October 17, 2017 – Schneider Electric announced the continued expansion of its cloud platform, Insight, powered by Wonderware Online. A new Insight Performance module provides Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) monitoring, asset utilization analysis and downtime tracking in the cloud.
Insight Performance is designed to empower operators with data-driven KPIs and real-time visibility into equipment performance through an interface. Built-in analysis capabilities are designed to enable cross-plant equipment benchmarking that delivers actionable intelligence to effectively increase equipment performance and operating efficiency.
The cloud deployment model leverages conventional or IoT edge devices to collect operational data, sending information directly to a hosted online environment, bypassing the usual layers while remaining secure. Following this model, Insight Performance opens new opportunities for facilities with semi-automated or manual operations.
Insight Performance is the first operations and execution management module of the Insight platform. Production, Quality, Inventory, Asset Management and Visualization functionality is anticipated in the near future. This offering includes cloud and hybrid deployment models that can leverage edge and Industrial IoT devices for mission critical, real-time requirements along with adding value to existing, on-premises Manufacturing Execution System (MES).
