Manufacturing companies face the same challenges time and time again: What is the current status of my machines? What was the status in the past? What are or were the reasons for the disruption? What changes have been made to the NC program? TDM appCom provides the solution to these challenges. The application records the real machine data exactly where it is generated: In the machine control system. The data is transferred to the TDM appCom application via a web server. It is analyzed there and displayed in an OEE dashboard. The analysis results can be called up on a mobile device at any time.
OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is a method for monitoring machine activities and improving the efficiency of production plants. TDM appCom is the ideal solution for the OEE calculation: The machine data is recorded and analyzed 24/7 and therefore forms a comprehensive database for the OEE analysis. The TDM appCom software is directly connected to the machine, which means it is possible to intervene live in the process at any time. Production problems can be visualized and improvement potential is quickly identified and can be implemented directly.
TDM appCom is directly connected to the machine and displays the machine data in a user-friendly OEE dashboard. This allows clear decisions to be made on the basis of a comprehensive data analysis. Whether the measures derived from this actually contribute to the productivity increase can also be displayed directly in the software.
TDM appCom offers the following benefits:
- 100% transparency: 360-degree machine transparency: Quick overview for precise decisions
- Mobile data: All machine data is available on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or the shopfloor screen
- Live evaluations: 24/7 process analysis regarding the machine
- Automatic machine monitoring: Immediate notifications in the event of problems – these can even be configured individually
- Increased productivity: Converting machine down times into value-adding time
TDM appCom can be used on almost any shopfloor, as the software solution can be used independently of the machine manufacturer and works on all common control systems – even on older machines (up to 20 years old). Despite the diversity of the machines, the required machine data is recorded and is always displayed in the same way in the evaluations in the OEE dashboard. TDM appCom is available for machine control systems from Siemens, Heidenhain, Fanuc, or open standards such as MT Connect, OPC UA and UMATI. The software is suitable for small and medium-sized companies as well as for large production facilities.
