April 30, 2018 –Schneider Electric announced the launch of EcoStruxure Machine Advisor, a platform that allows OEMs to Track, Monitor and Fix machines remotely.
Building on its expertise in the OEMs segment, Schneider Electric introduces EcoStruxure Machine Advisor to offer efficiencies and growth by turning data into key insights for machine builders. EcoStruxure Machine Advisor provides a connected framework for machine operation through three key functionalities:
- Track: OEMs can visualize the location of all their machines, with real-time access to documentation and history, such as bill of materials, manuals, maintenance logs and task management schedules.
- Monitor: The cloud-based software allows OEMs to collect and visualize machine data in real time, giving an analysis of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), widgets for performance against key KPIs and other trends, and dashboards to monitor machine availability and output quality.
- Fix: A service enabled by a mobile app to facilitate maintenance and operations with contextual information, the help of step-by-step procedures and remote expertise by leveraging augmented reality. Fix provides remote access to the engineering software in the cloud enabling service technicians to use “Software-as-a-Service” to always have the right version and libraries by hand.
Machine Advisor gives in addition the EcoStruxure Augmented Operator Advisor app. EcoStruxure Augmented Operator Advisor puts real-time information at their fingertips, whenever and wherever it is needed. The custom application improves operational efficiency with augmented reality, enabling operators to superimpose the current data and virtual objects onto a cabinet, machine, or plant.
EcoStruxure Machine Advisor is part of Apps, Analytics & Services, portfolio of the Schneider Electric IoT enabled architecture: EcoStruxure Machine. EcoStruxure is an open, interoperable, IoT-enabled system architecture and platform. EcoStruxure leverages Connected Products, Edge Control, and Apps, Analytics & Services. EcoStruxure has been deployed in 480,000+ sites, with the support of 20,000+ system integrators and developers, connecting over 1.6 million assets under management through 40+ digital services.
