Automation Intellect Announces Launch of ChangeoverIQ, the First Digital SMED Solution for Manufacturers
ChangeoverIQ's online solution accelerates efforts to reduce costly downtime associated with changeover events
By: Automation Intellect
Changeover events represent the top loss for manufacturers and until now, benchmarking and improving changeover has been a manual, time consuming and error prone process.
ChangeoverIQ is a simple to use, online tool that provides real-time visibility into every step of the changeover process. The solution can be used to benchmark changeover times against goals and understand which events are costing the most production time.
"We developed ChangeoverIQ at the request of one of our global manufacturing clients," said Brad DeMarco, CEO of Automation Intellect. "Since then, it has generated significant interest from every client and prospect we talk to who see the massive opportunity for cost savings using our new online solution."
ChangeoverIQ includes an analytics dashboard to manage changeover efficiency and accelerate SMED (Single Minute Exchange of Dies) initiatives. Users can also perform time studies for insight into how operators are performing compared to goal.
Small improvements in changeover can have a significant impact. A global manufacturer reduced their changeover time on one line by just 5 minutes and is projecting savings of up to $375K annually.
The new module by Automation Intellect is the latest innovative release that helps manufacturers increase revenue generating throughput, decrease costs and improve overall plant performance. ChangeoverIQ is available online, no software download or implementation is required.
