Real-time Monitoring

MDC-Max comes with several options for presenting real-time shop floor monitoring data. The monitoring data collected can be directed to large TV monitors and used as digital signage on the shop floor and/or in the office. For remote monitoring, all monitoring data can be accessed via any modern mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet.

Live Screens

Live Screens provide a list view with the current state of each machine along with information such as OEE, current job, operator/shift, parts produced/scrapped and cycle time. Machines are listed top to bottom with colors that clearly indicate the state of each machine. Colors can be set to flash on critical states and smaller notification/alert lights can be displayed by each machine. Live Screens are entirely customizable and can be displayed on large TV monitors as digital signage or on any mobile device using the MDC-Max Web Client. Live Screens come with both a bright and dark theme and can be adjusted for optimal viewing in different environments and distances.

Dashboards

Dashboards provide an overview of production data and relevant KPIs (such as OEE) at a glance. Dashboards can be customized to focus on different production facilities, different machine groups or other requirements you may have. Each Dashboard is made up of visual objects, called Widgets, and each widget is designed to present data in a specific way such as section header, bar graph, pie chart, value list, gauge, and more. Dashboards can be accessed from any mobile device using the MDC-Max Web Client and comes with both a bright and dark theme.

Shop Floor Screens

A Shop Floor Screen provides a bird’s eye view of a specific location, such as your shop floor, and enable you to see the status of all your machines based on where they are located. The color of machines change based on their state and smaller notification/alert lights can be displayed by each machine. By selected a machine detailed information such as KPIs (OEE), current operator/job and other relevant information is available. Shop Floor Screens can be displayed on large TV monitors as digital signage and can be accessed and customized from any mobile device using the MDC-Max Web Client. Shop Floor Screens are available in both a bright and dark theme.

Slideshows

Create roling slideshows with Live Screens, Dashboards and Shop Floor Screens for digital signage. Slideshows automatically scrolls to reveal the entire content of every screen and, if needed, can be paused and resumed. Slideshows can be displayed on large TV monitors as digital signage or on any mobile device using the MDC-Max Web Client.

Machine Timelines

Machine Timelines provide a complete overview of the current state of machines along with the recorded state within a specified time period such as the past 12 or 24 hours. Each machine state, including downtime reasons, is visualized with a specific bar color and can be expanded to reveal additional information.

Lights-out monitoring

If machines are running unattended MDC-Max can be configured to send an email and a text message to a stand-by operator’s or supervisor’s smartphone if a machine stops.
