How ShopFloorConnect Monitors OEE
In order to collect machine OEE status information automatically, a ShopFloorConnect Machine Interface (SMI 2) is installed on each machine in your facility. The ShopFloorConnect Machine Interface (SMI 2) features a touch-screen display that allows the machine operator to select downtime reasons and enter data. With just a few connections to the machine controller, the SMI 2 can detect when the machine is running, count cycles or parts (where applicable), and inhibit machine operation after a stoppage until the operator specifies a downtime reason.
The Machine Interface communicates over your existing Ethernet to the ShopFloorConnect OEE monitoring software running on your server. ShopFloorConnect constantly polls the machines, and logs all machine time into one of five different categories or “states”:

In addition to making the information available in real time through the Factory Viewer, all of the information is available to the reporting interface to create downtime, production summary, OEE, and other reports.
