Downtime Tracking

Discover and resolve the causes of downtime. In real time.

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.  ArchFX™ React can extract and decipher data from every machine on the line — automatically measuring performance and downtime so that the front-line team can immediately collaborate about the issue, resolve it, and improve overall performance.

Manufacturers need to know how much downtime they have and why.

ArchFX React works in real-time…

enabling manufacturers to efficiently gather and monitor data on the causes of downtime as they occur. Operators and managers can view production status, current root causes of downtime, and projected job completion timeline for each line and area. Analytics from past shifts can help identify and prioritize actionable problems before they become problems so manufacturers can continuously and proactively improve performance.

The path to visibility and improvement

Manufacturers often don’t know how much downtime they have or why it occurs, because managers and operators can’t be everywhere at once. If a piece of equipment goes down and someone isn’t standing over it, time is already being wasted.

ArchFX React offers remote monitoring so manufacturers can measure when performance lags in real-time, detect where downtime is creating the issue and drill down to the root cause — clearing the path for operators to address the specific equipment issue and return the line to optimal performance.

ArchFX React creates visibility throughout the operation — monitoring progress of a work order, categorizing downtimes by type and root cause, and prioritizing the most critical and urgent issues to resolve first and deliver the most impact on results.

Proven Value

ArchFX React solves cases of downtime for the entire organization. From the individual machine operator to the C-suite, manufacturers can leverage new manufacturing insights that limit or even prevent downtime, enhance performance in real-time, and improve the bottom line.

  • OPERATORS get a quick and easy way to report downtime reasons without slowing them down
  • OPERATIONS MANAGERS get real-time visibility into the job, machine/line, and area status and the ability to review performance with teams
  • SITE MANAGERS get to easily monitor progress toward reducing downtime
  • ENGINEERING now knows the highest-impact causes of downtime to tackle first
