Observation and analysis enable setting new goals. Configure PMP WePlane with data-driven goals to provide real-time dashboards that enable operators on the planer line to quickly resolve issues as they arise.
The result: fewer unecessary downgrades and higher efficiency. The information in PMP WePlane dashboards is the same as the one in reports, which eliminates the need to wait for the end of a shift to evaluate performance and the success of a production run.
We know that your reporting is still mostly managed manually and usually the responsibility of one person. Producing reports usually entails collecting relevant data from planer line equipment, and then manipulating it in spreadsheets.
PMP WePlane uses a data warehouse schema based on the ANSI / ISA-95 standard to structure and clean the data from your equipment. This enables pre-analyzed results that are consistent and reliable, and allow everyone—from operator to management—to have the information they need, when they need it.
15+ years of experience working with over 100 mills in North America has demonstrated that this invariably results in higher efficiency, more time for value added work, happier workers, and more high-quality products.
PMP WePlane data-driven insights—as opposed to data—made available to everyone lead to observing other areas of operations that need improvement. With this new information, you can start—as a team—a cycle of measurement, analysis, and observation that will drive your goals in an endless improvement loop not limited to the planer line.
All PMP TeamMate tools are designed to be easy to master, making onboarding experienced and inexperienced employees faster than other “performance tools”. They communicate the right information to the right person in a way that is quick to assimilate, even for a beginner.
PMP WePlane comes with a wide array of pre-analyzed reports that you can use in your daily planning and analysis. You can configure them in several ways to match your reality: by production, shift, daily, weekly, etc.—you can even configure PMP WePlane to email reports to specific users.
Displays information about production, downtimes, outgoing volumes, production rates, operational effectiveness, overall yield, board dimensions, a list of manufactured products and their distribution, line availability and productivity, as well as a quality indicator.
Reports real-time downgrading and trimming decisions by your optimizers for the last 3000 boards.
Ensures planing performs correctly, reducing verification times when changing dimension sets or worn-down blades. It displays information about production, downtimes, board dimensions, species (if supplied by the optimizer), the distribution of thicknesses and widths over the last 100 boards, the number of boards per minute, and more.
Helps you obtain the optimal value for your product mix by enabling operators to quickly identify quality issues. It displays information about production such as: total parts produced, percentages of certain grades, lengths, trim losses, and rejects.
