Accurate and reliable data is captured in multiple ways – ranging from a single sensor to a whole array of inputs, including OPC – with stoppage reason assignment being either manual, semi-automated or fully automated.
Any data captured by the Harford system is automatically analysed, prioritised and made available in real-time so that you can take instant action to improve performance. You can choose to view information as list (and export to MS Excel and other formats) or display it in a wide range of graphs and visuals.
We provide a wide range of standard reports with countless options to make them suit your exact needs for Overall Equipment Effectiveness reporting. The depth and breadth of Harford reporting are unrivalled.
From simple Pareto analyses to specialised improvement tools for cause and effect analysis, e.g. fishbone (Ishikawa) diagrams, to guiding your problem-solving process via a structured 5 Why process, we don’t just collect data and turn it into useful information, we make it easy to use!Request a demo
