Machine Equipment Tracking
One of the key elements for the performance of your paper machine is your felt and wires. In the pulping area, efficiency of your refiners is related to your plates. Machine Equipment Tracking (MET) is the application that will help you analyze these and other equipment based on type and supplier with key measurements of their specific performance.
With MOPS historical data, you are able to compare selected equipment versus a previously used one from the same type or even a different supplier. MET also allows you to measure the equipment cost/production rate ratio. It is a powerful tool of communication between you and your supplier.
MET relates key process measurements to specific equipment. It can record specific information for each equipment in a section or position on the machine. It keeps track of equipment by ID and has a powerful tool to search equipment per supplier, type or time period. MET permits a free selection of trends from a process database, and uses a relational database for definitions of equipment dependency.
