Antares Vision, global provider of visual inspection systems, track-and-trace technology and smart data management, has launched AVionics, a comprehensive software tool designed to monitor equipment performance and efficiency throughout the production process. This system satisfies pharmaceutical companies’ increasing desire to leverage data initially generated to comply with serialization mandates in the U.S. and abroad.
By tracking various key performance indicators (KPIs), AVionics streamlines data into a user-friendly dashboard for intuitive operator decision-making. Information collected from production and packaging lines can then be used to improve business processes at all levels–from line-level manufacturing through overarching, enterprise-level metrics development.
Among other critical metrics, AVionics monitors production status, instant and accumulated speed, overall equipment efficiency and camera performances. Its ergonomic dashboard reports the performances of all OEE production parameters in real-time. Aggregation of this performance data then provides a picture of production processes, yielding more data-driven decisions toward improved efficiencies.
The AVionics OEE Tracker was designed to offer a cost-effective method of measuring and improving line efficiency. The system also provides data analysis while adhering to modern-day regulations, especially those regarding serialization and aggregation mandates.
AVionics is easily installed as an add-on, drop-in module on lines without impacting previously implemented validation procedures or the performance of existing systems.
