Introducing Werma SmartMONITOR

What is SmartMONITOR?

SmartMONITOR is the smart MDC alternative for industrial companies looking for a way to quickly and easily gather reliable data to optimise their manufacturing processes. SmartMONITOR provides all of the relevant data for machines, systems and manual workstations easily at the touch of a button. Unlike conventional, complex MDC systems, SmartMONITOR is a simple, wireless-based retrofit solution for signalling and analysing your entire production facility – at a glance.

– Christian Hohler, Research & Development Director of Werma

With SmartMONITOR we help to make processes faster, leaner, better and more efficient – simply at the push of a button. The simple, wireless-based retrofit solution for signalling and analysing your entire production area ensures further growth and that you are always a step ahead of your competitors.

What can SmartMONITOR do?

EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL WITH SmartMONITOR

With signal devices, the control station module or a message on your smartphone you can shorten your response times and optimise your manufacturing process, with the guarantee that you will never miss a critical situation.

Everything is documented and the reports also show you how to permanently improve your processes and productivity.

PRODUCTION MONITORING

Transparency of the complete production facility, even if spread over several buildings

Identify free capacity

Overview of the complete production facility

Independent of the manufacturer of the machines and systems

MATERIAL FLOW

Optimise material flow process

Reduce flow time

Eliminate wastage

Increase productivity

Reduce costs and process times

INITIATING PROCESSES

Start or stop machines

Logical networking of machines

Head-of-Line function

THE SYSTEM

SmartMONITOR from WERMA consists of a wireless transmitter, a wireless receiver and the software. The robust and proven wireless network for the production environment intelligently searches for the best connection and thereby ensures the simplest integration into your production process. The included software already has integrated analysis and reporting tools.

SOFTWARE

CENTRAL CONTROL STATION

Control station offers an overview of all machines, equipment and workstations

Retrospective analysis of data

Process optimisation

React quickly to production disruptions

Produce reports

TRANSMITTER

WIRELESS DATA MONITORING

Can be integrated into the signal tower as an additional element

Monitors the status and counts the output of up to 50 machines or workstations

Data transferred wirelessly to the receiver

Initiates processes, starts and stops machines

RECEIVER

SECURE DATA COLLECTION

Receives all the data sent by the transmitters in the network

Transfers and saves the data to a Microsoft SQL database

INTUITIVE AND CLEAR – THE WIN SOFTWARE

The software supplied with the system is easy to install and leads the user through a series of steps to establish an individual network. It displays the status condition of signal lights installed in the system, enables the user to analyse runtimes, identify causes of disruption in operations and therefore improve efficiency.

REACT QUICKLY

CONTROL STATION

The Control Station shows you the operating condition of all machines or workstations being monitored so you can quickly see if a machine is in an error condition or running normally, or monitor which order is being worked on and the status of that order. This module helps you to quickly take action to reduce downtime.

INCREASE EFFICIENCY

PRODUCTIVITY MODULE

Using the Productivity Module you can check the productivity of your machines and workstations over any time period. You can look for example at the last working day, or define specific time periods such as shift patterns. Using this module it is possible to retrospectively analyse downtime and fault conditions and thus help improve efficiency in the future.

UPTIME / DOWNTIME

TOTAL PRODUCTIVITY OVERVIEW

Define the productive and non-productive statuses of the machine. The Productivity Module then enables you to analyse the real productivity of a machine, groups of machines or the complete workshop.

OBTAIN TRANSPARENCY

RUNTIME MODULE

The Runtime Module enables you to check the operation and downtimes of your machines or workstations. This allows you to compare several machines with one another in order to detect and eliminate errors that affect the production process. This leads to sustainable process improvements.

DOCUMENT PROBLEMS

ERROR ANALYSIS

Identify, comment and analyse the fault conditions. First of all define the most common reasons for fault status occurring, for example material shortage. It is then possible to retrospectively analyse the frequency and length of the fault conditions and ensure that the cause can be eliminated.

KEEP UP TO DATE WITH CHANGES

MESSAGING SERVICE

React quickly regardless of your current location. If the status of a machine or workstation changes an Email can be automatically sent to a PC or Smartphone of the person responsible. You can select to whom and after which time interval of the status change the Email is to be sent.

EASY TO CREATE

REPORTS AND EXPORT FUNCTION

The user-friendly report function in the Control Station, Productivity, Run time and Job modules offers the possibility of converting all existing data into individual reports (in tabular and/or graphical form). The report can then be individually amended, printed out, and be saved in various data formats (pdf, HTML, Excel, CSV, jpg).
