A great place to start is focusing on your top five sources of down time. Meet with your team, pick one of the five, and brainstorm countermeasures. Next, implement the most promising countermeasures and monitor their effectiveness.  Then – do it again.

XL800 makes it easy to reduce downtime by providing you with a complete, ready-to-go solution for down time analytics that is so fast to implement you can be up and running in hours.

What are my top sources of down time? XL800 presents your top sources of down time in a simple to understand format.

Top 5 Downtime reasons

How do I capture the data? XL800 automatically senses when your line goes down. Your operators simply scan a bar code for the reason. In fact, XL even generates the bar codes for you – right from its web interface. No software to install. No special printers.

How do I know if my countermeasures are working? XL800 automatically generates a trend line that clearly shows if down time is truly being reduced. You can view total down time from a historical perspective, or drill down to evaluate trends for specific down time reasons.

What else can I do? XL800 is a complete performance management solution. It provides automated, accurate real-time manufacturing intelligence to everyone in your plant. It includes a production scoreboard that motivates your employees to “win” their shift and it delivers web-based live production information to supervisors and managers – wherever they are.

How long does it take to install? XL800 is easy. It bolts onto your existing production process and you can be literally up and running in hours. Instant gratification is a wonderful thing!

How much does it cost? XL800 is a great value. The flagship XL800 is £2,910 (including a deluxe plant floor scoreboard). And every model includes our comprehensive down time tracking solution, along with other great features such as the Total Production Timeline™, the All Production View, live reporting, OEE tracking, and much more.
