FlexLink has recently launched a new tool to ensure higher efficiency in production systems called Youtilize®. Youtilize® is a toolbox that provides complete control over production processes and supports the factory’s improvement efforts.
The Youtilize® suite is available in three levels: Service Monitoring (SM), Production Monitoring (PM) and Factory Control (FC).
With Youtilize® Service Monitoring, the factories’ maintenance and operations personnel obtain direct information about the conveyor system’s availability, speed, uptime and energy consumption.
By measuring the production flow and collecting data from machinery and equipment, the line’s efficiency is calculated in real time. Production data, such as OEE, average cycle times, utilization and yield are shown and it is possible to automatically create and send reports.
Youtilize® Factory Control has MES functionality allowing full process control and a paperless shop floor. Factory Control’s main components are traceability functionality and routing of products, along with carriers, such as pucks and pallets.
