

we identified several key issues with our manufacturing line.  Once corrected, our efficiency sky rocketed from 39% to 75%.”

Pat Kinnee, Splenda Continuous Improvement Engineer

"In 2015, we ran 8% better than our budgeted throughput standards,

so I consider it a win. Now we’re in a position where our other plants are interested in implementing the software.

Pete Szelwach, Plant Manager at Lassonde Pappas and Company, Inc.
