SCADAware's StatusWatch Increases OEE By 20% or MORE

Rick Caldwell, president of SCADAware, personally told me:

"We have a heavy equipment manufacturing customer that is using MTConnect as the communications protocol to allow for simple and reliable connectivity to the machine tools. Through MTConnect, StatusWatch production monitoring software gathers pertinent data for real-time displays, and also deposits this data in a database to be used for historical reporting.

In every installation, when this data is studied by the plant personnel and actions taken as a result of what the data disclosed, OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) percentages are improved by 20% or more."

This is REALLY impressive and a great example of how MTConnect is helping manufacturing!  Thanks Rick!
