Balco Australia was looking to improve its plant performance by enhancing and automating downtime reporting
Balco Australia was looking to improve its plant performance by enhancing and automating downtime reporting capabilities and performance monitoring (OEE), to create a robust platform for continuous improvement.
Balco had recently transitioned their SCADA onto Ignition, and were looking to leverage the opportunities that Ignition offered them to leverage their data.
The scope of the project included production reporting on an hourly and per shift basis, with custom reports developed to match the existing paper based reporting. Integration with Balco’s ERP system enabled work orders and other contextual information such material grades and identification numbers, to be reported alongside OEE data.
Nukon was able to successfully implement the Sepasoft OEE module to meet Balco’s needs, delivering reliable data and significant time savings through automated reporting.
The project was implemented in a way that enabled Nukon to reuse the majority of the solution at other Balco Australia production facilities quickly and easily. Nukon is in the process of implementing the solution at another production plant.
