The most critical issue for an efficient production facility is to ensure the correct use of resources and their optimum operation. The maximum efficiency of the machines which are the most important resources, the controllability of the production line, and the ability to predict maintenance & failure situations are the most critical issues for a business. The way to profitability and efficient use of resources in the production line is through adaptation to current technologies and digital systems.
Machine failure losses are defined as the failure of the equipment foreseen to be used within the production plan due to the malfunction or unplanned stoppage. Every machine may malfunction, but problems in machines that are not integrated with the right technology cannot be detected quickly and reasonably, and this may cause the operations of enterprises to be interrupted.
Speed losses in production refer to times when the machines run slower than the Ideal Cycle Time. Low speed is not acceptable for some businesses as it is a significant performance loss. Among the most common reasons for losses due to speed problems; dirty or worn machinery, poor lubrication, or the use of substandard materials. Due to the failure of the machines to meet with the right technologies, the underlying causes of the problems cannot be identified and traced, decreases in the production speed are also quite possible.
Machining defects and process faults of the machines are significant losses of quality resulting in defective parts produced during production. Common causes of process defects include incorrect equipment settings, operator or equipment processing errors due to lack of technology integration.
Sustainable machines are types of equipment that do not pollute nature, protect natural resources, are cost-effective, and can also maintain reliable and healthy operations for employees, businesses & consumers in the long term. Ensuring the sustainability of machines is not possible without taking accurate actions through technology.
It is essential to determine and manage the performance of machines with IoT technologies in businesses because machine tracking has important benefits in terms of efficiently continuing the operations of the enterprises. The foremost of these benefits is that businesses' management can quickly make critical decisions about machines and processes. In addition, opportunities such as tracking production numbers and capacity planning, predicting maintenance & breakdown requirements also contribute to businesses.
