If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. Performance Improvement Management (PIM) is the wakeup call that traditional manufacturers have been waiting for, to help them optimise machine output, use their resources better and maintain high levels of performance.
Our PIM software offers a ‘window’ onto the shop floor to help companies identify issues
with machine downtime, reduce costs and engage operators to maximise productivity. The data collected helps companies understand what actions they need to take to make continuous performance improvements for the next month.
Performance Improvement Management (PIM) is not a new concept. Manufacturing companies have been trying for years to use production data to improve machine performance. The difference now is Industry 4.0 where any manufacturing company, with any machine, can leverage new technology and big data to analyse real-time production and deliver a cost effective solution.
Rather than be bolted onto an expensive ERP system, PIM from Visual Factories is a stand-alone product. Our PIM system can be connected to any machine and using a cloud-based server, it will collect, analyse and present the data from your machines wherever they are in the world.
Did you know that nightshifts are traditionally 25% less productive than dayshifts? Or, that many traditional UK manufacturing businesses are running at just 30% of their optimal output? We’re finding that typical 3-shift manufacturing operations lose on average 250 inefficient hours per machine per month. With PIM from Visual Factories, it doesn’t have to be that way.
