DPM collects data from automation and operator engagement identifies production bottlenecks and delivers operational equipment efficiency (OEE) calculations. Combined with time loss Pareto analyses, DPM enables better decisions on where to invest scarce resources in the closed-loop continuous process improvement (CPI) initiative. DPM helps identify hidden opportunities for performance improvement that can lead to double digit improvements. Closed Loop Problem Solving and Production OperationsIdentifying bottlenecks in a consistent, repeatable way is difficult to do manually and is labor intensive. DPM for PTC provides a set of tools that largely automates the collection of data and identification of the production line’s pacesetting operation.
