Sawing is the first wood transformation process. You understand that it’s where you maximize your productivity and lumber recovery rate. PMP SOLUTIONS understands sawmills: several breakdown lines feeding the trimming line. We also understand the challenges of synchronizing all the lines in the sawmill so they deliver what they’re supposed to, along with poorly functioning equipment and the log diet. We all understand that this translates into lower lumber recovery rates and operational effectiveness.
As such, sawing is the first place to improve. Automation and complexity being at all-time highs, it’s difficult to see if you’re efficient through reporting and volume only. You simply react to issues like more waste or a lower lumber recovery rate. PMP WeSaw™ will help you stabilize every aspect of your sawmill: ensure the right log diet, correct machine performance, and best processing speeds. The result: optimal operational effectiveness.
We understand that your reporting, although digital, is still managed manually and usually the responsibility of a single person. Producing reports usually involves collecting relevant data from every piece of connected equipment in your sawmill, and then manipulating it in a spreadsheet to get the desired business intelligence (BI). Timely analysis-ready reports from PMP WeSaw will often reveal information making it possible to set targets that can be communicated plant-wide, and used as stepping stones for continuous improvement.
Observation and analysis enable you to set new goals. Use your data-driven goals to configure PMP WeSaw dashboards to enable operators to be more responsive in real time, effectively optimizing your log diet, improving lumber recovery rates, and maximizing operational effectiveness. PMP WeSaw dashboards display the same data appearing in reports—with little to no manipulation.
All PMP TeamMate tools are designed to be easy to master, making onboarding experienced and inexperienced employees alike faster than conventional “performance tools”. They communicate the right information to the right person in a way that is quick to assimilate, even for a beginner.
With the right data from PMP WeSaw available to every stakeholder—from operators to management—everyone can confidently demonstrate that they’re working well. This way, you can enter—as a team—into a cycle of measurement, analysis, and observation that will drive your goals in an endless continuous improvement loop that will affect the entire mill.
Beyond coming standard with the full history of production and downtimes, analysis-ready reports, and configurable alerts, PMP WeSaw features:
