2020 has begun. A year where the business world will be more competitive than ever and where increasing the productivity without major expenses will be a need. We must be aware that if we don’t measure, we won’t get data, and if we don’t get data, we won’t take the right decisions.

Before applying technologies like lean manufacturing, we must perform an in-depth analysis of timings, methods and parameters that affect to our production processes. It’s essential to monitor the consumption of the machinery and the time that we spend in each product manufacturing phase.

These parameters are part of the indirect costs of the product manufacturing and they may represent a big percentage of the final cost. That’s why it’s essential to define performance indicators of our manufacturing processes, and those must be adapted to each business unit or industry. A list of examples:

  • Machinery’s consumption per usage time
  • Sum of manufacturing times per phase / Total manufacturing time
  • Comparison between indicators of different machines
  • Comparison between work shifts or operators

In addition, if we monitor the machinery that we use in our factories, we will be able to detect, in a preventive way, abnormal operating conditions or loses of efficiency caused by obsolescence.

All the measurements mentioned previously must be captured with the maximum rigor and precision, and without adding major investment expenses for the company, and that’s why SEM’s product range is the perfect solution to monitor time and consumption with the best price.

The new module of operating hours counting will allow to manage with precision how long an asset works to ease tasks of predictive maintenance, production control or energy efficiency.

As simple as choosing which electric parameter will enable the time counting (voltage, current or power, imported or exported) and a threshold to setup SEM to carry out functions of efficiency control of production processes.

This feature is available on SEM One, single-phase model, and SEM Three, three-phase. You can check all the documentation from SEM energy meters and TRA/ TRC current transformers at Energy meters menu, or if you prefer it, you can contact our commercial department to receive personalized attention and a product quotation.
