OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) charts are among new features in the just-released version 8.3 of Hertzler Systems’ GainSeeker® Suite SPC software.
OEE helps manufacturers learn how well their assets are being used to produce quality products, and to determine if more can be produced during scheduled production times. It can also help manufacturers spot problem areas and times.
“Over the last few years, a number of our customers have used GainSeeker to collect and analyze OEE data,” said Evan Miller, Hertzler Systems Inc. CEO and president. “We looked at what they were doing, and added features to make GainSeeker even more powerful and useful in their efforts to drive manufacturing excellence.”
Version 8.3 also includes new scrap costing features, which Miller said are consistent with “Hertzler’s continuing commitment to support full integration between GainSeeker and other manufacturing systems.
“Our customers have scrap data in all kinds of systems, and they can easily analyze that data using GainSeeker Suite. GainSeeker’s drill-down features help them quickly get to the key drivers of cost and lost productivity.”
Another new feature in Version 8.3 is the Inspection Editor that can help customers easily create inspection processes. These processes can be run on a standard computer or a mobile device, such as an iPad that has the downloadable GainSeeker Collect app.
The Inspection Editor gives GainSeeker customers more power and options for setting up data collection scenarios, Miller said. “This is an easy-to-use editor for setting up simple data collection procedures. It puts more power control in customers’ hands. It can ultimately save them time and money.”
A unique feature of GainSeeker Suite is that it includes “all the tools in one place that can help customers improve processes, save money, and make their customers happier,” said Miller. “There are no ‘add-on’ modules to buy. They are all together in GainSeeker.”
Hertzler offers a free trial period for its software. The potential customer’s own data can be used to present a realistic picture about how GainSeeker can help save them money. Hertzler also offers a free web-based GainSeeker demonstration that provides an overview of all of its features. Visit the Hertzler.com website or call 800-958-2809 to learn more.
