OSF IT - Part Monitoring and Tracking (PMT)
Logging, analysis and preparation of workpiece machining data
The PMT (Part Monitoring and Tracking) plant data acquisition module logs machining parameters and results and also identifies faultily machined workpieces and separates them out. A complete machining history can be documented and analyzed on the basis of the data recorded.
Production companies are faced with a dual challenge: on one hand to maximize productivity by minimizing waste and secondary work and at the same time to be able to precisely document the route a product takes in order to comply with product liability requirements. Both of these require detailed logging and evaluation of production data down to the individual workpiece. Only in this way is documentation and analysis of the machining history possible, which then forms the crucial basis for further process optimization.
From the part to the finished product and vice versa – you have an overview of the entire process with Part Monitoring and Tracking (PMT). Whether for assembly results, production results for entire batches or individual installation parts, all data is neatly documented, constantly available and simple to access. The quality history is seamlessly tracked and statistical evaluations support production processes and enable process improvements.
PMT can provide you with support in various ways. Parts quality is improved, lengthy inspection procedures are significantly reduced. Statutory and contractual obligations in relation to the documentation of product history are satisfied and claims under the Product Liability Law can be better averted. An additional welcome secondary effect is that you also reduce effort and costs for production data acquisition.
