A multinational oil company uses Movicon.NExT to manage the production line of lubricating oil for motor vehicles in its ltalian plant in Cornaredo, Milan.

An intuitive and object-oriented interface is used to create reports within a few simple steps. This is facilitated by using wizards that are provided by the platform along with report templates. The operator can display, print and export the reports in any one of the most commonly used formats.
The Client’s explicit demands for a simple and effective tool that could ensure data collection, aggregation and analysis in line with Industry 4.0 that was also cost effective, were fulfilled with great satisfaction. Within just a few months of using Movicon.NExT, the end user was able to know which were the major problems causing production losses on the assembly line and during which production phases downtimes occurred most frequently.

Softec Srl from Parma develops software that manages automated systems in the palletizing and manufacturing plant supervision field as well as software for machine automation. Based on experience that expands over twenty years, the company offers specific manufacturing plant supervision applications, barcode recognition, product labelling and traceability systems. In addition, they also develop systems for calculating productivity performance indexes, Alarm analysis and statistics, which are productivity efficiency improvement-oriented.
The client, who assigned Softec the project, is leading manufacturers, distributors and suppliers of oil lubricants for a famous multinational oil company in the automobile, maritime and aeronautic sectors.
The Movicon.NExT platform is connected to all the assembly line machines with the objective to collect the information needed to monitor operating status, active alarms, instantaneous speed rates, counters and other items in real-time. This system has been designed to receive big data containing key information from each machine. These data are used by Movicon.NExT to calculate the availability, performance and quality indexes (OEE, KPI and DOWNTIME) as well as performing downtime statistics for the time ranged specified.
