The Takt Time Inspection Dashboard lets manufacturing engineers efficiently Identify lines needing reconfiguration and/or recipes needing rebalancing to improve a line's takt time.
You use these filters to select which machines you want to view:
- Site: Select the site you want to view.
- Line: Select the line you want to view.
- Machine: Select the machine(s) you want to view (or "All" for all machines).
Remember to use the date picker in the top-right corner to choose the time period you want to view.
Line summary statistics
After setting your filters, for the selected site and line, you see:
- Production Quantities Per Program, which lists all programs seen during the selected time period, and for each, the number of cycles completed.
- Takt Time Bottleneck: the name of the machine that had the longest takt time, and what the takt time was
- Limiting Cycle Time: the name of the machine that had the longest cycle time, and what the cycle time was
- Best Sustained Takt Time for Each Machine: for each selected machine, shows its name and the best sustained takt time it achieved during the period selected
- Median Cycle Times for Each Machine: for each selected machine, shows its median cycle time
Then, for each selected machine, the dashboard shows:
- Measured Takt Times, a time series. For each measurement, the timestamp, device name, takt time, and value are shown.
- Takt Time Statistics, which shows the 25th Percentile, 75th percentile, 95th Percentile, Mean, and Median takt times.
- Total Panels seen during the period.
- Machine Info: clicking the machine name will take you to the Machine Program Details Dashboard with this machine and the same time period selected so you can drill down on the individual machine's performance.
- Takt Times: a timeline charting all takt times observed during the period. Keep in mind that the first takt time of a shift or day will always be large because it includes all the time that has elapsed since the previous unit was processed.
