From the KPI panel on the machine page, click on the menu option ‘Configuration’ for Capacity Utilization. You will then be taken to the configuration page. Here you need to select appropriate sensors to provide suitable input data for each part of the formula:
CU = (Actual machine rate / Maximum machine rate) * 100
- Actual machine rate: This sensor needs to supply data indicating the actual number of products being produced at that moment. The value of this sensor should be expressed as 'per second'.
- Maximum machine rate: This sensor needs to supply data indicating the maximum possible rate at that moment. In food machinery for example this will change depending on the product type which the machine is producing at that moment. The value of this sensor should be expressed as 'per second'.
- The targets panel within the KPI configuration pages allows you to set up cautionary and emergency targets. You will then receive a daily notification if the KPI value for the previous 24 hours falls below a target. It works in a very similar way to the threshold function in the sensor settings.
Once this is done, you have enough to click save, upon which your KPI will become active.
