The system of accounting and control of time
Downtime at the place of production
Software and hardware can be used for log sorting lines, sawing lines, board sorting lines and other lines. The primary element or a source of information is a unit of the product fixed by scanner and by a sensor with the timing mark. When there are no events in excess of permitted time the downtime timing begins. The operator must enter the reason and close the pop-up window. Everything else the program makes self-acting. The program work is shown on the example of timber sorting line. In this case, the report can be fixed and displayed both by the top (sorting line) and on the bottom (bag former, palletizer). Automatically delays are classified according to the duration and time: long-term and short-term, regulated breaks, shift change, etc. If for some reason the operator did not enter the reason for unregulated downtime this downtime is attributed to the operator.
Figure 1 is a visual representation of operating time. You can see the percentage and duration of short-term and long-term downtime. You can immediately determine how effective the current shift is.
Operators of TOP section see downtime of sorting line, and the operators of bag former see his own downtime. Thus, each employee can evaluate the effectiveness of his work in real time during the shift. That, of course, increases productivity.
Time through which the short-term and long-term downtime is fixed , is given separately in the web-interface.
Each downtime is recorded and stored in a database Microsoft SQL Server and we can get detailed reports with broken down by shift, week, etc. and various variants of grouping by reasons, operators, etc.
