“Data is the new oil. It’s valuable, but if unrefined it cannot really be used. It has to be changed into gas,plastic, or chemicals to create a valuable entity that drives profitable activity; so must data be brokendown, analyzed for it to have value."
Clive Humby, Mathematician and architect of Tesco’s Clubcard
What Is OEE Software?
Overall Equipment Effectiveness, OEE, provides a continuous improvement process that can be employed on single and multiple production lines and from one to several group-wide features. It is an effective business performance management tool that critically evaluates the effectiveness of a manufacturing operation.
To sum it up, OEE measures the gap between the actual performance and the potential performance of manufacturing.
How The OEE Software improves Manufacturing
Many leading manufacturers use OEE software for the optimization of their production processes and the improvement of their factory floor machine availability, which helps in boosting productivity. By using the production tracking software, you can provide your business with many tangible benefits:
- Downtime tracking and Reason tracking to improve uptime
- Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for analyzing existing processes
- Accumulate production data to help make more informed decisions
- Businesses have a straightforward path which helps to achieve maximum production efficiency
- Visualize OEE data with grouped metrics for finding a way to improve production
- Identification of problematic areas for improvement with sophisticated reports
- Real-time alerts help in preemptively spotting upcoming issues before they happen
- Gaining deeper insights that are utilized for measuring manufacturing productivity
INS Provides You with Real-Time Production Monitoring and Control
Through our robust OEE software, we help in highlighting production performance issues, which allows your team to respond in an adequate and precise manner. A proactive team resolves issues more effectively and promptly.
Through predictive analysis, INS helps you forecast future incidents and identify improvement opportunities so that you can work toward achieving growth and efficacy.
Benefits Of OEE Software
When you have the ability to spot gaps in your operations and address them promptly, you are better able to address your manufacturing issues. An OEE Software provides:
OEE Software Solutions offer you insights that help to improve manufacturing outcomes in your facility. These reports and analyses serve as eye-openers, which means even when you are at peak operating capacity, there might be hidden ways for you to improve further.
INS offers a no charge walkthrough or workshop and a plant readiness evaluation that provides you with a proposal on what it would take to implement a base OEE or Downtime System and what type of results you can expect to achieve, both short and long term.

- Descriptive / Diagnostic analytics are used to describe what happened in the past and why it happened. Usually, Descriptive Analytics gain insight from historical data using reporting, scorecards, or clustering.
- Real-time analytics describe what is currently happening (e.g., the current location of the product, details on the progress of the manufacturing processes, or detection of faulty parts).
- Predictive analytics entail algorithms that engage in forecasting of future incidents (e.g., the possibility of a defect showing up). Predictive analytics signals the need for an action. Often Predictive Analytics use Machine Learning techniques.
- Prescriptive analytics provide advice on the best possible actions that the end-user should take. In other words, it answers the “what should happen”. Prescriptive analytics requires a predictive model with two additional components: actionable data and a feedback system that tracks the outcome produced by the action taken.

- There are three critical steps in starting on a Industry 4.0 journey. First is make sure you have “big data” to support the analytics you will want to do in the future. Second is get the focus on solving issues and optimizing process that will have real business value, not on putting in a bunch of technology that somehow will magically do that for you. Third is have the right team of operations, IT, and other departments to keep the focus, and good partners focused on results.

Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. Machine learning (ML) is the study of computer algorithms that improve automatically through experience and by the use of data. What does that mean to manufacturers. Using data and algorithms and computerized thinking to solve issue is the root of it.
By definition Industrial Internet of Things, typically is in the cloud. IIoT is a part of Industry / Manufacturing 4.0, but the vast majority of successful project related to Industry / Manufacturing 4.0 are utilizing data that is not in the cloud, or at a minimum started on premise, and was duplicated in the cloud. It is mostly about solving manufacturing issue, and optimizing processes utilizing data. That data is not required to be in the cloud, and most is currently no in the cloud.
A digital twin is a virtual representation that serves as the real-time digital counterpart of a physical object or process. It is less complicated than most think, but it basically having information available in a computer that you can look at the information and get a good representation of how that machine or device function during any particular timeframe.
Manufacturing Analytics comes in many shapes and sizes. You can collect data for years, and then give a good data person a process to optimize and they can do it using Excel. You can put in a good data collection system with good visualization tools to deliver the right information to the right people at the right time, empowering them to make good business decisions. It does not have to be expensive, and it can be scalable and done in a phased approach.
