Featuring information, recommendations, checklists, and procedures for a successful execution of OEE runs.
Applies To and Version Info
This feature applies to OEE 2.0 module and is available in version 2.0 or higher.
Always start counters at 1 because Sepasoft MES system doesn’t count the initial move from 0 to 1. Build out one cell first, and configure it completely with the proper counters, state, etc. Then use that cell as a template for the rest of your cells. This will definitely save your time.
Schedule runs can be created by dragging rows from an Ignition Power Table or the MES Work Order Table onto the MES Schedule View. See the Drag and Drop Scheduling for more details. It can also be created by right-clicking the MES Schedule View component and adding a run to the schedule manually. Runs can be set for a duration or to a particular production count. Each of the MES Work Order Table, the MES Schedule View, and the MES Schedule Selector will show the progress on scheduled runs.
Running Multiple Products on the line
It is absolutely necessary that counters be on the individual cells. Infeed Count and Outfeed Count equipment should be set to cells rather than to the line. This enables counts to be apportioned to the correct production run.
Indexing A Product
Tag Driven OEE
What we mean by "Tag Driven OEE" is not that the signal to start or stop a production run is a tag, but that all production data is directly controlled by tag values (e.g. product code, standard rate, units, conversion factors, etc.). Think of this as a passive OEE Module recording approach where values are recorded on change exclusively.
If your OEE implementation is driven by tags in this sense, never use system.mes.oee script functions. Instead, use a User Defined Datatype (UDT). Also, make sure that Equipment Mode, Equipment Product Code, Equipment Work Order, Equipment Operations UUID, and other key tag collectors have the same timestamp.
Do not use tag driven with scheduling or if you want to use extend it with Track and Trace module.
No user interface required with Tag Driven OEE.
PLC’s and Panel Views are already available.
Tag collectors are not recommended to be used in the designer, however, you can use it in the designer to write tag values using the system.mes.addTagCollectorValues() script function. Ensure that the timestamp is identical for all tags i.e. operation UUID, Work Order etc., otherwise, the analysis may return wrong results.
Script Driven OEE
Starting OEE Production Runs
When starting OEE Production Runs via script, we must first confirm that another run is not active on the equipment, we end current runs, or manage a running changeover. As a best practice, Schedule and Work Order creation activities should be separated from direct Run control (start and stop) for purposes of thread management and data integrity. I.e. Don't bite off more than you can chew.
Ending OEE Production Runs
When ending OEE production Runs via script, ensure only one Operation is active on the line at one time when using the system.mes.oee.endProduction() function.
