Production Loss Analysis (PLA), as part of Enterprise Loss Prevention, provides an overall foundation for understanding your true production capacity over time and the associated risks that, if left unmitigated, lead to production losses.

Production Loss Analysis

Production information and loss summary
Figure 2 - OESuite® Product Information and Loss Summary

The gap in the 100% production capacity level is categorized into loss categories and analyzed within the PLA Module, then prioritized into improvement efforts. As losses occur, OESuite® aggregates them into a Bad Actors list to get an understanding of the root causes and financial impacts. The PLA Module can also associate single day losses to one or more unwanted events with recommendations to address the root causes.

As losses occur, the aggregate impact to production is summarized along with the OEE codes in OESuite®.

The OESuite® platform enables users to calculate the cost of downtime (e.g., repair costs, production costs, and delays) to get back up and running as quickly as possible. As you optimize processes and improve production yield, OESuite® recalculates your key variables to ensure continued optimal performance.

With the OESuite® PLA Module, users can:

  • Monetize losses for meaningful comparison across sites
  • Target high-value opportunities
  • Capture daily production output
  • Document planned production
  • Associate actual unwanted events to production loss
  • Configure event triggers
  • Create choke models
  • Track and manage recommendations to prevent future losses
  • Identify and mitigate production risks
  • Monitor integrity operating windows, safe operating limits and consequences of deviation
  • Connect to leading data historians (e.g., Aveva PI, Honeywell PHD, Aspen Tech IP21®, etc.)

Achieve better processes, better management, and better results across your organization with the OESuite® PLA Module.
