In 2016 OLAM Cocoa has asked Magion to develop an application for Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
The goals of such an application are to record, visualize and identify production losses and their possible causes. These OEE data are to be used on a daily basis by plant management and production teams in order to improve productivity.
The production data, to be used by this application, are stored in an OSIsoft PI System, which was also installed and configured by Magion.
Magion has commenced with the design of this application at the start of 2016. The application used a calculation engine based upon standard PI AF functionality. The HMI was designed using state-of-the-art web design tools. The application has significantly increased the understanding and insight of the production efficiency at Olam in Koog a/d Zaan.
