Additional Function Alerting: In Detail
Alarms help you to quickly identify deviations in the production process. If something goes wrong in production, the FASTEC 4 PRO additional function Alerting informs you immediately. Especially if you are not in the workplace, this has a number of advantages. The alarm notifications are therefore broadly diversified. They work both on your PC and in noisy production environments. On the go, the alarms reliably find their way to your smartphone or tablet using the additional FASTEC 4 PRO Mobile Client app or by SMS.
Alarms can be triggered by various events: The change to certain, mostly undesirable states, timeouts, limit violations, performance losses, reaching set counter values, reaching the end of an order soon, shortage of material, etc. You are familiar with these reasons and the list can easily be expanded. Therefore, it is important to record as many sources of alerts as possible in a structured way. In FASTEC 4 PRO this can be any configured resource. You configure the events that trigger an alarm in so-called alarm chains. You can set delays and waiting times. This enables a multi-level escalation management that successively informs other recipients of longer-lasting events.
In the configuration, you can easily determine which machines are monitored in which way and which of your employee should be informed when and in which order by which medium. Is there a disturbance in a machine which lasts longer than three minutes or the defined target cycle of an individual working operation is clearly and often fallen short of, the system automatically alerts the previously defined individuals. You can also monitor KPIs such as OEE, NEE, services and more. In the event of critical deviations, you can automatically alert the responsible employees. In this way you ensure that appropriate measures are taken without delay to efficiently counteract downtimes.
