More Total Vu Benefits for Stakeholders
Benefits for Operators
Adoption by operators is critical to achieving your goals with any production system. The Total Vu HMI is embraced by operators for the following reasons:
- All of, and only, the information operators want is displayed—data, graphs, and data entry fields—so the operator is not overloaded
- Perform quick changeovers with one-click recipe selection from an unlimited library
- Eliminate paper record keeping
- Remove guesswork during startup with immediate product measurements, especially centering the die using UltraGauge+™ thickness and concentricity technology
- Build in relevant parts of your standard operating procedure (SOP) by customizing buttons and optional data entry: interaction with the system is minimal and tailored to operator tasks
Benefits for Engineers
Operator ease of use is necessary but the system must also deliver data and results for process and quality engineers:
- Analyze and monitor product quality with real-time statistics, control charts, and histograms
- Automatically control process parameters to achieve consistent product quality
- Analyze and improve the process with these tools: data logging, SPC sampling plans, Process Tracker event reporting, Attribute data, Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT), and other measurement inputs. Together, they provide a complete audit trail
- Document results with Excel-based electronic and paper reports
