As well as other manufacturing, the plastic manufacturing also apply gradual transformation of digital systems.
The proposed Simulation 4.0 framework was designed to satisfy the following requirements to achieve the autonomous process simulation :
- update the parameters of the model based on information extracted from the MES (manufacturing execution system),
- Update the parameters of the model based on information extracted from the RTLS,
- Utilise the benefits of the object-oriented structure of the Siemens Plant Simulation software.
Since the framework has been developed to analyse the work of the operators, besides the widely used overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), the calculation key performance indicators of human resource effectiveness (HRE) are in the focus of the simulator.
We have had excellent experience working with blister and packing machines on toy packaging. Measure the efficiency and effectiveness of the production chain and system tracebility.
Initial concentration is how to get the scoring of the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). As well as combining several other KPIs such as Electrical Consumption, Voltage Quality, parts lifetime monitoring in one integrated system.
