Dashboards let users create a one-screen view of machine tool performance data pertinent to job function. The program builds on the data capturing capability of the Freedom eLOG software suite, and combines multiple graphics, called dashlets, into a single view based on job function, such as maintenance, production, cell supervision and so on. Available dashlets include Banner, Summary View, Machine Status, Events List, Alerts Top 25, Events Top 25, Custom Column Chart, Embedded Page, Custom Stacked Bar, Custom State and Custom Data. Each can be set up for a single machine, a cell or a mix of various machines on the shop floor.
The customizable software lets users create their dashboard size and design, establish the machine scope, and determine the data criteria and refresh rate. Each dashboard can be saved by a unique name for ongoing monitoring, and dashboards can be edited, deleted or printed out for long-term record keeping.
The Banner dashlet creates areas of customizable text on the dashboard for report titles or descriptions. Summary View is an enhanced view of the eLOG Daily View report that includes a configurable set of data elements to be rendered over time. The Machine Status dashlet displays the current state of a machine or machine grouping based on the current Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT) span time category, while the Events List dashlet displays details on number of occurrences, duration and percentage in regard to total time values. The Alert Top 25 and Events Top 25 show the top occurring alert or event instances for a machine or machine list over a selected time period. Users can host an external web page on their Dashboard through the Embedded Page dashlet, providing access to business systems or links to external reports.
