Data Acquisition


Position of Measurement

  • The produced & reject quantities can be measured by automatic means (DIN 8783, machine counter, control device counter, dedicated counter) as long as agreed between all parties.

For a Complete Line

  • The production counter has to be positioned so as to determine the exact number of containers released by the “leading machine” (According to contract terms). The rejects counters can be placed at any place of the line: the total rejected amount will be the sum of these counters.
    • The scheduled downtimes total duration will be calculated by subtracting the sum of the own and external unplanned downtimes from the total downtime duration of the machine system.
    • The line Running Time will be assessed by subtracting to the Operating Time, the total duration of the unplanned downtimes inherent to the machine system that has been supplied by the Supplier
    • The line Quality Time will be assessed by subtracting to the Running Time the duration of every stoppages of the “leading machine” due to the machine itself (critical machine own stops), scrap time or any performance loss time inherent to the machine system that has been supplied by the Supplier

For Stand Alone Equipment

  • The maximum speed of the equipment will be assessed two times, using the following procedure.
    • The equipment is stopped for a period allowing accumulation of containers upstream of the equipment and releasing the downstream line section from containers.
    • At its restart, the maximum running speed of the equipment is measured.
    • The scheduled downtimes total duration will be calculated by subtracting the sum of the own and external unplanned downtimes from the total downtime duration of the equipment.
    • The line Running Time will be assessed by subtracting to the Operating Time, the total duration of the unplanned downtimes inherent to the machine system that has been supplied by the Supplier
    • The stand alone equipment Quality Time will be assessed by subtracting to the Running Time the duration of every stoppages due to the equipment itself, scrap time or any performance loss time inherent to the machine system that has been supplied by the Supplier
