smartOEE – MES Made Simple

smartOEE is a quick and cost-effective way to get started in the digital factory. Your production data is recorded digitally and can be reported directly in the cloud. By automatically calculating the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), you can derive optimization measures and increase the productivity of your production.

Your Benefit

smartOEE is a “turnkey” system that you can use immediately after simple installation and activation (plug & play). It has a hybrid architecture consisting of cloud and edge and facilitates your entry into the digitalization of your production with a Manufacturing Execution System (MES).

Of course, you can also take advantage of additional consulting services. We want you to get the most out of your production with our solutions. To achieve this, we rely on a partnership-based cooperation.

We offer smartOEE as Software as a Service (SaaS), i.e. as a cloud-based software model that is available to you directly on demand and is constantly being expanded with new functions.

By using the cloud, your data is available anytime and anywhere and can be used at any time. The Edge component guarantees reliability. (Always On)

Maximum flexibility with full performance: The up time of the rental is individually tailored to your needs and you benefit from short delivery times and reliable advice.

In addition to the software, you also receive the corresponding hardware and advice from our experts. We are your partner for the entire project.

With smartOEE, you can record precise production data. This ensures transparency and enables you to calculate key production figures such as OEE and optimize your production.

After receiving the system and the corresponding hardware, you can use smartOEE immediately (plug & play). We will activate the system for you via remote access.

You can integrate your entire machine park into the system and continuously add further functions. Our commitment to continuous further development means investment security for you.

Your Functions at a Glance

We use the tried-and-tested MES FASTEC 4 PRO as the software basis for data acquisition. The report is carried out in the pvaPRO cloud system. The result: a reliable, uncomplicated plug & play solution that you can put into operation quickly and easily.

Location Management

With smartOEE, you can manage your plants and users centrally. This not only simplifies IT administration, but also enables you to report on production data across all locations.

Data Acquisition

In addition to machine and operating data with a focus on Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), they also record machine up times and downtimes automatically and accurately.

Machine Connection

You can control communication with your machines via an I/O module. This is also possible directly via the PLC, such as Siemens S7, or the modern industry standard OPC UA.


Each machine is equipped with a touch terminal on which employees can log items and orders in and out. Faults can also be reported manually.


The reporting components access the data in the cloud, enabling reports to be compiled in customized dashboards. Templates are also available.

Key Figures

You determine KPIs such as Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) to evaluate the productivity, performance or capacity utilization of your plant.

6 Steps to Your "turnkey" smartOEE

You will receive your preconfigured system and the corresponding hardware within a short period of time. Implementation is simple and operation is intuitive. Support is then available to answer any questions you may have.







Reliable Shopfloor Connection

The edge components are provided by our FASTedge product family. You benefit from the option of renting our hardware flexibly and receiving a replacement device within 48 hours.

Hybrid Architecture

Thanks to the hybrid architecture model, your data is managed and analyzed in the cloud. Data acquisition takes place directly on the shopfloor and is therefore particularly high-performance.


The FASTedge Box establishes the connections to the cloud, terminals and machines. It not only performs system control, but also guarantees fail-safe operation (always on).


The FASTedge SFT15 touch terminal allows production employees to make entries on the machine. At the same time, machine signals are recorded automatically and manually.


Transparency in production and prices: Our configurator helps you to calculate your investment. You remain flexible by renting. Our sales department will then coordinate a tailor-made offer with you.

1. How many licenses do you need?

2. Would you like to buy or rent the hardware?

3. What support would you like?

You can put the standardized and preconfigured system into operation independently. We also offer additional services such as workshops, training and OPEX consulting. Our support team will be happy to help you with questions and requests for changes to the system.

With smartOEE, production data is recorded digitally and can be reported directly in the cloud. By automatically calculating the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), you can derive optimization measures and thus increase the productivity of your production.

State-of-the-art Microsoft Azure technologies ensure secure encryption of your data in the cloud. The FASTEC 4 PRO MES takes care of data acquisition and machine connection. The connection between FASTEC 4 PRO and pvaPRO is secured via HTTPS; authentication also takes place between the two. The data is stored on servers in Western Europe.

In addition to machine and operating data with a focus on Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), you also record machine up and downtimes precisely. The automatic and/or manual recording of e.g. quantities, scrap quantities and the assignment of states, e.g. production, downtime, malfunction, takes place.

Yes, the first month is free of charge. You can simply test the system without any obligations. smartOEE is a “turnkey” system. After configuration, simple installation and activation, you can use it straight away (plug & play). Depending on the payment plan, you can terminate the rental on a monthly, annual or individual basis.

We provide you with the entire IT infrastructure you need to get started successfully. All we expect from you is a functioning network and internet connection.

Yes, you can optionally book a preparatory workshop, a potential analysis, support with the machine connection or an OPEX consultation. There are also various care packages available for both pvaPRO and the FASTedge hardware. Here you have the choice between: Basic Care, Professional Care, Premium Care.

You can integrate any number of machines into the system and continuously add further functions. As the modular MES FASTEC 4 PRO is used for data acquisition, you can add all available functions at any time. You can find the entire range on our website.
