ARCHFX ACTION MANAGER
ARCHFX ACTION MANAGER
Intelligent factory guidance
The ArchFX Action Manager is a groundbreaking solution that detects issues with machine processes and intelligently guides factory workers to resolve them. Unlike generic IoT systems that require users to be IT experts, Action Manager provides domain-specific alert modules, complete with the playbook to solve those alerts – all without unnecessary downtime or support from IT teams.
Preserving expert factory knowledge
The knowledge of factory experts is incredibly valuable to a manufacturing organization. It is important to preserve that knowledge before it churns out of the organization. The ArchFX Platform excels at capturing value from data left behind in factory machines. Action Manager adds to that as it excels at capturing knowledge from experts in the factory. This feeds an interface where workers across the entire organization can view relevant data and access a Playbook of recommended solutions for factory issues.
What problem does it solve?
Production issues in the factory are typically detected at the end of the manufacturing process. That’s because much of the knowledge that guides process resolution is inside the heads of experts on the factory floor, and most data-collection practices are not designed for real-time analysis. Action Manager captures experts’ knowledge and renders it alongside real-time analytics, identifying problems earlier in the process, resulting in improved efficiency, output, and reduced rework.
How does it do it?
At the same time that production issues are going undiscovered until the end of the line, work order, or shift, engineers and technicians are constantly scanning dozens of dashboards and monitors to spot problems. Action Manager automates this task with easy-to-use Alert Modules, freeing engineers and technicians to focus on solving problems faster rather than hoping they are looking at a dashboard at just the right moment to detect them.
Limiting downtime has always been a primary focus for manufacturers… but finding and fixing the causes of it can be challenging. The often cumbersome detective work diverts operators from other vital tasks while managers and engineers wait in the dark for the results of their investigation. Machine data can provide answers about downtime but every piece of equipment presents a unique, complex case, often using its own language to do it.
Intelligently closing the loop between IT and OT
The ArchFX Action Manager is a groundbreaking technology built around domain-specific alert modules with a simple UI configuration that can be used directly by manufacturing engineers and operations leaders in the factory- without needing IT support.
