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.
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a key performance indicator used in the manufacturing industry to determine the efficiency of its plant operation. Most companies are not aware of the full capacity of their manufacturing equipment. OEE allows you to measure and visualize your plant’s operational effectiveness, and create actionable steps to improve quality and production, save time, and eliminate waste.
HOURLY OEE LEVEL REPORTING
Partnership for Success
With Thrive, you’re never alone. Our team is here to help you analyze data and plan for improvements. Quarterly success meetings provide an opportunity to review progress, answer questions and identify.
Print Your Performance Snapshot Anytime
See your equipment’s efficiency, leading downtime causes, historical performance and operator comments—all on one page, in any date range you choose. The performance snapshot is perfect for the morning meeting!
Review Your Historical Performance
Historical performance charts let you trend your equipment’s performance by days, weeks, months or even years. Identify overall equipment effectiveness improvements at-a-glance and watch the trend as you reduce downtime and increase efficiency.
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.
Identify Poor Performing Equipment
Print out a road map of equipment performance for your morning meeting, right from the Thrive dashboard. Provide your maintenance team with data and true direction about your most inefficient equipment and see exactly how taking action would impact production.
Company – Wide Reporting
Thrive’s VP graphing tool allows you to see every location’s performance in a single report, so you can compare the plant as a whole and compare individual lines that produce the same product. Easily find plants that can accept more volume, as well as those that are underperforming. Use that data to allocate training funds, upgrade technology exactly where it’s needed, and implement standard work practices that will improve productivity.
